Emmerdale actor Mark Jordan delighted fans by sharing a rare snap of his eldest daughter Polly to mark her milestone birthday.
The soap star smiled widely for the camera as he posed alongside Polly, his partner Laura Norton and their seven month old baby boy, Jesse.
Proud dad Mark paid a gushing tribute to Polly on her birthday, penning in the caption: “My incredible daughter is 21. Her love of her new brother is emotionally inspired.
“My thanks for the beautiful friendship she’s formed with my love @laura_norts is beautiful. Every second of every day, I value the gift I’ve be given to named Dad to Poppy Jordon [sic],” he added with a heart emoji.
Poppy looked gorgeous for her big day in a monochrome polka dot dress and statement necklace.
Laura opted for a cosy purple cardigan which was effortlessly draped off her shoulder as she held onto her sweet young son.
Television star Mark shares daughter Poppy with his ex-wife, Downton Abbey actress Siobhan Finneran.
Back in February, Laura and Mark announced they had welcomed their first child together, as she wrote in an Instagram post: “So, on Friday Jan 29th at 1.30am we managed to bring this little champ into the world.”
“It was the most incredible, surreal experience I have ever had and probably ever will and my tiny mind is blown.
“He is perfect and we’re all so happy to welcome him to the fam. Jesse Jordon we’re all head over heels IN LOVE with you.
“@daddyjordon you were the BEST birthing partner would absolutely not be in one piece without you and @roh_birthcentre are amazing!! All the girls but espesh Amy our midwife who is some sort of super hero.”
Laura and Mark were supposed to be spending 2020 planning their dream wedding, but an impending surprise addition to their family put those plans firmly on hold.
The lovebirds met when Mark joined Emmerdale in 2014, playing Laura’s future brother-in-law Daz Spencer.
