Phoebe also posed with her own daughter, Poppy, four, as she reflected on being both a mother and a daughter. 

She wrote in a lengthy caption: ‘On my mum’s 60th I wanted to ponder the legacy of a mother. My mothers’ love is a sacred place… it’s always warm, nurturing, safe… it has always been ‘home’. No matter my actual location.  

‘Being a mother now, I know raising any child is a gift… but I’ve found raising a daughter to be delicate, yet filled with fire.’

She went on: ‘As much as we desperately love ALL of our children, we fight for our daughters. We fight for our daughters’ daughters. so that their lives might be even marginally richer, more equal, more filled with possibility, and bigger than our own. 

‘There’s a generational handover – I can feel it now that I am shaping my own little girl, one day to be, woman – to do this, we lean on the teachings of those before us and we learn. 

‘Then instead of remaining static, we continue moving forwards and pushing upwards – for them… For Poppy.’

Phoebe concluded:  ‘To my mum: your 60 years on this planet have been the greatest gift imaginable , not only did you give your three girls life but you fought for me. And us. Sisters… We love you.

‘One day it will be up to us, and your three daughters and their daughters’ daughters, and their beautiful equally treasured sons, will carry your legacy of love and hard work for generations to come. Promise.’ 

Phoebe also has a son, Billy, two, with ex-husband Sam Burgess.
