It's a big day in Katherine Jenkins' household! The opera star's youngest child, son Xander, is celebrating his second birthday, and to mark the occasion, Katherine took to Instagram to share a very rare snapshot of her little boy. The picture shows Xander dressed in dungarees, a T-shirt, hat and red wellies. Given Katherine’s protective approach to her young family, she has covered his face with a love heart. "2 years ago today this little angel came into our lives – strong, sweet, funny and such a charmer! Xander, Mummy and Daddy love you more than you'll ever know – thank you for bringing such joy to our hearts. Happy birthday X Man!" she captioned the post.

In an interview last year, Katherine gave a rare insight into her home life, admitting that she won’t speak to Aaliyah and Xander in the run-up to a big performance in order to rest her vocal chords. Appearing on This Morning, she explained: "They think it's a game. When I get up in the morning, my daughter says, 'Mummy, are you talking today?' It's a massive game of charades."
