Georgia Love has shared a tear-jerking tribute to her late mother Belinda, nearly six years after she sadly passed away.

On Thursday, the former Bachelorette took to Instagram to share a sweet photo of Belinda taken in the French Riviera.

“September 8, 2016. Your last birthday in your favourite place. Forever 60, forever missed, never any easier 💔” Georgia penned, marking six years since their mother-daughter trip to Europe.

Belinda passed away after a six-month battle with pancreatic cancer in 2016, just days after the Bachelorette finale, where Georgia picked Lee Elliott, aired.

“It was really hard on him, and it was really hard on our relationship,” Georgia said of Lee to Stacey June and Kristie Mercer for The Thinkergirls Pod Channel. “We had a very rocky first six months, and I’m not afraid to say that.”

In a chat with Now To Love in May this year, the journalist said felt her mum’s absence more than ever.

“I’ve been in a really bad place mentally the last six months or so, and I’ve never wanted my mum more than now,” she said.

Having dealt with the COVID-19 pandemic, personal hardships and media scandals, Georgia often taps into memories of her “cheerleader” mum to get through.

“I always hear her in my mind saying, ‘stick to your guns, baby. You know what you’re doing and don’t let the bastards get you down’,” she said.

Georgia has faced intense backlash this year and had to issue an apology after she posted an Instagram story of a cat sitting on the window seal of an Asian restaurant with the caption, “Shop attendant or lunch?!”

The video was quickly deemed offensive, and as a result, her employers at Seven News Melbourne moved her to behind the scenes.

“Earlier, I posed a video of a cat in a restaurant window. I meant for this to be a joke about an animal being in a restaurant at lunch service time,” she wrote in her apology.

“I meant absolutely no insinuation about the type of animal nor the type of restaurant, but I see that my post did not come across like that and was offensive.”
