Looking emotional, she added: "I know you're going to have an amazing night tonight when you leave us oldies and I couldn't be prouder and love this human more than I do."

Louise shared this emotional post

Earlier on, the singer shared a series of throwback photos of the mother-and-son duo as she confessed she was going to miss her firstborn when he leaves for America.

"To my big boy I can't put into words how much I love you, and how proud I am of you [heart emoji]," she wrote. "I can't believe this time 18 years ago you came into my world, you're my best friend, my rock and have been right by my side since the day you were born.

"You mean the world to me and I’ll be there too for you in this next chapter in life driving you mad being over protective and probably jumping on a plane every weekend to Arizona."

She added: "Enjoy your day and night, I'll allow you to make a mess in the kitchen today… just this once! My superstar! Happy 18th Birthday Chaz… Love Mum Xxxx."

Jamie and Louise are also parents to son Beau, 13. The former couple were married for 19 years before their divorce in December 2017.
