The doting mother-of-four took to Instagram to share a series of pictures with her daughter, saying: ‘Sometimes I forget to tell her about the love I feel for her.’
Writing a lengthy heartfelt caption alongside, Ulrika said that she will ‘endeavour to do better’ and that her love for Martha ‘runs deep’.
The presenter penned: ’17 years ago today, this one was pulled through the sunroof of my belly: Martha Sky Hope. An 8lb bundle of obstinance, wilfulness, righteousness and determination.
‘Social justice courses through her veins; opinion screams wildly from her mouth and rhythm flows from her hips. She’s the whole package and then some. Never have I ever experienced someone like her.

‘Of late, we’ve locked horns a fair bit. It’s been tricky and a landscape I haven’t entirely navigated as well as I should have. But my love for this girl runs deep and we have so many connections and similarities that I never worry about ‘us’.’
Ulrika added that she is here to be a ‘parent’ to Martha and not her ‘friend’ as she celebrated how ‘special’ she is.
The presenter continued: ‘We speak truth to each other and it’s something I value tremendously. I am not here to be her friend. I am here to parent; to love beyond measure and, above all, to support.
‘Sometimes I forget to tell her about the love I feel for her. Sometimes I forget to hug this hedgehog of awesomeness. But I will endeavour to do better.’
Happy family: Ulrika is also a mother to Cameron, 26, Bo, 21, and Malcolm, 13 (pictured together)
Ulrika signed off her post by celebrating Gladys Knight, Kylie Minogue, Carey Mulligan and her sister, who also have birthdays on 28 May.
She concluded: ‘You’re a special one, Moo. And today we celebrate you (and Gladys Knight, Kylie Minogue, Carey Mulligan and your fabulous aunt, my sister @miss.disan.77 ).
‘We’re gonna play @msgladysknight all day and party all night). Love you, Martha Moo.’
