Ulrika Jonsson took full advantage of the British weather on Sunday when she donned patterned bikini bottoms to sunbathe in her sprawling backyard.

On Instagram, Ulrika, 53, shared a photo of the lower half of her body stretched out on a recliner while basking in the sun’s rays.

In the background of the blonde bombshell’s post was one of her beloved bulldogs, and the vast grounds of her Oxfordshire home were also visible.

The doting mother also got one of her many tattoos, with the ink visible just below her right hip bone.

Ulrika also captured outdoor furniture in the background of her photo, suggesting her family spent time outside over the warm party weekend.

The mercury hit a maximum of 20C this weekend and the return of the sun brought warm and dry weather to the UK for ten days.

It comes a day after the star celebrated her daughter Martha’s 17th birthday on Friday, when she admitted they’ve been “ pretty locked up ” lately.

The doting mother of four took to Instagram to share a series of photos with her daughter, saying, “Sometimes I forget to tell her about the love I feel for her.”

While writing a long heartfelt caption, Ulrika said she will “do her best to do better” and that her love for Martha “runs deep.”

The presenter wrote: ‘Today 17 years ago this one was pulled from my belly through the sunroof: Martha Sky Hope. An 8lb bundle of Stubbornness, Whimsy, Justice and Determination.

Social justice runs through her veins; opinion screams wildly from her mouth and rhythm flows from her hips. She’s the whole package and then some. Never have I ever met someone like her.

‘Lately we have locked the horns quite a bit. It’s been tricky and a landscape that I haven’t navigated quite as well as I should. But my love for this girl runs deep and we have so many connections and similarities that I never worry about ‘us’.’

Ulrika added that she’s here to be a ‘parent’ to Martha and not her ‘boyfriend’, celebrating how ‘special’ she is.

The presenter continued: “We are telling the truth to each other and I really appreciate that. I’m not here to be her friend. I am here for parents; immeasurably love and especially support.

Sometimes I forget to tell her about the love I feel for her. Sometimes I forget to hug this hedgehog of greatness. But I’ll try to do better. ‘

Ulrika signed off her post by celebrating Gladys Knight, Kylie Minogue, Carey Mulligan and her sister, who also have birthdays on May 28.

She concluded, ‘You are special, Moo. And today we celebrate you (and Gladys Knight, Kylie Minogue, Carey Mulligan and your wonderful aunt, my sister @ miss.disan.77).

‘We’re gonna play @msgladysknight all day and party all night). I love you, Martha Moo. ‘

In the photos, Ulrika posed over the years with her daughter Martha with a photo taken after her birth and another recently of the 17-year-old with a summer fruit birthday cake and a single candle.

Ulrika is also a mom to Cameron, 26, Bo, 21, and Malcolm, 13.

In 2019, the presenter announced her divorce from husband Brian Monet after eleven years of marriage.

Ulrika and Brian get married in 2008 and share a son Malcolm. They started their relationship in 2006.

In 2014, Brian also adopted her daughter Bo from the presenter’s relationship with German hotel owner Markus Kempen.

The father of Ulrika’s son Cameron is John Turnbull, to whom she was married between 1990-1995.

Martha’s father is Lance Gerrard-Wright, Ulrika’s husband from 2003-2005.
