TAMARA’S FAMILY CHRISTMAS
Please can we come back as Fifi in our next life?
If there’s one person we’d like to be this Christmas, it’s Sophia Ecclestonerutland. Nicknamed Fifi, the three-year-old daughter of billionaire heiress Tamara Ecclestone and her businessman husband Jay lives the life all year round. But when it comes to the festive season, her parents – especially Tamara – go all out.
“I don’t really have a budget when it comes to Christmas, but Fifi is my only baby and Christmas is all about kids, so it’s hard not to go OTT,” she confesses to heat. “Jay tries to rein me in, but that doesn’t always work. We don’t want to spoil her but it’s really hard not to.
“I’ve already done my shopping and gone way overboard as I always do, but I love giving presents and it makes me happy.” If you want to throw any presents our way to make you even happier Tamara, we won’t mind…
heat was invited to chat to the 33 year old at her £70m house (we particularly liked the diamond-encrusted unicorn seat in the hallway) to celebrate the success of her new reality show Tamara’s World, with a tea party in her ultra-decadent dining room. The family were busy preparing for Christmas, and Tamara tells us they’ll be spending it at her sister Petra’s house in LA – via a trip to New York to buy last-minute gifts.
But, for now, she’s enjoying the countdown at their 57-room London mansion – with the help of a jumbo-sized advent calendar for her and Fifi. “This is a tradition that Jay started and I love it,” she gushes. “Each day, there’s a present in there for both me and Fifi, which he’s chosen himself. I also take her to about a million Santa Clauses. The one at Westfield is our favourite as it’s quite interactive.”
Although Fifi – who was kept entertained by a real-life Elsa from Frozen during the tea party – will be spoilt by Santa, Tamara will make sure she knows how lucky she is.
“I’ll make her have a clear-out of her toys before she gets new ones,” she explains. “We’ll give those toys to charity as I want her to know that not every child is as fortunate as her.” n
Tamara’s World airs on Wednesday, ITVBE, 9pm
