RTÉ star Amanda Byram has shared a rare snap with her “amazing” mum to mark her 73rd birthday.

The presenter took to Instagram today to pay tribute to her mum Betty on her big day with some heartwarming photos.

In the post, Amanda referenced Betty’s new role as a grandmother after the former Total Wipeout host welcomed her first child with husband Julian Okines last month – a baby boy named Phoenix.

She shared a series of snaps with her 73,100 followers, including a photo of the duo posing together on the beach.

Amanda looked stunning as she cradled her baby bump in a white bikini with a black leaf print, while Betty opted for a high-waisted snake print look.

Next, the 48-year-old posted a throwback photo of her and her mum from back in her toddler days.

The final picture showed Betty grinning as she pushed baby Phoenix along in a pram by the sea.

Captioning the post, Amanda wrote: “HAPPY BIRTHDAY to the MOST amazing mummy and grandmother, in the world.

“I am forever in awe of you, your endless, sage advice, your eternal patience and your mind blowing physical and mental strength. Plus I hope I look as good as you when I’m your age!! #thisis73”

She added the hashtags: “#happybirthdaymummy #birthdaygirl #celebrate #love #mummy #grandmother #glamgran #bettybyram”

Fans and friends flocked to the comments section to compliment the mother-daughter duo and wish Betty a happy birthday.

One follower said: “Aw Happy Birthday to your Mum. Gorgeous picture. Have lovely few days together”

TV and radio presenter Gaby Roslin wrote: “Happy birthday to your lovely mummy”

And broadcaster Maia Dunphy and English presenter Fearne Cotton each commented a series of red heart emojis, while a family friend added: “Happiest of birthdays to Beautiful Betty Bear. Enjoy every previous moment together! I wish I was there for a giggle”
