She's enjoying a sun-soaked winter break with her beloved daughter.

And on Thursday it was time for another idyllic day on the beach in Dubai for Tamara Ecclestone and Sophia, two.

The doting mum looked sensational in a teeny bikini as she ran into the water with her little girl before having some fun with some water pistols.

Tamara, 32, chose a gorgeous blue and white print bikini for her day in the sun, which flaunted her incredible figure.

Her curves were looking toned and tanned, while her enviable abs were also on show.

The mum of one chose a relaxed hair do, styling her brunette locks into two french braids, swept off her face to keep cool.

Despite possessing a body that looks impeccably toned and gym-honed, the busy mum-of-one recently admitted that she doesn't spend any time in the gym.

As far as workouts go, it's running around after Fifi 24/7 and pushing her in the stroller,' Tamara recently told FEMAIL of her very laidback exercise regime.

'As for food, I tend to have porridge for breakfast, wholegrain pasta for lunch and then quinoa and chicken for dinner.'

Tamara also spoke about her relationship with Sophia - who is starting nursery 'very soon'.

And asked whether there are more children in the pipeline now that Sophia is growing up, she coyly hinted: 'Not right now but, eventually, yes.'

Tamara shares Sophia with husband Jay Rutland, 35.

As a doting mother-of-one, Tamara is never afraid to air her views on parenting.

But the Formula 1 heiress found herself at the centre of an unexpected social media storm recently after posting images of herself breastfeeding, as some fans slammed her for oversharing.

Sharing her best piece of advice for other mothers, defiant Tamara said: 'Listen to your heart and your intuition, they are your babies and you know them best.'
