Jade's boys Bobby and Freddie are growing up nicely, seven years on from their mum's tragic death

Mother’s Day is always a poignant occasion for Jade Goody’s sons, given that it was the day the star passed away in 2009, and this year they marked the day in a special manner.

Dad Jeff Brazier released two new pictures of Bobby, 12, and Freddie, 11, to a Jade memorial page on Facebook and it shows how much they’ve grown.

‘I have spoken to Jeff (the boys dad) and he has given me his permission to share with you a recent picture of the boys and with it being Mother’s Day, it seemed the perfect time,’ the page administrator wrote.

‘Jade would be so proud of them both and I am sure you will agree they are both beautiful young men. Thank you Jeff xx’

The boys certainly look very smart in the new photos and fans of Jade were thrilled to see them.

‘They are both turning into beautiful handsome young lads . Sending hugs to them and thank you Jeff for sharing their pictures xx,’ one wrote.

Another commented: ‘Such handsome boys. Jade would be so proud as I am sure Jeff is.’

Jeff, who was in a relationship with Jade from 2002 to 2004, revealed on Twitter that he and his sons had been remembering Jade on Mother’s Day in a lovely way.

‘Paid our respects, had fun on pier & ate large burgers. Today went well thanks to the courage & maturity of our boys,’ Jeff, 36, captioned two photos from the outing.

It’s approaching the seventh anniversary of Big Brother star Jade’s death from cervical cancer and it’s clear that her memory is still very much kept alive by Bobby and Freddie.

Jeff spoke of his pride yesterday when Bobby paid a moving tribute to the late star.

‘So proud of Bobby dedicating his performance to his mum today, he played great & we beat the top of the table team. #Strength & #Love,’ he Tweeted.
