“I know in my heart you will be dancing your socks off in another realm, showing them all how a celebration is done!

“But in the meantime, here on Earth, we miss you so desperately!

“However, I know you would want us to use our energy to celebrate all things you instead!

"So, today, we raise a glass to a true one off, a go getter, a gentle giant, an adventurer, a lover of life and someone who showed us all how to truly live.

"Here’s to you baby! I know you are with me everyday and I continue to try and do you proud.

"We all love you and will forever. Until we meet again Dimples.”

The emotional message was accompanied by a video montage of photos from LJ’s life with the on-screen caption: “Happy 32nd Birthday. Our angel in the sky.”

The heartfelt post received a wave of support from fans and friends who have been following Martine’s journey as she continues to share snippets from her experience with grief.

“He will always be in your heart,” said one user.

“I’m so sorry. Sending you and your family love today,” wrote another.

Others said they would be joining in on the celebration of LJ’s life, with one person writing: “Lovely memories. Sending you, Jack and Raffy lots of love. Such a difficult day. I will certainly be raising a glass to LJ this evening. A very special person. Xxx.”

Martine announced in October 2022 that LJ, short for Laurence John, passed away at just 31.

At the time, the star shared that there was "no medical explanation" behind his passing but the family was having to accept that "nothing will bring our boy back to us".
