Georgia Love announced her engagement to beau Lee Elliott last week.

And while The Bachelorette star is no doubt over the moon to finally be calling Lee her fiancé, it’s also an incredibly bittersweet time for Georgia, given she is unable to celebrate the news with her late mother, Belinda – who passed away from pancreatic cancer in 2016.

In honour of what would have been her beloved mum’s 63’rd birthday, the Ten star took to Instagram to share a moving post.

“Happy birthday Maman 💜 I miss you every single day, but this week has been particularly tough,” Love wrote alongside a picture of Belinda enjoying a cocktail.

“You would have loved seeing me engaged so much, I just have to trust you’re up there having at least this many drinks to celebrate! ❤️💔”

And we bet Belinda is no doubt beaming down on Georgia and Lee – especially given the fact that last week, Lee revealed he proposed to Georgia in the most romantic way.

Back in May, Georgia took part in the Pancare Foundation’s first Sydney-based Walk For Hope event – walking 5km in memory of Belinda.

“I still catch myself calling or messaging her,” Georgia told the Daily Telegraph at the time.

“It’s really hard to come to terms with — watching (mum) go through all of that and how quickly she went downhill.
