Whitney Houston would have been turning 49 today (August 9) and to honour the late singer's birthday, her daughter Bobbi Kristina has tattooed her mother's initials on her wrist, also featuring four doves.

The 19 year old's boyfriend, Nick Gordon, who is also Whitney's adopted son has also had the same ink tattooed onto his wrist. The pair took to Twitter to show off their new artwork and to post an emotional message to their mother.

Before the tattoo session, Bobbi tweeted: "On the way with MYbooboo @nickdgordon :)heading2 #Inksomnia for our TATTSSS !this is for you mommy (: we love you, happybirthday OurladyXxo… You all will get2see!

Bobbi has understandably found it exceptionally hard to deal with the death of her mum and added to the social networking site: "Once it hits 12 am mommy it's your birthday & I am going2celebrate it2thee fullest! Bc YOU deserve it damn it, YOU deaerveNothingburtheBEST!" she tweeted.

"TREND#HAPPY49thBIRTHDAYMOMMY STARTS AT 12 am eastern time ! so TREND TREND TREND! rip mommy . Oh how Iloveuso; I'llNEVERLetUGO," another tweet read.

Bobbi also opened up about her spiritual connection previously in an interview with talkshow host Oprah Winfrey, saying: "She's always with me, I can always feel her with me. Throughout the house, lights turn on and off and I'm like 'Mom what are you doing.' I can still sit there and I can still laugh with her, I can still talk to her," she told Oprah.

Recently Bobbi and Nick called off their engagement - which happened soon after Whitney's death in February - after everything became too much to deal with.

A source told the PA: ''Bobbi and Nick really love each other. But they just can't figure out how they want to define their relationship. Bobbi felt like she got swept up in the moment because she was going through a lot of emotions after Whitney's death. But they're in love and still together, just not engaged.''
