Sophie’s mother Janet posted the rare insight into their family life as she doted on her eldest child on the special occasion.
Janet captioned the post: ‘Happiest of birthdays to my darling first born (with her five borns).’
The mother-of-five shares sons Sonny, 18, Kit, 13, Ray, 10, Jesse, six, and Mickey, three, with husband Richard Jones, 41.
Pop star Sophie and musician Richard got married in Italy in 2005, three years after they first met.
The mother-of-five got candid about motherhood exhaustion but admitted that she may have a sixth child and gushed over ‘family chaos.’
Speaking on the Lockdown Parenting Hell podcast, Sophie explained: ‘If I hadn’t had five I think I would have just had one. It was all or nothing.’

Discussing raising five children, the Murder On The Dancefloor songstress confessed: ‘I think I am so close to being dead with how tiring it is.’
Asked if she plans on having more children, Sophie mused: ‘It is tricky. My youngest is nearly three. So I am at that point when they’d normally be another one.
‘But I am 42 so it’s probably time to just watch them grow up now. It’s hard though. Tricky. I am not one of those people who can form the sentence: ‘I am done’ – I’ve never been able to form the sentence. It is like my mouth goes… [silent].’
