Ant Anstead Celebrates Daughter Amelie's 18th Birthday with Fun Throwback Photos on Instagram
Ant Anstead was on daddy duty this week when he celebrated his daughter Amelie's birthday. Besides his lengthy tribute, the reality star also included lots of fun images of the teenager.
On Wednesday, Ant Anstead, 42, jumped onto his Instagram account to celebrate someone very dear to him – his daughter Amelie. The teenager was turning eighteen this month.
Ant shared various images of the teenager, including some throwback photos when she was still a young child. Judging by the fun pictures, the pair had a very close relationship.

In the post's caption, Ant revealed his shock that his "little girl" was now 18. He recalled the first time he took her home from the hospital after her birth, knowing he had no idea what he was doing.
The television personality jokingly confessed that his daughter's car seat fell with her because they'd forgotten to strap it in. He admitted that the past eighteen years had flashed by.

However, he confessed that it had been a privilege to watch Amelie becoming the young woman she now was. Using her nickname, Ammo, Ant described her as an inspiration to him and others, adding:
“Your humour, brilliance, talent, energy and above all else kindness is infectious.”
He noted how the teenager always came from a place of kindness. The "Celebrity IOU: Joyride" star said he loved their connection, close relationship, secret handshake, and bond.

He confessed that he was one lucky father before asking Amelie not to change and continue inspiring people. Ant concluded his touching message by declaring his love for the teenager.
On his Instagram Story, Ant shared two side-by-side images of his daughter. One where she was still a young girl wearing a Snow White costume and a more current one where Amelie took part in an obstacle course.
Besides the teenager, the reality star is also a father to sons Archie and Hudson. The latter is his child with his second ex-wife and fellow television personality, Christina Haack of the "Flip or Flop" fame.
