Australian TV favourite Jessica Rowe has shared a tribute to her daughter Allegra on her 17th birthday.
Taking to Instagram on Thursday, the 53-year-old former Project 10 host celebrated the milestone with a gallery of pictures which featured her oldest child.
In one throwback image, a smiling Jess can be seen holding a toddler-aged Allegra to her cheek during a visit to the beach.
Jessica, who shares Allegra with husband, Channel Nine news presenter Peter Overton, also included a touching message in the story:
‘Where have the years gone… Happy 17th Birthday my darling Allegra,’ she wrote.

‘You are my wish upon a star. The moment you arrived – I looked into your eyes and thought, ”Oh there you are… I’ve been waiting for you…”
‘You teach me so much and I’m so lucky to be your Mumma. Oceans of love my darling girl.’
Jess also shared a glamorous recent shot of her beautiful daughter, who signed with top modelling agency Priscilla’s Models just weeks after her 16th birthday last year.

Jessica is best known for her co-hosting role on Studio 10, which she stepped down from in March 2018 to spend more time with her family.
Jess is married to journalist Peter Overton and the couple share two daughters, Allegra and Giselle.
They first met when Jess was doing work experience at Channel Nine when she was 19.
Jess said Peter was one of the few people who spoke to her during her work experience stint, and they saw each other again years later at the Logies.
‘As we were talking I was thinking, “Why can’t I meet a nice man like this? Why am I not attracting really good, decent people like this beautiful man?”‘ she told Mamamia in May 2018.
