Danielle Armstrong gushes over daughter Orla on 3rd birthday – ahead of second childs birth

TOWIE's Danielle Armstrong, 35, celebrated her little girl Orla's third birthday on Friday by posting an adorable selection of her favourite moments from the youngster's first three years.

The reality star took to Instagram to share some of the family's most special moments including smiling holiday snaps and stunning photos of Orla Mae at Danielle and Tom's wedding in August 2022.

Writing alongside the emotional post, Danielle said: "My Little Angel Face is 3 Today", accompanying the sweet words with crown, star and party emojis and the Angel of Mine track by Monica playing over it.

She went on to add: "It only feels like yesterday we got to meet you for the first time and our whole world changed. 3 years of loving you my little Orla."

Danielle, who is best friends with fellow former TOWIE castmate Fern McCann, 32, announced that she and Tom were expecting their second child in January.

Revealing their happy news to her 1.3million followers, Danielle said they were "over the moon that we will be adding another bubba to our family in summer 2023." Adding that blue-eyed tot Orla "is going to be the most amazing Big Sister" to the new addition.

On Friday, Danielle also shared a gorgeous moment between the mum and daughter as Orla gently touched her mum's growing baby bump.

Posting on her stories on the eve of Orla's big day, Danielle said she couldn't believe her "baby" was about to turn three.

"How is my little bubba going to be three?", she laughed as she cuddled the excited toddler in the family's kitchen at their stylish four-bedroom Essex home.

Also revealing Orla's special birthday present – a mud kitchen in the garden – Danielle showed her and Tom, who tied the knot at a country estate in Hertfordshire in August 2022, putting the final touches to her big gift.

They decorated it with lots of plastic flowers and wooden ladybirds, along with all the mud kitchen essentials including pans, spoons and a sink. "She's absolutely going to love this," Danielle giggled.

Danielle's celebrity pals were quick to wish the tot a happy birthday, with Fern McCann, writing: " Happy Birthday Baby girl. We love you so much. You are the happiest little soul have the best day" followed by a heart emoji.

Chloe Sims also commented, adding: "Awwww happy birthday Orla xxx", while Goggleboxe's Lisa Baggs said: Happy Birthday Orla ! x x x".

Danielle and BFF Fern – who is also due to have her second baby this summer – have been by each other's side throughout their latest pregnancies. The pair showed off their matching baby bumps earlier this month when they celebrated the launch of Fern and fiancé Lorri Haines' new mental health and well-being app, Shoorah.

While Danielle has looked stunning throughout both her pregnancies, she recently revealed that her skin changes "so much" over the nine months, especially when she goes out in the sun.

Sharing a photo from the family's recent holiday in Marbella, Danielle showed a close-up snap of her make-up free skin and freckles across her nose.

“Waking up on our last day of our family holiday, I wanted to share this selfie with you all to show what my skin is really like without the makeup and Insta story filter. During pregnancy my skin changes so much but especially in the sun, I wear factor 50 and wear a hat as much as I can but I still get some patches of pigmentation and I’ve always had freckles in the sun which I actually like."

She also said the hormone changes make her lips swell – responding to questions from fans about whether she's been having fillers – saying she wanted to "embrace the 'au natural look' on the gram for once.”
