Myleene Klass threw her daughter Hero a RuPaul’s Drag Race-themed tenth birthday party, and it was the Bimini Bon birthday bash of every fan’s dreams.
The radio presenter, her fiancé Simon Motson and Myleene’s daughters Hero and Ava, all got into full drag for the party, which boasted a red carpet, a Bimini Bon Boulash-themed cake and many lip sync battles.

Drag Race UK season two icon Bimini also sent a special birthday message to the birthday girl, who dubbed herself Hero Hun Houlash for the day, wishing her the “best birthday ever”. Myleene captioned the video: “A message from her idol. It meant so much to her. We all cried!”
Hero was also gifted a ring by Drag Race UK season one winner The Vivienne. BET presenter Lee Gray also gifted her Dom&Ink’s book Queer Power: Icons, Activists & Game Changers from Across the Rainbow, which highlights queer trailblazers like Jamie Windust, Blair Imani and Billy Porter.
Klass gushed on her Instagram story: “I am so proud of my awesome blended family. What a day to remember and finally be able to celebrate.
“And as for this legend of a 10yo [Hero]. An epic drag queen party to celebrate this unique little girl. After two lockdown bdays [sic]… we finally got to be with those we waited to be with. We love you Queen Hero. Shantay, you stay.”
Myleene Klass’ fiancé, PR executive Simon Motson, revealed he had chosen the drag name: “Illegally Blonde.”
Hero’s 13-year-old sister Ava also took to Instagram to gush about the party, writing: “Happy Birthday to my gorgeous little sister Hero, my BFF and the Queen of Lip Syncing.
“I think it’s so inspiring to see a girl confident enough to embrace what she loves and go all out. Even though I may be the older sibling, I have never stopped learning from her. The fierceness, the fun, she is the best ally I could ever wish for.
“As a family, we embrace each other’s differences and passions so thank you to everyone especially my Mum for throwing Hero the mega drag queen party she deserves and my dad for going to such lengths for someone we all love and doing it in heels!”
