Brooke Warne has celebrated her first birthday without her late father, Shane Warne.
The eldest child of the cricketing legend and ex Simone Callahan was surprised by family, friends and boyfriend Alex Heath when they threw her an early and massive celebration.
Brooke shared a slew of pictures from the evening, starting with a picture of her glamorous outfit - a black-midi dress styled with fluorescent green shoes and a matching bag.

Other pictures included ones of Brooke and Alex posing together, Brooke and her mum Simone and all the guests, including her brother Jackson and sister Summer, enjoying the lavish dinner spread.
Brooke also gave fans a glimpse of the food served at the gathering, including a Caprese salad, lasagne, pasta, bread rolls, parmesan, rocket, and balsamic salad.
"Can't imagine a better person to share celebrating 25 with 🤍 Happy Early birthday to @fajita_heater and I , swipe for the best pic of all time 🤭🕯🤍❤️🌟🌹🌹🌹🌹🌹🌹🌹🌹🌹🌹🌹🌹," she captioned her post, that was swiftly commented on by her nearest and dearest.
Younger brother Jackson shared two red hearts, her mum wrote, "Best day ❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️," and family friend Alex Fevola penned, "Beautiful @brookewarne ❤️."

One fan commented on her likeness to Shane by writing, "You are the split of your dad," and another supported that statement, "Beautiful. Gosh you're definitely your dad's carbon copy… especially his smile!"
Shortly after Shane passed away from a heart attack in March during a holiday in Thailand, Brooke posted a tribute dedicated to her father.
Alongside a sweet picture of her arms around Shane as a child, she penned, "Dad, this doesn't feel real and doesn't make sense that you are not here with us anymore. It doesn't feel right, you were taken away too soon, and life is so cruel."I will forever cherish our final memories together laughing and joking around with each other. We were happy."

She continued to reflect on their relationship, "We were so similar in so many ways, and I always used to joke that I got your genes and about how much that annoyed me! Well now I couldn't be happier and prouder that I have your genes.
"I am lucky and will forever be so proud to call you my Dad forever. I love you to infinity and back, and I will miss you forever."
Brooke's birthday is the second milestone the family has rung in since the famous cricketer's passing.
Jackson threw himself a huge birthday bash for his 23rd, which proved the Warnes will continue living with the same enthusiasm their dad would encourage.
