Rachel explained in her caption: ‘Mrs had her 1 year jabs this morning!’
‘I was so focussed on making sure she’d had Calpol and calming a few tears, it’s only just occurred to me the significance of protecting her from diseases that millions will have died from in the past. We’re so lucky! Thank you scientists ❤️’

The mother-of-one recently shared her hopes for her little one to be bilingual as husband Pasha talks to her ‘solely in Russian’.
Rachel said on Good Morning Britain: ‘She’s got teeth, she’s biting us, she’s all about chat chat chat!
‘Pasha is speaking to her solely in Russian and I’m speaking to her in English so we’re hoping she’ll be bilingual.’
The media personality sweetly added: ‘She’s so mobile, she’s crawling and can walk with one hand now.’
Rachel also shared that she will be teaching her daughter mathematics but joked: ‘At the moment, she can bash cups together!’
The adorable family have spent lockdown with the maths whizz’s Russian mother-in-law Galina, whose month-long visit to the UK was extended amid the pandemic.
Blonde beauty Rachel was previously married to Jamie Gilbert, whom she met while studying at Oxford university.
