She captioned the post: “Like butter wouldn’t melt… #garden #shadyspot #mumanddaughter #love #sunshine.”

Fans commented on the post saying how much the mother and daughter look alike.

One wrote: “Your daughter is the image of you Samia xx.”

A second commented: “Like her mum.”

A third said: “What an amazing picture of you and your daughter, she really looks like you.”

Another added: “Now what’s that saying I wonder, about apples and trees.”

Freya is Samia’s oldest child. Freya’s father is Samia’s ex-husband Matt Smith.

After splitting from Matt, Samia went on to meet and marry Dancing On Ice professional Sylvain Longchambon.
