Kathryn Thomas and her daughter Ellie

Kathryn Thomas has shared a beautiful tribute to her eldest daughter, Ellie, to mark her sixth birthday.

She shared a slideshow of pictures and videos of Ellie over the years.

The Operation Transformation star captioned the post: “My baby is 6 today. Happy Birthday angel. I didn’t believe in magic until I met you.”

And she was immediately inundated with sweet messages from her friends and followers.

“Happy Birthday to Ellie!” Rosanna Davison wrote.

“Happy birth Ellie,” Ingrid Hoey commented.

Kathryn and her husband Padraig McLoughlin share two daughters together, Ellie and Grace.

The presenter opened up about her fertility struggle before welcoming Ellie, as she suffered three miscarriages.

Back in 2018, Kathryn appeared on The Late Late Show to candidly discuss her pregnancy loss.

“Well I suppose the reason I wanted to come on and talk about it tonight is because I was asked the question all the time ‘When are you having a family?’” Kathryn said at the time.

“It’s one that gets quite tiring but you kind of face it when you’re in the public eye. I understand why because before I got engaged it was ‘When are you getting married?’ and now it’s ‘When are you having kids?’ It kind of is a constant.

“I just found that talking about it, and sometimes I can stand accused of talking before I think or being a little bit too honest, and for me, what helped me is that there are so many amazing forums out there for people who have been through miscarriage.

“There are so many help lines. I didn’t go through counselling, but to talk about it, I think it’s still a taboo subject in Ireland. I just think it needs to be considered a part of the pregnancy process because it is.

“I hope it helps somebody. It’s taken us three long years. When I was asked to come on I thought, until I have a baby in my arms, it’s still kind of weird for me to talk about it.

“If it gives anybody hope out there, that you can just get to a place and try and stay as positive as you can, even when you don’t feel it. That would be the only piece of advice I’d give.”
