EastEnders star James Farrar has paid a sweet tribute to his baby daughter on her first birthday.
James, who plays Zack Hudson in the BBC One soap, welcomed his first child with wife Ali last year.
Taking to his Instagram story to reveal the wonderful news at the time, the 35-year-old posted an update on his story of the tot, while tagging his loved ones.
‘Life will never stand still again and nor will I! #bobbinglife,’ he captioned the sweet snap.
One year on, James recently posted a series of pictures and videos on his Instagram of baby Summer’s progress, wishing her a happy birthday.
In a lovely caption, he wrote alongside: ‘Your Mamgu (Grandma), and her health, was the reason we decided to have you; we needed you to experience her strength and her magic. 2 years on from her diagnosis we have her in good health and we have you, 1 years old today!
‘I was on set when I got the call to say “Farrar you better come home”. In the 60 mins it took me to get back Ali was already with the midwives giving birth on the living room sofa. After a few complications, and some answered prayers, our miracle arrived – and our lives haven’t been the same since.’
Continuing on, he added: ‘The gratitude we have for Summer’s grandparents is endless. Especially now Ali is going back to work. It allows us to concentrate on our careers knowing Summer is in safe and inspiring hands. Our sisters and mates who treat Summer likes she’s their own; being able to pass Summer around a pub full of mates makes us proud.
‘And to @aliroff_farrar who not only holds the fort (I haven’t seen Summer for 3 days because of early call times and late wraps) but is teaching our baby that you can be an entrepreneur, mum, wife and pal all at the same time – mindful and present – whilst managing a full house renovation.’
He finished the message with: ‘I won’t get to see you today, and it breaks my heart, but I hope to spend every other birthday with you in years to come. Happy Birthday sweetheart x’
James of course received many messages from his co-stars in the comment section, including some from Louisa Lytton (Ruby Allen) and Danielle Harold (Lola Pearce).
James’ character, Zack, made his arrival to Walford last year.
He is the long-lost brother of Sharon (Letitia Dean), and will find himself in a spot of bother soon when his partner Sam’s (Kim Medcalf) ex turns up!
