Maura Higgins was the cutest child EVER as you'll see in Curtis Pritchard's soppy birthday post

Curtis Pritchard just shared a series of throwback snaps to mark the birth anniversary of his rather fabulous girlfriend, Maura Higgins.

The professional dancer took to Instagram this afternoon and included three adorable childhood snaps in addition to one of him and Maura looking very cosy indeed.

Love Island star Curtis is clearly head over heels for Maura as you can tell from his adorable post.

He even went as far to say that he was very lucky to call the Longford native his girlfriend, glad to see he recognises how great his other half is.

His gushing Instagram caption where of course he made sure to tag Maura Higgins' official account read:

"Happy birthday to this little munchkin @maurahiggins ..... Miss you already and can not wait to see you. You really are truly amazing and beautiful. To see everything you have achieved in the past months is incredible and I'm so lucky to be able to call you my girlfriend. HAPPY BIRTHDAY".

We adore the first photo where it appears that Maura is enjoying a bag of crisps, a girl after our own hearts and indeed the other two photos are equally cute.

This isn't the first time that we've been given an insight into his affectionate nature as Maura previously shared a Whatsapp message from her boyfriend.

After the pair had been separated a while due to work commitments, Curtis was keen to let his girlfriend know just how much he missed her.

He sent her a sweet message which Maura shared on Instagram Stories, keen to let her followers know what a dote her boyfriend is.

It also revealed his nickname for her "button nose" and you can see it in full here.

They are going from strength to strength since the reality show ended back in June and just like today, they regularly share couple snaps and relationship updates via their social media accounts.
