Holly Willoughby posts rare pic of son Chester and Chelsea cake as she reveals football rivalry with Arsenal fan husband

HOLLY Willoughby revealed the football rivalry in her household as she shared a rare photo of her son Chester posing with a Chelsea FC birthday cake.

The 39-year-old star's youngest turns six today, and the presenter confessed his footie allegiance will be "killing" her Arsenal supporter husband Dan Baldwin.


Taking to her Instagram page this morning, Holly shared a snap of her little boy gazing at his cake.

In the photo, Chester is reaching over to one of the star decorations on the treat, which is adorned with Chelsea FC logos.

There is also a blue icing football shirt with Chester's name on it, as well as the number six.

In the snap's caption, Holly credited Frank Lampard for her son's obsession, writing: "If anyone knows my @arsenal loving husband you’ll know how much this Cake for Chester's birthday is killing him… 🤦🏼‍♀️ I blame you entirely @franklampard 🤪…

"However that’s our boy all over… marching to the beat of his own drum, spreading absolute joy wherever he goes … We love you so very much Chester Chops… how is my beautiful baby 6 already! 💙"

Footballer Frank was thrilled by the shout-out, commenting: "Happy Birthday Chester my little Chelsea friend 💙💙!

"The boy just has amazing taste in his football teams👏. Next stop a Chelsea cake for Dan on his birthday and my work is done 😀. Hope he has a great day. X"

Holly has indulged Dan's support for Arsenal so much in the past that she previously honoured the club's former manager Arsene Wenger at an Arsenal event, however, she may now have to split her loyalty.


The star also shares 11-year-old Harry, and nine-year-old Belle with Dan – and it has been a cake-filled weekend for the family.

On Sunday, the blonde beauty unveiled a homemade cake she'd baked for a "dear friend's" birthday.

Holly proved to have impressive skills in the kitchen after whipping together a mouth-watering rainbow sponge cake that was decorated to look like the moon.

She covered the sponge in white icing and added chocolate buttons to look like craters.


The This Morning presenter shakily wrote 'Moon' in icing, and added a Lego man holding an American flag with the birthday boy's face on it.

Chocolate stars patterned the border, and another photo of the cut cake revealed that Holly's rainbow efforts had paid off.

Green, yellow, red, and blue sponge was stacked on top of each other, with the busy mum-of-three completing the space effect with a rocket candle.

She proudly captioned the post at the time: "Cake complete! Happy birthday to my dear friend Moon Man… love ya! 🚀 🌙 🎂 🌈 ✨🌕🥂🍾🍰❤️"
