She wrote: "Omg this actually made me laugh @paulknightley7 people literally don't leave off... we love you that's all that matters 30 tomorrow.”

Earlier today, Sam marked his birthday by sharing a cute message accompanied by six pictures of them together on Instagram.

She wrote: "We fell in love at first sight, 5 months later we was on the path to starting our own family, I love you with all my heart. Happy 30th Birthday To the most kind, loving, caring man in the world. Excited for celebrations with you & our family @paulknightley7 (these pics are pre babies ‍♀️)."

During the couple’s interview with Holly Willoughby and Phillip Schofield, Paul addressed the controversy surrounding that kiss on the lips with his mum Gaynor.

He said: "I don't find anything wrong with it. I'm really close with my mum. It's just something I've always done and will always continue to do.

"I even kiss my son and my daughter on the lips, it's just something we do. I didn't find it strange."
