The former glamour model rocked a mint green tee and grey jogging bottoms as she cosied up to her mum, who was told to shield herself at the start of the pandemic by doctors, due to her condition.

Katie styled her luscious ombré locks in a relaxed wave, and wore her signature full coverage make-up look.

Her sister Sophie rocked a grey jumper while Amy sported a short sleeved top in a strawberry hue and wrapped her arm around her two daughters.

Katie captioned the delightful image on her social media: ‘Wooo past COVID test had made me able to spend the day with to me the best mum anybody could wish for . Happy birthday mum ❤️❤️’.  

What is idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis? 

  • Idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis (IPF) is a condition that causes the build-up of scar tissue in the lungs
  • It can lead to shortness of breath and eventual respiratory failure, and has been branded the ‘silent killer.’
  • The condition’s early symptoms are often missed or confused with a common cold or flu
  • IPF currently has no cure

 

When Amy was first diagnosed with IPF, she was given a three to five year life expectancy by doctors.

Katie reflected on the shocking news on Loose Women last year and said: ‘I couldn’t cope and when you hear “terminal” you think she’s not gone long left.’ 

Amy discussed her wellbeing during the same interview, and responded: ‘I’m not too bad.

‘I went for tests this week with the transplant team, they keep an eye on me, my lung function tests have dropped a little bit but that’s to be expected with what I have got because it is a progressive illness.

‘But they do all the tests on the other organs in your body to prepare you for when they think you need a transplant – I’m not yet [on the transplant list] – and what they do is that they look at everything to make sure you can cope with it, your heart, liver and your kidneys and all that, and they are still 100 percent, they are fine.

‘So at the moment they go, “You are to healthy, go and enjoy yourself.”‘
