Hamish Blake and Zoe Foster Blake share sweet birthday messages as baby Rudy turns one while on holiday in Greece

“Why be none when you can be one.”

Rudy Hazel Blake, l'il sister to the uber-cute Sonny Blake has turned one in style.

Celebrating the year that has positively flown by, Rudy has been snapped smashing cake in the sunshine while on holiday in Greece with her adorable family.

Dad, comedian Hamish Blake took to Instagram to share this sweet snap, captioned with: "That feeling when you know you hands down just completed the best year of your life. Happy Birthday to our laser beam of pure fun!! #OnesTheNewNone #blakemewithyou"

Mum, legendary author, columnist and founder of beauty brand Go-To Skin Care, Zoe Foster-Blake shared this adorable snap of her blue-eyed babe: "Why be none when you can be one. "Happy birthday, girl! You are pure diamonds and curls; we couldn't be happier to be your backup vocalists in life.! #blakemewithyou"

We were already green with envy of little Rudy's lifestyle earlier in the week when Foster-Blake shared this holiday snap while we were wiping frost from our windscreens …

Little Rudy, who's named after Zoe's mother Gertrude, has had a cracking year, and we've been lucky to watch it unfold via the hilariously entertaining social posts shared by her parents with that patented Blake humour.

Speaking with TV Week after the birth of his daughter, Blake knew that he and Foster-Blake were fortunate to have the kind of lifestyle that allowed them to be so present in their children's lives.

"It's the same with anybody – you can't make your life all work or all play," he explains.

"I'm happy we're more on the side of spending quality time with Sonny and his sibling, because
you realise it [time] goes very fast.

"I'm lucky to be in a position where I can take time to be there."

Like all of us, Blake admits that he and Foster-Blake still face learning curves every day.

"We have three years of experience under our belts now," he says. "We'll probably trick ourselves into thinking we know what we're doing and then make the same mistakes all over again. But I think that's just parenthood."
