You may have known her as Izzy Hoyland from Neighbours, or the lead singer of the Rogue Traders, but without a doubt Natalie Bassingthwaighte's biggest accomplishment is being a mum to her children, Harper and Hendrix.
Now, the talented Aussie has shared a tribute to her eldest child on her special day.
"Our beautiful girl #HarperRain. 12 today," Nat wrote. (Image: Instagram)
Sharing a family photo with the birthday girl and her partner Cameron McGlinchey, Nat penned some beautiful words for her daughter.
"Our beautiful girl #HarperRain. 12 today," the singer penned.
"You truly are one of a kind. The most beautiful heart, effervescent and full of sparkly goodness that radiates to all those around you. I mean when did you get so big?? One inch away from matching my height."

The post quickly garnered plenty of support from fans and friends, including the late Olivia Newton-John's niece Tottie Goldsmith who penned: "She's just beautiful 👼."
Others couldn't believe how grown up Harper has become, while also noticing the striking similarities between mother and daughter.
"Wasn't she only just in a little blue dress at your wedding?! Lots of love 😭 ❤️❤️❤️," one user penned.
"Aww, she's your mini @natbassingthwaighte … hb beautiful ❤️," another added.
The tribute comes five weeks after the actor shared a similar post for her son Hendrix as he turned nine.
Posting a photo of the birthday boy all smiles with a bird on his shoulder, the actor wrote: "Those big eyes and teeth. So brave even when you feel unsure x Full of so much empathy for those around you. The World!!! Fears this year! What a year it's been. Covid and floods. A world unfamiliar. Your heart has felt it all.
"You are such a special human Hendrix. Never lose that. Always wanting to learn more and know more. Competitive. Still Sports mad. Soccer, AFL, Tennis. And now Basketball! We love you my boy! Always will through it all! Happy Birthday big boy ❤️."
Amidst the birthday tributes, Nat was kept busy with a project very close to her heart - the Neighbours finale.
