Fearne Cotton shares photos of rarely-seen step-daughter as she marks her 16th birthday

FEARNE Cotton shared photos of her rarely-seen step-daughter Lola Wood to celebrate her 16th birthday.

The radio presenter, 39, posted a selection of throwback snaps on her Instagram to pay tribute to the teen on her special day.

Fearne shares daughter Honey, five, and eight-year-old son Rex with her husband Jesse Wood.

But Jesse, 44, also has two kids from his previous marriage with ex wife Tilly Wood – Arthur, 19, and Lola.

The telly star has grown close to her step-children over the years and wanted to share some precious pictures with her fans yesterday.

In one photo Fearne and Lola can be seen laying down on the floor looking straight into the camera, while in another the two are stood facing each other with their noses touching.

She also shared an adorable picture of the teen giving her dad a huge hug, as well as another of the two on a walk in a forest.

Fearne captioned the post: "Happy birthday Lola! Today my magical, beautiful, clever step daughter turns 16.

"What a privilege it’s been watching you grow from a tiny munchkin 5 year old into a taller-than-me 16 year old.

"Sometimes I’m still in shock about it. It feels like only yesterday you were turning our sinks pink whilst making glittering slime in the bathroom.

"Have the best day Loli! Love you to the moon ♥️."

Fans flocked to the comments section to wish her a happy birthday, but to also say how much they loved the snaps.

Fearne likes to keep her family out of the limelight and rarely shares any pictures of her kids online.

One wrote: "Beautiful photos."

Another said: "These photos are so special hope she has the best day. Xx."

A third added: "What lovely words."

Fearne and Jesse – who is the son of the Rolling Stones musician Ronnie Wood – met in 2011 in Ibiza when the presenter was on a girls' holiday.

Speaking about when they first laid eyes on each other, the star wrote in Red magazine: "We spoke for seven hours, while friends danced nearby on sofas with luminous curly wigs on.

"The whole scene was utterly ridiculous, but perfectly magical."

They tied the knot two years later in Richmond Registry Office in south west London, after Jesse got down on one knee in 2013.

The pair celebrated their seven year anniversary back in July.

Fearnetold her 3.3m followers on Instagram: "As well as it being pops birthday it’s also 7 years since I married this brilliant human @jessejameswood.

"In @mscaitlinmoran new book she offers this golden nugget of advice ‘don’t marry a c*!?’.

"I’m so glad I followed this mantra. I’m beyond grateful for you Jesse ♥️♥️♥️♥️♥️."
