Meeting Father Christmas

It's her first Christmas as a mum and Tamara Ecclestone is doing everything she can to make sure it is a special one for her daughter, 10-month-old Sophia. Lucky Sophia has had not one but two visits to Santa's Grotto - and not one, but three visits to Winter Wonderland in Hyde Park!


The mother-of-one initially took her adorable daughter to meet Father Christmas for the first time on Saturday (December 20). She was all smiles in a pic she posted on Instagram as she, Sophia and husband Jay Rutland posed for a photo with Saint Nick.

Clearly making the most of the Christmas cheer, the 30-year-old then took Sophia to visit another Santa yesterday. Both mum and baby are sitting on Santa's lap and from the picture we couldn’t tell who was more excited (probably mum).

She perfectly summed up her joyful spirits with the caption “The best time of year.”

And judging by other pictures posted on her Instagram account this month, Sophia and mum have been having one long festive celebration – celebrating with homemade Christmas cakes, visits from grandparents and even a few special gifts from Santa. As it should be (if we could only all do it)!

The first Father Christmas

10-month-old Sophia showed off a priceless facial expression in the pic as she sat on her mum's lap, which Tamara called "intrigued" on an accompanying caption.


Father Christmas again - but looking a little different

On their second visit to Santa Tamara seemed even happier to see Saint Nick than her baby daughter, let's hope she got all of her Xmas wishes in.


A ride on a reindeer

In one of her three trips to Winter Wonderland, Tamara and Sophia take a ride on a carousel. The 30-year-old later admitted on Instagram that she "Can't get enough of Winter Wonderland."


Special delivery

Earlier in the week the Formula 1 heiress shared a cute picture of her daughter trying to tackle her present from Father Christmas. The massive gift was clearly too big for Sophia to handle, but it looks like she gave it a good go!


This cake's on fire!

In between trips from grandparents and trying to open huge presents, baby Sophia also enjoyed her first Christmas cake, lovingly baked by her mother and creating rather a sparkle. That's what we call special Christmas weaning food!
