Gemma Collins took to Instagram to reveal she spent a "lovely day" with her three-year-old "stepson".
The 40-year-old telly regular shared a sweet snap of a sunny autumn day out in the countryside with her boyfriend Rami’s son, Tristan.
The former The Only Way is Essex Star couldn’t stop smiling as she posed for a photo next to Tristan’s pushchair.
Sharing the special picture with her 2.2 million followers, she wrote: "The most lovely day being step mum to a beautiful three year old boy.
"I absolutely LOVE IT getting the steps in it’s so rewarding and just so enjoyable I absolutely love it."

Fans were quick to show their support, even sharing their own experiences of being a step mum.
One said: "Being a step mum is one of the best things in the world, a child can never have too many people to love them… I love my 3 step children more than anything.”
"The fact that his real mum is happy for you to spend time with her son speaks volumes , a blended family,” another wrote.
While a third touched on Gemma’s own desire to become a mother herself soon, saying: "It'll be your turn soon enough gem hang in there babe you'll make an amazing mum."

The reality star’s post comes just days after she revealed her and Rami are considering IVF after struggling to conceive.
Speaking on her podcast, Gemma said: "I really want a baby now.
"I’ve not been using any contraception. I can’t get pregnant so I’m gonna have to be brave now and look into this myself."
Gemma admitted not being able to get pregnant naturally so far had been getting her down: "It feels like sometimes – when’s it gonna happen? Why me?"
When a fan emailed in after finding herself in a similar position to Gemma, the TV star replied: "IVF is not a bad thing honey. Don’t worry. You can still get it and lots of people conceive on IVF."
Gemma and boyfriend Rami rekindled their romance earlier this year and seem happier than ever
Gemma told fans “never to give up on love” after rekindling her romance with on-off boyfriend Rami Hawash earlier this year.
The couple first started dating in 2011 and even got engaged in 2013 when Rami popped the question by hiding a diamond ring in a Christmas pudding.
But the pair split in 2014 and Gemma went on to have a doomed relationship with her TOWIE co-star James Argent, which eventually ended in 2020.
While they were apart Rami welcomed his son Tristan with an ex-partner – but Gemma and Rami are back dating after both finding themselves single again earlier this year.
Now it seems things are getting serious with Gemma making no secret of the fact she wants to try for a baby with Rami.
She said: "I'm ready for a baby. I am going to try next year. I'm really excited about it.
"That'll be the next show I do, Gemma Collins: Making The Baby."
