Jet-setter Tamara gets baby daughter Sophia her own passport

GLOBE-trotter Tamara Ecclestone has got her newborn baby daughter Sophia her own passport.

The 29-year-old, who gave birth this month, told Hello! Magazine (inset): "When we had her passport photo taken – she'll be travelling abroad when she's older – her eyes were wide open."

Ecclestone, the daughter of Formula One boss Bernie, has created a lavish nursery for her daughter at the west London home she shares with husband Jay Rutland, complete with a circular white crib shipped from Los Angeles.

She said: "Motherhood is the best thing that's ever happened to me, and I'm enjoying every minute of it.

"I feel born to be a mother. Although I've always wanted children, I've never felt that intensely before. But Sophia has turned my world upside down in an amazing way and I've never been happier. Having a family with Jay is just perfect.

"When Sophia let out a cry (at birth), I was so relieved. My greatest fear was we wouldn't hear anything.

"I held her first and it was such an amazing feeling. Jay and I had wondered what she would look like. She was born with loads of dark hair and stunning blue eyes."
