Celia Walden wrapped her arm around a personalised cushion of her husband Piers Morgan‘s face on Monday while sunbathing.
The journalist and author, 45, said the amusing item was her ‘favourite pillow,’ as she uploaded the snap to social media, a day before her husband’s 56th birthday.
She has stood by Piers’ side – who she tied the knot with in 2010 – following his dramatic exit from Good Morning Britain this month in relation to his comments about Meghan Markle and her explosive interview with Oprah Winfrey.

While sporting a white tee and tinted shades, Celia relaxed on the grass under the glorious British sunshine alongside the printed cushion of a jovial Piers.
She said in the accompanying Instagram caption: ‘Nice little spot of sunbathing with my favourite pillow’.
Earlier in March, Piers left GMB after saying he ‘didn’t believe a word’ of Meghan’s ‘truth’ on racism and the Royals during her bombshell Oprah interview.
The outspoken TV host quit the daytime series after he insisted he ‘didn’t believe a word’ of her account of suffering suicidal thoughts and experiencing racism at the hands of the Royal Family.

Piers then walked off set after a fierce debate with Alex Beresford, in which the weather presenter accused Piers of unfairly ‘trashing’ Meghan, 39, and branded him ‘diabolical’.
When Piers walked off screen, Alex, 40, continued: ‘I’m sorry but Piers just spouts off on a regular basis and we have to sit there and listen.’
Piers, who refused to apologise, later announced his resignation and tweeted his thanks to the GMB team, praising them for their ‘hard work and dedication’ that led to them beating their main breakfast TV rival.
And the presenter shared his own reflections on the events of that fateful week in a piece for the Mail On Sunday last weekend.

Piers called Alex ‘GMB’s occasional stand-in weatherman’ and ‘uptight’ in the telling account, adding that the presenter hasn’t messaged him since his exit unlike others on the show.
Reflecting on their now encounter, Piers said he wasn’t going to sit there and be ‘whacked’ by one of his own team.
He wrote: ‘I don’t mind outside guests trying to make a name for themselves by whacking me like this, but I wasn’t going to sit there and take it from one of my own team, especially someone who I’ve gone out of my way to help whenever he’s asked me for advice about his career.
‘Realising I might say something I’d regret, I decided to leave the studio to cool down.

‘As I walked off, Alex doubled down: “This is pathetic. Absolutely diabolical behaviour. I’m sorry but Piers spouts off on a regular basis and we all have to sit here and listen. From 6.30 to 7am yesterday, it was incredibly hard to watch.
“He has the ability to come in here and talk from a position that he doesn’t fully understand…”‘
Piers continued: ‘I didn’t hear any more of his diatribe, as I was out the door and heading for my dressing room.
‘I knew it wasn’t a good look, the great snowflake-basher running away from confrontation. And on reflection, I shouldn’t have done it. But in the heat of the moment, in my rather strained state of mind, this seemed the less worse option.’
Since Piers’ exit from the show he has received messages from several stars, including Jeremy Clarkson and Bear Grylls , who have said he had a ‘right’ to say his mind.
Sharon Osbourne, 68, has also voiced her support for Piers during her time on the show The Talk, however it has now been suspended as CBS ‘investigates’ her behaviour.
‘Sharon is walking away with a $5 to $10 million minimum payout and was able to spin that it was her decision [to leave the show],’ a source told Page Six on Monday.
