Proud mum Jacqueline Jossa has already ear-marked daughter Ella’s future career, after declaring her support for women’s football.
The EastEnders actress, best known for playing Walford’s Lauren Branning, couldn’t resist sharing an adorable photo to Instagram showing little Ella, two, clad in a Crystal Palace FC away kit in support of the team’s player Ciara Sherwood.
Jac wrote alongside the snap: “Supporting her auntie Ciara Sherwood!!
“Women’s football is so cool!! One day, Ella!! She can’t wait till she is 3 so she can play with you!!
“Happy birthday again!!”
It’s not the first time Jacqueline, 24, has alluded to Ella’s passion for football.
In July she shared an image of the little girl kicking a ball around, saying: “My little footballer, gotta get her some footy boots for sure! She’s actually so good! @ciarasherwood you would be proud!”
She’s also shared a picture of Ella clad in her very own Northern Ireland football shirt – again, in support of Northern Irish footballer Ciara.
Jacqueline and her former TOWIE star husband Dan Osborne, 26, welcomed Ella in February 2015.
Dan is also dad to son Teddy, three, from a previous relationship.
Jacqueline and Dan married on June 24 at a country mansion once owned by Gary Barlow.
Paying tribute to Jacqueline at the ceremony, an emotional Dan had said: “You look absolutely beautiful. I couldn’t be more proud of you. You’re my best friend, you’re everything to me.”
“But the most important thing is that you’re the best mum. I love you so much!” he added, as reported by OK! mag, which covered the wedding.
“I never thought I’d have a wife, to be honest, but then I met this one and everything changed. She’s the best.”
Jacqueline sparked rumours of a pregnancy back in July, when she shared a photo of her, Dan and Ella to Instagram with the caption: “3/4 of the Osborne clan!!”
It immediately sparked a flurry of fan responses asking if a baby was on the way, with dozens leaving baby emojis on the post.
Jac found it all quite amusing and replied to say, “Lol!! No pregnancy!”
Fans then realised the post likely referred to 3/4 of the Osbourne clan as Dan’s son Teddy was not in the picture.
