TAMZIN Outhwaite marked four years with boyfriend Tom Child by sharing a series of rare photos on Instagram.
The 50-year-old actress added a lengthy tribute to Tom, 30, alongside the snaps, calling him a "surprise" in her life.
She wrote: "My beautiful partner in crime, my best friend, lover and surprise in life. Thank you for going with it and allowing our love to blossom against all odds.
"The last 4 years has provided me with a lifetime of love that I didn’t know existed. Thank you for being a wonderful lover and even better step dude."
Tamzin finished her post with a series of hashtags, including #fitANDfunny.
Tom also celebrated with his own Instagram tribute, posting snaps of him and Tamzin on different holidays. He wrote: "4 years of having the privilege to call @glamzin my love, my soul, my best mate and my Co adventurer! My Queen!"
Former EastEnders star Tamzin is mum to daughters Florence, 13, and nine-year-old Marnie, who she shares with ex-husband Tom Ellis. She and Tom got divorced in 2013 after he confessed to cheating.
Tamzin has been open in the past about boyfriend Tom's great relationship with her children and praised him for stepping up to the role.
She said: "It takes a really special human to come in as a younger step dad with two young girls.
"To be able to sort of politely back me up with them and stay stuff like, "You can't speak to your mum like that" and sometimes he wants to get more involved and sometimes the girls would just want to be with him.
"They just adore him and sometimes they absolutely roast him. Well, we have a house full of hormones at the moment, with myself and my [oldest] girl, so the hashtag here is prayfortom."
