Rachel captioned the post: “1st Christmas down, 8 nights of Chanukah down, now on to Russian New Years for this little party animal!”

Referring to a London synagogue and shops targeted with antisemitic graffiti and recent stabbings in New York, Rachel added: “My thoughts with those in New York and London who’ve had those celebrations marred.

“Hate will never win. Love to all this week, here’s to a brighter future.”

Fans gushed over the sweet post with one person writing: “I love this sentiment. Thank you and festive cheer to you all.”

Another said: “Beautiful photograph,” while a third commented: “Wow she looks so like her mummy.”

She wrote: “As a parent it’s important your kids make their own choices in life, no pressure, she can support whichever football team she likes… so long as she picks a red one that plays in Manchester.

“Huge thanks to our friends and @manchesterunited family for all these amazing gifts!

“Such a lucky girl (and very happy Mum!).”
