Looks so much like his dad

Alongside a string of photos of the teenager, Jeff wrote: "Oh this wonderful, thoughtful, kind, considerate and funny little boy has entertained, amused and challenged us at every turn and now, today, he turns 15!

"Happy birthday Freddy, what you have in abundance, the heart, the awareness and the humour will take you a very long way. Proud of you."

Proud of you.

In the comments, one fan wrote: "His mummy would be proud of the amazing job you have done. Happy birthday."

Another said: "Happy birthday, Jade would be so proud, and of you for being such a great father x."

"He looks so much like Jade," commented a third.

Jeff shared pics of his youngest son last month and fans were stunned at how much he looks like his dad.

The pics, which showed Freddy sitting on a cafe windowsill reading a book, came with an insight into Jeff's parenting techniques.

He wrote alongside the post: "I want him to stay a child for as long as possible and to some kids, a phone and unmonitored access to social media is an unfair burden and pressure for them to carry.

"Don't feel guilty restricting access to technology but instead feel proud to protect the greatest asset they'll ever have, the mind."

Jeff had a tough time earlier this year when Channel 4 aired a difficult-to-watch documentary about Jade.

Jeff revealed that he didn't let his sons, 16-year-old Bobby and Freddy, then 14, watch the series as they weren't "quite ready" to deal its more "adult themes".

Admitting the docs pose a "tricky" parental challenge, Jeff noted he was not opposed to the content of the series and considered it to be "well made".

The concerned dad explained to the Daily Star: "While they are coming to the end of their childhood, and they are able to take on board more adult themes, I don't think they are quite ready to watch a large percentage of what was being shown."
