Ecclestone marks Sophia's birthday

Tamara Ecclestone celebrated her daughter's "milestone" first birthday with a lavish party including a four-foot cake, dozens of flowers and two miniature ponies.

The model and her husband, property developer Jay Rutland, even decorated the pink party marquee with a giant portrait of daughter Sophia and a large number 1 with dozens of pale-pink roses.

Tamara told Hello! Magazine:"We got her a Cavalier King Charles spaniel called Lady and a Build-a-Bear, which Jay and I recorded our voices in, so she can keep it forever."

She added: "I just think it's nice for a girl to have a memory of a fairy princess party. One is such an incredible milestone."

Also at the party, where children were entertained by a zebra foal, three lambs and two miniature Shetland ponies, was Tamara's father Bernie Ecclestone.

The Formula 1 boss, who is set to become a grandfather again when his daughter Petra gives birth, said: "I'm proud of my daughters and what beautiful grand-daughters they have produced. And we are soon to be more. We are lucky."
