‘Happy birthday my dear. So proud to be your father and so excited for what the future holds for you,” he added.

Referring to her love of horses, he finished: ‘The stirrups of the world are at your feet!! All my love xx.’

Estella’s mother Collette Dinnigan spoke about co-parenting with Richard to Daily Mail Australia as early as 2015.

“I think the most important thing for all children is to know that both parents love them and that they are a priority in each of our lives, and they are,” Collette said.

“There’s no right or wrong way, as long as your priorities are right.”

The collapse of Collette and Richard’s relationship made headlines in 2004 when the Sydney Morning Herald reported that in the wake of their “ever irreconcilable relationship,” Paddington’s $4.1 million dollar home was transferred to Dinnigan.

Richard is now in a relationship with Nicola Dale.

“I think the most important thing for all children is to know that both parents love them and that they are a priority in each of our lives, and they are,” Collette said previously.

They were caught kissing by the paparazzi in June 2020 after being introduced to each other at a party by mutual friend Ben Fordham.

The couple currently lives in Sydney with Nicola’s daughter Gabriella and Richard’s actor son Christian.

The couple regularly sparks speculation that they could tie the knot.
