TOWIE star Billie Faiers told fans she was feeling "so emotional" as she marked her daughter Nelly's first birthday last night (8 July).

Getting ready for her mini-me to finally turn one years old, proud mum Billie pulled out all the stops as she prepared for Nelly's first ever birthday.

To make sure it was a memorable occasion, the reality star had laid out a spread of birthday cake, balloons, banners and, of course, plenty of presents ready for Nelly to wake up to this morning. And sharing her hard efforts on Instagram, Billie paid a sweet tribute to Nelly, reflecting on the past year with her little girl.

Alongside her photo, she said: "All set up for the morning ... My beautiful little Nelly is turning ONE tomorrow, feel so emotional how quickly this year has gone, I can truly say I have cherished every moment and am so proud of my beautiful, happy little lady."


One thing's for sure Nelly is going to be one very spolit bubba, not only did she have a pre-birthday TOWIE party earlier this week, but just look at all those fabulous gifts that were waiting for her. We're sure she's ripped them all open by now!

Earlier today, Billie treated fans to a snap of the birthday girl and she looked just gorgeous in her matching pink getup. Alongside her photo, Billie shared the caption: "My beautiful little darling ... ONE today .... Happy birthday Nelly I love you so much."

Billie's sister Sam, Nelly's auntie, made sure to send her well wishes to the tot too. Sharing a collage of Nelly looking oh-so-happy in all four pictures, Sam told her niece she has had the "most wonderful" year with her.

She added: "We all love u so much and can't remember life without u. You're a crazy little lady and you make us laugh every day."

Earlier this year, Billie told Reveal daughter Nelly and Sam share such a close bond.

"I like to think I'm Nelly's best friend but I think it's Sam really," she admitted. "They didn't see each other for two weeks recently and when Sam popped round, Nelly was laughing hysterically and kept laying her head on Sam's shoulder. They have a really close bond."

Billie and her fiancé first welcomed Nelly into the world on 9 July 2014. Since her little girl's arrival, she has continuously kept fans updated with plenty of pictures of Nelly, even treating TOWIE viewers to short snippets of her little one on camera too.

Embracing her parenting duties, Billie has said she and Greg would both like to have more children in the future. The pair have hinted they will wed this year.

Billie first revealed she and Greg were engaged back in February 2014, shortly after announcing her baby joy. He had popped the question while they were enjoying a sunkissed babymoon in the Maldives.
