The mother of Harper and Hendrix is without a doubt Natalie Bassingthwaighte’s greatest accomplishment. You may have known her as Izzy Hoyland from Neighbours or as the lead singer of the Rogue Traders.
On her special day, the gifted Australian has since posted a tribute to her oldest child.
As the birthday girl and her partner Cameron McGlinchey posed for a family portrait, Nat wrote some heartfelt tributes for her daughter.
“Our lovely girl, Harper Rain. 12 today,” the musician wrote.
“You genuinely stand out from the crowd. The most gorgeous heart, bubbly and filled of sparkling goodness that spreads to everyone in your vicinity. When exactly did you grow to be so big? Just an inch short of matching my height.
Fans and friends swiftly expressed their support for the tweet, with Tottie Goldsmith, the late Olivia Newton-niece, John’s writing: “She’s just gorgeous.”
Others were astounded by how mature Harper had grown and noted the strong parallels between her mother and daughter.
“Wasn’t she just at your wedding in a tiny blue dress? Huge amounts of love,” one user wrote.
She’s like your little sister, Nat Bassingthwaighte. hb wonderful,” a second chimed in.
It’s been five weeks since the actor posted a comparable message in honour of her son Hendrix, who turned nine.
The actor posted a picture of the birthday child wearing a bird on his shoulder and captioned it, “Those enormous eyes and teeth. So courageous even when you are uncertain x having a great deal of empathy for individuals around you. The globe! this year’s fears It’s been quite a year. Floods and pollution. a strange environment. It’s all been felt in your heart. Hendrix, you are such a unique person. Never let go of that. always seeking to learn and understand more. Competitive. Sports-crazy remains. Tennis, soccer, and AFL. Basketball will follow. My boy, we adore you! All the while, always will! “Big boy, happy birthday.”
While there were birthday tributes, Nat was kept busy working on the Neighbours finale, a project that was very important to her.
The actress, reprising her role as Izzy Hoyland, had a major role in the soap opera’s eagerly awaited last episode.
Nat displayed a cast photo to signify the conclusion of an era as it all came to an end.
I feel so honoured to have learned my craft right here with all of you guiding me, @neighbors,” she wrote.
“And to be asked back to commemorate it by bringing Izzy back to the screen to close this magnificent chapter in television history was such a delight and a moment I will always treasure. “Taking a look back through the years.”
