They may be hauled up in Sydney's extended lockdown, but Emily is a dedicated mother, and she wasn't going to let Covid damper her celebrations.
The Home and Away actor improvised and used her creativity to organise the most glorious, fun, and love-filled birthday for her son Henry, who has turned 6-years-old.
Emily posted a picture to her Instagram of the mother and son duo surrounded by soccer themed balloons and one giant soccer ball cake.

Henry's big smile and triumphant fist to the air prove Emily knocked it out of the park and brought her son much joy.
She captioned the family photo, "Happy 6th birthday my beautiful boy πŸ’™βš½οΈLook at his amazing cake (that has smarties inside!) made by our darling @lauren_e_hamilton πŸ’œ."
Emily also reflected on lockdown and sweetly thanked all the people who helped make Henry feel special.
"A lockdown birthday that was made so special by his school teachers, little friends, Mums sending videos, FaceTime chats with cousins and beautiful family and even happy birthday sung to him by Aunty Lally and family from the front garden! So much love and kindness 🎈thanks to everyone who reached out today πŸ€—," she wrote.
The beauty finished her message with a lighthearted quip that many women in Sydney will relate to right now.
"It made me forget I have nine weeks regrowth πŸ₯³πŸ€¦πŸΌβ€β™€οΈ," she joked.
Emily's friend and co-star Georgie Parker commented an endearing message dedicated to Henry in the comment section.
