Jeff Brazier has shared a heartwarming message about his two sons as they remembered their mum Jade Goody on Mother’s Day.
Seven years on from their mum’s tragic death, which occurred on Mother’s Day in 2009, Bobby and Freddie paid tribute to Jade.
Taking to his Instagram account, Jeff, who was in a relationship with Jade between 2002 and 2004, shared a photograph of a bouquet of flowers on Jade’s grave in Epping Forest.
The caption read; ‘My respect and admiration for my beautiful brave boys grows stronger every time we do this.’
He added; ‘I’m really grateful they continually choose to remember Jade with such enthusiasm and duty because she would be very proud of herself for being such a great mum and giving them the start in life that she did.’

The Celebrity Big Brother star died from cervical cancer at only 27 years old and her former partner has been spreading awareness of the disease since.
After visiting the cemetery on Sunday, the family then went to Brighton pier – the boys still live in the seaside town – and ‘ate large burgers’.
Jeff, 36, credited the boys with the success of the day, saying; ‘Today went well thanks to the courage and maturity of our boys.’
The two boys, aged 12 and 11, regularly talk about their mum – Jeff tweeted last week that Bobby had dedicated a recent football game to Jade.
He said; ‘So proud of Bobby dedicating his performance to his mum today, he played great & we beat the top of the table team.’
Jade was a much-loved TV personality who entered the spotlight in 2002 after an appearance on the Channel 4 reality show.
She was diagnosed with cervical cancer in 2009 and by February of that year the cancer had metastasized and become terminal.
The Bermondsey star married fellow CBB contestant Jack Tweed on 22nd March 2009 following her relationship with Jeff.
