You are amazing!!
‘Five years ago on Mother’s Day 2015 my beautiful daughter was born and now In a time of such sadness and pain in the world, when we realise how fragile life can be I am so grateful to be blessed with the most powerful gift of life.
‘And can’t forget my mummy who is always there for me no matter what you are an angel ( even though you drive me mad) hahaha
Inspired: Just two weeks ago, Cat revealed she’s moved on with a new boyfriend who’s inspired her to write love songs (Cat performing on The Voice)
Just two weeks ago The Voice contestant told MailOnline how her new relationship inspired her to write fresh material – almost five years after she became a mum to Ada, who she shares with the Hollywood actor.
Singer-songwriter Cat said her daughter hopes to follow in her footsteps by competing in the next series of The Voice Kids and she believes Ada could go all the way as she can already ‘stay in tune and hit high notes.’
Cat, who will compete on the ITV show this Saturday in the final battle rounds, said: ‘I definitely write a lot of love songs, especially last year.
‘I find I go through phases when I have inspiration and other times not but last year I entered into a new relationship and that definitely gave me loads of creativity and inspiration.
‘My songs are usually based on love – boring! It inspires me so much, there’s no other feeling like it.’
Speaking about her daughter Ada, who turns five this month, she said: ‘She’s already said she wants to go on The Voice Kids.
‘She’s watched YouTube clips of the kids and asks if she’s a better singer and I tell her she’s amazing but say, ‘She’s probably had more practice than you, you really need to practice.’

Gorgeous: Cat says her four-year-old daughter has her heart set on competing in The Voice Kids and can already ‘stay in tune and hit high notes’
‘I don’t want to be a pushy stage mum but she definitely veers very much towards acting and singing, that’s for sure.
‘She’s got a very husky voice and she can stay in tune and hit high notes, so you never know.
‘She’s actually got the lead part in her stage coach, she’s Jasmine in Aladdin. She got the solo!
‘It’s always amazing to see your child do something that they really love and see them sparkle. Obviously because I sing it’s sweet because she’s like me, my little mini me.
Mini me: Cat says Ada, who’s the youngest of Jude’s five children, ‘veers very much towards acting and singing’ and has already landed the lead role at her performing arts school
Cat Cavelli, real name Catherine Hardman, was 23 when she dated Jude, then 41, who was filming on location in the Czech Republic as he grew close to the aspiring musician.
Jude is also a father to Rafferty, 23, Iris, 19, and Rudy, 17, from his marriage to actress Sadie Frost, 54, who he met when the pair starred together in 1992 film Shopping.
The star, famed for his roles in Captain Marvel, The Holiday and Alfie, shares 10-year-old Sophia with model Samantha Burke and his youngest Ada with The Voice contestant.
Cat gave up her dreams of becoming a singer when she fell pregnant – and after she suffered a damaging knock to her confidence.
But The Voice has given her the chance to build back her self-esteem, with Cat saying: ‘I feel like I’ve started afresh and I’m completely back to myself.’
Let the battle commence: Cat competes against trio Belle Noir on Saturday’s final battle rounds on The Voice after being snapped up by coach Olly Murs
She said: ‘I moved to London when I was 18 to do music and I was writing a lot and performing in a band but then I stopped when I had my daughter.
‘I wanted to take a backseat. There was some stuff that happened which really knocked my confidence.
‘I wasn’t in the best place so concentrated on being a mother and then I tried thinking, maybe I’ll go back and do something else, study but that wasn’t for me.
‘So I started doing music again and I put together my own show. When The Voice came along I thought I’m just going to go for it. Why not? It’s really putting yourself out there.
‘I feel better than before. I feel less nervous and I’m just going for it whatever happens, which I didn’t do when I was younger.’
Impressed: Olly gave Cat a standing ovation when he first saw her perform during the blind auditions – with the singer saying she felt a ‘slight flirtation’ towards the coach
Cat is being mentored on The Voice by coach Olly Murs, 35, who fell for her husky tones during the blind auditions.
And now Cat admits that she chose to work with Olly over rival coach Will.i.am (who also turned for her) because his flirtatiousness put her at ease.
She said: ‘I did feel a slight flirtation with Olly. He’s quite the cheeky chappy. And I’m probably a bit of a flirt – joking, not joking! He’s lovely, I feel comfortable.
‘Although both Will and Olly turned I felt more of a connection to Olly. I felt like I got along with him more or connected to him more. You just get a feeling don’t you?
‘It’s amazing working with Olly. He’s super passionate about the show and really supportive. He likes to get involved, you can ask him whatever. He’s more hands on than you would imagine…’
Talented: Cat gave up her dreams of becoming a singer when she fell pregnant and after she suffered a knock to her confidence but says The Voice has given her a new lease of life
