In the caption, Martine called her musician husband a “natural talent” and told him she is “so proud” to be his wife.

She wrote: “Happy 35th birthday to my hubby @jackmcmanus1 You know how much we love and adore you and you still give me butterflies after 12 years!

“You are a ray of sunshine to all you meet and a phenomenal, natural talent who loves to nurture and see others succeed and thrive… I’m so proud to be your wife, your muse and best friend!

“You’re the most amazing daddy to Rafferty and your handsome cheeky little face lights up our life.

Writing further, she joked: “Enough of the compliments – here I am regretting thinking our house is a club in St Tropez with firework birthday candles.

“The second picture of me posing and you guys looking worried sums us up! Now can you take the bin out? It stinks. #birthdayboy #weallloveyou #35 #stillrockinourworld.”

Martine and Jack welcomed Rafferty to the world in 2015, after the star suffered a string of heartbreaking miscarriages.

Last year, she spoke about the possibility of having more kids in a conversation with The Mirror.

She told the paper: “I’d love another – I wouldn’t worry about being a mum in my mid-40s. If you take care of yourself and your body is in great nick and it’s meant for you it will happen.”

Martine shot to fame as Tiffany Mitchell in EastEnders, playing the character from 1995 until her dramatic departure in 1998.

Last month, her former co-star Patsy Palmer suggested Tiff should be brought back from the dead for an EastEnders reunion.

On Instagram, she posted a ’90s throwback picture of herself and Martine kissing, writing alongside the photo: “Maybe they should being Tiffany back from the dead…”
