Emma Willis has posted a rare snap of her beloved son Ace and shared his adorable nickname as he turned nine.
The Voice star shares Ace, Isabelle 11, and Trixie, four, with Busted star Matt Willis.
The proud-mum-of-three, 44, paid tribute to her “open-minded” and “creative” little boy in a gushing Instagram post on Friday.
Alongside a heartwarming photo of Ace planting a kiss on his mum’s cheek in a sweet embrace, Emma said she’s constantly in awe of her son.
“Happy birthday baby boy,” she started off the emotional post.
“9 years gone in the blink of an eye; it really does fly by doesn’t it.
“He’s the kindest kid with the sweetest of souls, I am constantly in awe of him.
“Pure and true in everything he does, open-minded, thoughtful, inquisitive and a creative mind that is constantly exploring.
“He melts my heart daily, and I hope he kisses me like this forever. Keep being you Squidge.”
Last month, the brunette beauty said that she was left completely overwhelmed by the stunning response to a picture of Ace which swept the social media world by storm.
Emma’s son was showered with praise and compliments after she posted the snap of him looking incredibly stylish in a pink T-shirt, jeans, and pink trainers, with his long blond hair hanging around his shoulders.
Emma had shared the snap on Instagram , writing: “My little style icon (Ace, not Matt) #Acedit”.
The star was praised for sharing the post, which fans said broke down gender stereotypes.
Opening up about her stylish son during a recent appearance on Good Morning Britain, Emma said she was overwhelmed by the response to the photo.
“I was really overwhelmed actually because it’s just my son in a pink top and for me that’s kind of normality because he loves colour, he’s always had long hair,” she said.
“He’s a very free and open-minded boy who is like, ‘Why do I have to dress in green and blue and grey if I like pink and red and purple? Why is that not okay?’
“We’re raising him as an open-minded and inclusive individual.”
