Actress Jackie Forster took to social media to celebrate the birthday of her only daughter, Caleigh Simone.

In an Instagram post on Monday, September 20, Jackie shared her birthday greetings for her daughter as the latter turned 11.

"A young woman of substance and a heart of GOLD. When I see her beauty it’s ALL of her. God has blessed us with such an amazing & loving little lady. What more can a mama ask for in a daughter? Watching her grow up and so gifted is one of life’s greatest blessings I am eternally grateful to our Lord," she said.


"Praying for continued health and happiness for her always! Happy 11th birthday to our sunshine girl!" she added.

Caleigh is Jackie's second child with her husband, Dutch businessman Michel Franken. They have two other kids, Jared and Yohan.

In 2014, at the young age of 3, Caleigh was diagnosed with leukemia. She was eventually declared cancer-free in February 2016.

Previously, Jackie shared that Caleigh, who loves to sing and dance, had expressed her interest to follow in her footsteps in show business.

“She really wants to try showbiz," she said. "She was sick before. That took two-and-a-half years of our lives. We lived in the hospital practically."

“She’s starting to get back into school and making friends. I feel like she should enjoy that first. But if something comes and it’s meant to be, as long as she will not easily get tired, she can do it," she added.
