He then added: “For my birthday!”

Loren and Sabia have recently been the target of sick impersonators pretending to be them on Facebook and social media.

They have recently had their account on the platform removed, with Sabia’s relative Branko Reiche writing: "Unbelievable! All 3 of these pages are fake but guess which one Facebook, in its infinite wisdom, has removed for being fake."

An update was posted shortly afterwards saying: "Facebook has decided we are authentic and released the page."

Sabia too wrote on her official Sabia & Loren account after it was released, saying: "After a brief suspension from Facebook for being 'imposters'… we are back online!!!"

One shocked fan commented saying: "Suspended for being the real you. Boggles the mind."
