Billie Shepherd is a proud mum as daughter Nelly, 9, launches modelling career

Billie Shepherd is a proud mum as she revealed that her daughter Nelly, nine, has launched her modelling career.

The nine-year-old helped design two coats and was seen preparing for her first solo fashion shoot during an episode of the famous family's popular series, Billie & Greg: The Family Diaries.

But TOWIE icon Billie, 33, couldn't contain her excitement as she gushed over Nelly's huge achievement and opened up about how proud she was of her eldest daughter.

The 33-year-old TV star shares three children, Nelly, nine, Arthur, six, and baby Margot, with her husband Greg Shepherd who she married in a lavish ceremony in the Maldives back in 2019.

During a recent episode of their reality show, proud mum Nellie and her hubby Greg discussed Nelly launching her very own clothing brand in partnership with Equidry.

Gushing over her daughter's big moment, Billie told the camera: "Today is a really big day for Nelly. It's the first time she's seeing the coat she's designed in real life."

Nelly modelled two coats – one blue and another in pink – that she helped to design.

But when asked if she was excited to share her big news with her friends, the nine-year-old admitted she was slightly annoyed as her pink coat hadn't arrived before the shoot.

While being pampered in the kitchen, she said: "Yeah, but I'm a bit annoyed the pink one hasn't arrived yet."

But mum Billie, who has a string of photoshoots under her belt, promised her little one: "Sometimes with shoots things like that happen. It's frustrating but as soon as it's ready they'll send it to you."

In the end, Nelly was all smiles as she posed for snaps in her new garment.

Then on Wednesday, Billie took to Instagram to share photos of the shoot with her 2.7 million followers.

She announced: "The first Nelly x @equidryuk coat is now live and available to buy online in Bambi Blue. We are so proud of Nelly she has designed this coat from scratch and has done such an amazing job.

"The coat is available in all 12 sizes so that adults can wear it too, and you can use code NELLY for £10 off her collection.

"She hopes you all love it as much as she does. Nelly has been so excited for this. Coat 2 coming soon…"

Fans flooded the comment section with praise for the nine-year-old.

Even her auntie Samantha Faiers shared her feelings over her niece's achievement. She commented: "Wow xxx so proud. This is amazing!"

Nelly's huge step into fashion comes as she was treated to her own pony named Bambi back in March, ahead of celebrating her 9th birthday in the summer.

Billie wrote on social media at the time: "Welcome to the Shepherd family Bambi. Today we made our little ladies dreams come true."

She added: "Horse riding has become one of the biggest parts of Nelly’s life, she has learnt so much over the past few years and become more confident, and most importantly made the most wonderful friends.

"She loves every part of it! Including mucking out in the freezing cold. I am so proud of her. Watching her fulfil her passion is just the best!

"We can’t wait to watch Nelly and beautiful Bambi make the best memories together."
