The TOWIE starlet was not in the snap, but also seemed in great spirits as she captioned the image: 'A much more successful trip to see Father Christmas this year.'
However, the post attracted some negative attention as one fan asked: 'I know this might sound ridiculous but are they fake eyelashes?' whilst another pondered: 'Have they put mascara on this little girl? Haha.'
But her fans were quick to leap to her defence as they pointed out that Nelly has always been blessed with thick, long eyelashes.
'Do people seriously think she's putting mascara on her young daughter? There was a photo of her asleep recently and u can see her eyelashes are naturally long and dark.. people need to get a grip ffs,' one fan pointed out.
