In the lengthy caption Danniella penned: ‘We are the same inside our hearts, we both share our head strong, sensitive ways. We have romantic magical gypsy style souls. 

‘In a way I’m glad I made the mistakes that I did. Because of the pain and bad choices and wrong turns I’ve endured I see a bigger, deeper layer to life’s adventure in front of her.

‘And without her ever seeing a flicker of a flame I will make sure no one darkens her way. She was born to shine.’

The doting mother concluded: ‘Love you my darling. Have a fabulous Friday. Love mum xxx.”

The post comes after Jodie revealed she ‘preferred’ her years in a state school over private education, where she struggled to relate to her peers who weren’t as ‘down to earth’.

The model, who lived with the EastEnders star, and her brother Kai, 25, in sheltered accommodation in 2014, claimed her classmates ‘looked down’ on those who ‘didn’t have money’ while her own strong morals made her put friendships first.

Speaking exclusively to MailOnline at the VIP Celeb MMA Party in London, she admitted it had been ‘crazy’ living under the spotlight of her famous parent which saw her spend her childhood living between California and the UK.

She said: ‘It’s been crazy. There are highs and lows of every industry you’re in whether it’s the spotlight or whether it’s your mum being a dinner lady or something. 

‘I’ve experienced a lot at the age of 21. I’ve lived in California, I’ve been to a private school, I’ve been to a state school but I actually really preferred it.’

The celebrity offspring, whose dad Kevin Jenkins was married to Danniella between 2001 and 2014, credited her ‘down-to-earth’ attitude to the working class background of her family.

She continued: ‘It was just normal people. Where my background… my dad is from Peckham and my mum is obviously local to Essex. I’m not a very posh person, I wouldn’t say common but I’m quite down to earth.

‘They were more like my people, I didn’t care if you had money or not. If you were my friend, you were my friend.

‘If you had food stamps or if your mum brought you in McDonalds for lunch or something more expensive, I wouldn’t care because my friends were my friends.

‘I think private school lacked that a little bit. Everyone looked down on people who didn’t have money.’
