Tamara Ecclestone still breastfeeding 21-month-old daughter

Tamara Ecclestone is still breastfeeding her 21-month-old daughter.

The 31-year-old socialite is following in her mother Slavica Ecclestone's footsteps by nursing her daughter Sophia, three months shy of her second birthday, and as a result she doesn't like to leave her with anyone else at night.

She said: "I'm still feeding her so if she needs to be fed I need to be there.

"My mum was like that until we were old enough to understand, and even then she'd only leave us with family. I guess it's just the way I am."

The brunette star admits has to limit date nights with husband Jay Rutland at home following the birth of their daughter because she prefers to be with the youngster in the evenings.

She explained to new! magazine: "I don't feel comfortable leaving Sophia with anyone in the evenings, and Jay understands how hands-on I am.

"So long as we do get our time together, he doesn't mind if we're in the house with a takeaway. It's still just us.

"If she wakes in the night I want to be there for her."
