Friends of the TV star were quick to comment on the snap, including Roxy Jacenko who wrote: "Simply stunning."
"You must both be so proud," wrote Todd McKenney.
“It’s a Mini Mel,” added Paralympian Curt McGrath.
Mel recently shared an emotional tweet bidding farewell to Seven’s Sunday Night, after the network announced it had been axed in October.
“From my first night on @sundaynighton7 to tonight, my last,” Melissa captioned a photo of herself, ahead of the airing of the show’s final episode.
“But before we all begin new chapters, we’ll go out with a smile as we reflect on 11 years of great stories, from great crews & some of the most remarkable people who trusted us with them.
“To each and every person ever involved in any way with @SundayNightOn7 we say thank you,” she wrote in the lengthy post.
Many of the TV presenter’s celebrity friends and family took to Instagram to pass on their regards and congratulate Melissa on her hosting of the show.
Melissa’s touching tribute comes after her recent Twitter post, where she revealed that the show would run until the end of the year, but not be renewed.
“As we go our separate ways it’s a massive thank you to your cameramen, sounds, editors, producers, unit managers, transcribers, online, graphics, ingest, makeup, wardrobe & studio crews,” Melissa captioned a photo of herself and her fellow presenters.
“A special thank you to our viewers for loving the show as much as we do. But above all, to those who shared their stories with us, it was a privilege,” she wrote.
