Tamara Ecclestone is loving every minute spent watching her adorable six-month-old Sophia grow up.

The eldest daughter of Bernie Ecclestone took to Instagram to share a photo of her little darling tucking into her baby food after a session in the pool.

"Hungry girl after swimming lesson," Tamara, 30, captioned the snap of Sophia with a mouth full of food.

The Formula One heiress posted another collage of her daughter having a whale of a time – frolicking in her ball pen, exploring her inflatable jungle set and lounging back on the swings. "Today we are mainly playing," wrote Tamara.

The photos provided a glimpse into Tamara and Sophia's mother-daughter time, which the businesswoman has elaborated on in an interview with HELLO! magazine out this week.

Long gone are the times when Tamara would stay out late and have her hair done every day.



Tamara Ecclestone: 'I do absolutely everything with Sophia'


"I'm totally exhausted all the time, but I don't care because it's a happy exhaustion," Tamara told HELLO! magazine. "I'm not drinking or having coffee and I'm being so healthy for Sophia. I'm sorry, but I'm completely obsessed with Sophia. I love her so much I'm like a crazy woman.

"I've never felt like this before. I feel like a completely different person to the girl I used to be and I'm so much happier. I've never been this happy in my life."

While Tamara shares a £60million Kensington home with her property developer husband Jay Rutland, the television personality doesn't employ a nanny.

"People think I have everyone doing everything for me," she said. "I don't. We don't have a cook, I cook. We don't have a nanny, we have me. I do absolutely everything with Sophia."



Tamara Ecclestone: 'I think I'll be the one who'll be really strict about boyfriends – even more than Jay'


The supermum has already organised a few short-term activities for her daughter, including a trip to see Father Christmas at Harrods.

As for her long-term aspirations for Sophia, Tamara added: "I want her to go to a school in London like I did. I want to be there for her, take her to school and pick her up, like Mum did for me and my sister.

"I just want her to be happy. I think I'll be the one who'll be really strict about boyfriends – even more than Jay. I can't imagine letting her out of my sight. But more than anything, I just want her to be really, really happy."
