Holly Willoughby, 38, keeps her three children, Harry, nine, Belle, eight, and Chester, four, out of the limelight and keeps their identities private on social media by concealing their faces in pictures. In a rare glimpse at her family life, the This Morning presenter wished her only daughter a happy birthday with a touching post earlier today. Uploading a snap of Belle on a beach, gazing away from the camera at a rainbow, Holly wrote in view of her 5.4 million Instagram followers: “And then like that she was 8… Happy birthday beautiful Belle…” she added.
“Keep following that rainbow… Love you so much.”
Holly’s famous friends took to the comments section to share their birthday wishes with her daughter, with Davina McCall, 51, writing: “Happy birthday Belle!!!”
“Beautiful Belle,” Angela Scanlon, 35, added, while Scarlett Moffatt, 29, also said: “Happy birthday Belle.”
Holly shares Belle, Chester and Harry with her husband Dan Baldwin.
The couple first started dating in 2004 and tied the knot in 2007.
“I’m always broody,” she told Stella Magazine. “Part of me wants another baby but part of me thinks that’s not a good enough reason!
“I’ve almost decided not to… but not quite,” she added.
Last month, Holly and her family enjoyed a flying visit to New York City.
Sharing a few peeks at their getaway on Instagram, the mother-of-three revealed they had been to see Disney’s Frozen on Broadway.
Posing with the stars of the show, Holly said: “Whistle stop weekend in NY with the highlight being meeting Anna and Elsa, the stars of @frozenbroadway…
“The kids’ first Broadway experience and we all just LOVED it,” she added. “As a huge fan it exceeded all expectations and that’s saying something.”
She also uploaded another shot of her children walking through Times Square with their dad.
“The best of Times (Square) with these four,” she quipped.
Holly is best known for hosting This Morning alongside her long-time presenting partner Phillip Schofield, 57.
The pair also present Dancing On Ice, while Holly has been a team captain on Celebrity Juice since the ITV comedy panel show first aired in 2008.
