“Happy birthday to my wish upon a star. Fifteen years ago today you sparkled into our world & life has never been the same. You are brave, fearless, funny & kind. And I’m so lucky to be your Mumma,” Jessica wrote.

The comments came flooding in, with people wishing Allegra a happy birthday and others calling them the ‘cutest mother daughter duo’.


Last week, Jessica also paid tribute to another family member, revealing she and her husband, Peter Overton, were celebrating their 18th wedding anniversary.

“8 years ago today I made the best decision of my life- marrying this darling man! And today we ‘celebrated’ by scrubbing the fridge for our move! (actually Petee did the scrubbing while I carried on like a pork chop!)” Jessica wrote.

Studio 10’s Sarah Harris commented with loads of love heart emojis, while TV host Sally Obermeder said: “Happy anniversary you gorgeous couple”.

Jessica and her family are currently in the middle of moving house, with the TV star uploading a photo showing a pile of boxes stacked in the hallway.

However, she made sure to have some fun over the festive break, taking to her account to upload a beach snap.

In the photo, Jessica is seen wearing a stunning Romance Is Born pink bikini and a feathered sunhat.

Jessica is the proud mum to Allegra, 15, and Giselle, 12. She previously spoke about being a source of embarrassment to her teenagers.

"They're always saying, 'Mum can you walk behind me? Do you really have to chat to me about things? I'm OK!'," Jess told Now To Love.

"It's that whole next new phase. I still learn all the time. What I'm discovering, even though your kids might push back against you and act like they don't need you, they actually need you more than ever," she said.

Jess quit her role as host of Studio 10 in 2018 to spend more time with her family.
