Heather Locklear's only daughter Ava recently celebrated her 23rd birthday, and the actress shared the sweetest Instagram post in honor of her baby girl.


Heather Locklear recently paid tribute to her daughter, Ava Elizbeth Sambora, on her 23rd birthday. The actress went all out as she serenaded her baby girl with sweet words.

In an Instagram post, the proud mom shared a candid shot of her daughter smiling. The picture, which was a tad blurry, saw Ava rocking her platinum blonde locs in a hairstyle that fell across her shoulders.

Locklear accompanied the snapshot with a caption where she described Ava as her favorite person. She concluded by gushing over how much she loves her baby girl. The heartwarming post garnered reactions from fans who flooded the comments section with birthday wishes for Ava. One user wrote:

"Happy Birthday, may all your wishes come true."


Several fans also left comments about the striking resemblance between Locklear and Sambora, who they described as beautiful women. Not only does Ava look like her mom, but the youngster also takes it a notch higher and seems to refer to her famous mom's fashion style sometimes.

Next to the flowers was a pink and white cake baked in commemoration of the milestone.


In May, she shared a post that featured a picture of herself wearing a one-shouldered "Bon Jovi Forever" top with a skeleton and American flag design across it.

The next slide of the post included a throwback photo of Locklear wearing the same shirt. With their long blonde hair and similar facial features, the mother-daughter duo's resemblance could be clearly seen. Captioning the picture, Ava wrote:

"I got it from my mama (Like I literally got this shirt from my mom's closet ?)"


The vintage top held extra meaning for Sambora, whose dad is a famous guitarist, Richie Sambora. He played with the legendary rock band Jon Bovi for thirty years. Locklear and Richie were married for thirteen years between 1994 and 2007. They welcomed Ava, their only child together, in 1997.

Imitating her mom's style is not the only thing the youngster has been up to recently. In May, Ava graduated from Loyola Marymount University in Los Angeles, and Locklear could barely contain her pride.


Taking to Instagram, the actress shared a photo of Ava placed on a bouquet of pink flowers. Next to the flowers was a pink and white cake baked in commemoration of the milestone.

Locklear also shared another post featuring a framed picture of Ava flashing a smile with her graduation cap. In her caption, she congratulated her daughter and added that they were all very proud of her latest achievement. 

Without a doubt, Locklear has enough reasons to be a proud mother, and it appears she would always go all out to show Ava just how much she means to her.
