She wrote: "Happy birthday gorgeous lady."

Holly has previously spoken of how close she and Kelly have always been.

"We're more like friends than sisters. We even bought a place together in Putney. You would expect some fireworks, but because we have the same friends and have different roles within that group, none of that ever came into it," she told The Guardian.

She added that Kelly is great at keeping her organised.

Her big sister agreed, and said they continue to enjoy spending time together now they both have families of their own.

Holly is a mum to Harry, Belle and Chester with husband Dan Baldwin, while married Kelly has daughter Darcey, who featured on the cover of Holly's book Truly Happy Baby.
