TAMARA’S FAM­ILY CHRISTMAS

Please can we come back as Fifi in our next life?

Heat (UK) - - Celeb Employee of the week -

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
