Nadia Forde has posted a touching message in the wake of her mother's death.

The model and singer's mother Berenice Paolozzi passed away on Saturday night after battling lymphoma cancer for several years.

Nadia (26) and her younger brother Stephen were at their mother's bedside during her final moments and she has posted a touching post on Instagram, honouring her mother.

"In the blink of an eye, everything can change," the post reads. "So forgive often and love with all your heart. You may never know when you may not have that chance again."

She and her brother were raised by their grandmother when her parents split up when she was aged seven. Since then they had limited contact - but they were reconciled last summer after the model learned her mother was getting treatment in London for lymphoma cancer.

Meanwhile, the reality star flew to Marbella on Monday evening for her best friend Debbie O'Leary's wedding to rugby player Peter Stringer yesterday. It's reported that she flew to the nuptials with the support of her family.

Ms Paolozzi's funeral takes place tomorrow in Clontarf.
