It was a weekend to celebrate for Tara O’Farrell as her little boy, Jools turned one. Sharing some snaps of the family celebration to social media she said; “Happy Birthday to Jools.”
“A little tea party today to celebrate one whole year of you!” alongside some adorable snaps of the little one in a cardigan with his name knitted on the back.
Many well-known faces, and friends of Tara shared their birthday wishes for little Jools with Clementine MacNeice commenting; “Gorgeous photos!! LOVE his wee knit” and Rosanna Davison shared; “Happy birthday to Jools!”
With so many of us having to spend occasions and big birthdays apart from loved ones due to the pandemic, it’s lovely to see families able to enjoy these moments together once again. Tara shared last year how difficult it was having a newborn during lockdown; “In some ways it’s similar to after I had Gene, I did nothing other than stay at home and get out for walks for the first while.”
“The hardest part is people not getting to meet him and sending videos and pics to friends and family.”
The 34-year old continued; “Coming home with a newborn to a toddler is different too, it’s very busy in our house at the moment so I wouldn’t be getting out much and going anywhere anywhere at the moment even if things were open.”
The make-up guru and her husband Daniel announced the arrival of their second son at the start of February last year. Despite on-going hospital restrictions at the time due to Covid-19, Tara shared that she felt safe and at ease as she welcomed her newborn into the world.
Taking to social media, the new mum said, “Seeing first hand the work the midwives and nurses did and the care and compassion they showed me no matter how run off their feet they were, that will never be forgotten.”
She added that she’s “eternally grateful to frontline workers and everything they do for us especially this past year.”
