We simply *can't*...


Days like today, we realise just how quickly time is zooming by.

Remember when Sam Faiers had only just welcomed her teeny tiny baby Paul into the world, bringing with it a hit TV show and that slightly strange but also slightly normal kiss between Paul senior and his mother?!

Guess what, folks… A WHOLE ENTIRE YEAR AGO!

Yup- today, baby Paul is celebrating his very first birthday! We know, we know… we can’t quite believe it either.

Fans have been very quick to wish Paul a happy birthday, with comments reading messages such as ‘Happy birthday you gorgeous boy!! Love seeing you on the TV….you will be a star before you’re 10 with your cuteness xx’ and ‘Can’t believe it’s been a year happy birthday Paul xx’.

Sam also shared a snap of Paul from when he was just a teeny tiny baba, which she has movingly captioned: ‘Happy 1st birthday my beautiful baby. This has been the most amazing time of my life. You are our world. I can’t describe in words my feelings for you. You are he happiest, cuddliest, cutest baby I know’.

Sam continues, ‘Thank you for making us so proud paul. From the moment you was born we haven’t spent a moment apart. We are best friends you make us laugh everyday. Mummy & daddy love you so much’.

Since becoming a mother, Sam has been continually praised by the public for being just so darn ace. Most recently, the public were pretty darn chuffed with the former TOWIE ‘gal for breastfeeding live on TV.

During her recent appearance on This Morning, Sam breastfed her son whilst chatting to Phil and Holly after getting stuck in traffic before arriving at the studio – meaning that she didn’t have time to feed her son beforehand!

Many fans had taken to Twitter to praise Sam, with responses reading messages such as ‘so much respect for Sam feeding live on #thismorning’ and ‘Good on Sam for breastfeeding on live TV’

A very happy birthday to lil’ Paul, we hope his first birthday is absolutely wonderful!
