EASTENDERS star Jacqueline Jossa has shared some rare snaps of herself and her stepson Teddy in celebration of his 10th birthday.

Jacqueline, who is reprising her role in the BBC soap as Lauren Branning, doesn’t usually post pictures of her husband’s son on social media out of “respect”.

But with the youngster marking a milestone birthday, the actress has relented and treated fans to some gorgeous photos.

The snaps were taken during various holidays and days out and they also feature Jacqueline and hubby Dan Osborne’s daughters Ella and Mia.

Writing on Instagram, 31-year-old Jacqueline said: “10 years old TODAY🎉.

“Happy birthday Teddy! You special little (not so little) boy! Love you loads and loads!! Hope you have the best day!”

Jacqueline’s husband, former Towie star Dan, shares Teddy with his ex-girlfriend Megan Tomlin.

Teddy was born in December 2013. Jacqueline and Dan welcomed their daughter Ella in February 2015.

The couple married in 2017 and Jacquline gave birth to their youngest child, Mia, the following year.

Jacqueline has never shied away from sharing pictures and videos of her daughters on social media, but she rarely posts snaps of Teddy.

She previously explained in a fan Q&A that she takes the stance out of “respect” for his mum Megan.

“Teddy is Daniel’s son, my step-son,” Jacqueline said in the live stream.

“I don’t post him on here much in respect. We are super close and like best pals.

“He has a mummy so I don’t over step but I’m like, you know, the class clown that makes slime and cleans up and has food and drink on tap.”

Meanwhile, it was confirmed by The Sun On Sunday in September that Jacqueline is making an explosive return to Albert Square.

She is reprising her role of Lauren five years after leaving EastEnders.

The show favourite made a brief comeback last December for soap legend Dot Cotton’s funeral and also an unannounced guest appearance in June.  

Jacqueline said: “I’m really excited. It’s such an amazing time to be back as there is so much buzz around EastEnders at the moment. I’ve been watching and loving it like a fan.

“Walford holds a special place in my heart, so it really does feel like coming home.”
