Baby Blake is turning one!

Well, she will be later this week, but honouring the momentous milestone Brian Dowling and Arthur Gouroulian celebrated with a lavished party in Kildare’s Barberstown Castle, this weekend.

The soiree seemed to be jungle-themed with a giraffe sign at the door, animal cupcakes, and plenty of lion, elephant, tiger, and zebra décor. The decorations also included a life-sized carboard cut-out of Brian and Arthur.

Sharing a glimpse at Blake’s big day, Brian wrote: “Today, our darling daughter, we CELEBRATE YOU.”

“It’s not officially Blake’s Birthday till Friday, September 1st, but today surrounded by loved ones, we honour the love you have brought to all our lives.”

Saying: “I’ve been feeling super emotional all week, and I just hope I can keep it together until we cut the cake. It’s honestly been the QUICKEST YEAR OF OUR LIVES. Happy Birthday, our beautiful baby girl.”

There were plenty of familiar faces in attendance, as Arthur’s family flew over from France for Blake’s special day, and Brian’s family also joined the festivities.
