Her followers rushed to the comment section to share their responses. "Lovely photo. Happy Birthday," one wrote, with another adding: "Happy birthday!"

A third commented: "Beautiful picture! So glad his birthday was special!"

Penny is a doting mum and explained one aspect of her approach to raising young children in a heartfelt Instagram post earlier this year, after sparking debate on Loose Women by revealing that she was a fan of the 'cry it out' technique.

The mum-of-two detailed how she and Rod used the technique under the supervision of their paediatrician, which involved weaning Alastair off his night-time feeds and letting him cry himself to sleep "over 2/3 nights" before, as Penny explained, "he slept the whole night through!!!!"

The star went on: "There is no one-size-fits all approach… CIO or as I like to call it, teaching self-soothing (at the right time) is truly a gift of night-time sleep that will really help long term."
