Lily Collins wishes famous father Phil Collins a happy 71st birthday: ‘I love you!’

Emily in Paris producer-star Lily Collins wished her famous father – eight-time Grammy winner Phil Collins – a happy 71st birthday on Sunday.

‘Happy birthday, Dad. I may no longer fit in your arms or sit comfortably on your shoulders but you continue to hug me tightly when I need it most,’ the 32-year-old Emmy nominee – who boasts 31.7M social media followers – wrote on Instagram.

‘We may not get to spend time together that often but when we are face to face, you really do see me. You may not always believe it but please trust me when I say, no matter how old I get or what life may bring, I will always need you.

‘Whether I’m proudly watching you up on stage, laughing at home together playing trivial pursuit, I’m forever grateful for the moments and memories we share. Especially the ones I now cherish as an adult myself. Thank you for inspiring me and supporting the woman I am today. I love you to the moon and back again.’

Lily is the third eldest of the British belter’s five children from three marriages.

Collins was born in Guildford and spent summers in Switzerland with Phil, but she was primarily raised in Beverly Hills by her American mother Jill Tavelman.

The Lancôme brand ambassador was only six when Collins divorced her 65-year-old mother in 1996 after 12 years of marriage and affairs with Lavinia Lang and his now ex-wife #3 Orianne Cevey.

It’s probably one of the reasons Lily identified so much with her husband of four months, Charlie McDowell, who has three famous parents.

The 38-year-old filmmaker is the son of A Clockwork Orange alum Malcolm McDowell and Oscar winner Mary Steenburgen, who’s now married to Emmy winner Ted Danson.

Last spring, Charlie wrapped his upcoming film Windfall, which he produced with Collins, that streams later this year on Netflix.
