SIR Jackie Stewart posted up a rare photograph of himself with wife Lady Helen as he thanked her for helping to bring up their two sons. 
Lady Helen who turned 82 in January and now receives 24 hour care at home is in a wheelchair after being diagnosed with dementia in 2014. 
Three time F1 world champ Sir Jackie has often paid tribute  to his wife, recently saying that she is still ‘a fantastically attractive lady‘ and has an always been a ‘great looker’. 
However his high school sweetheart Lady Helen who he married in 1962, has rarely been seen public over the last few years with few pictures appearing of her as she battles with her illness.
For Mothers Day, Sir Jackie paid tribute to her and shared a private moment of the two cosied up on their sofa alongside their little dog. 
Sir Jackie looked half asleep as he lay back on the couch and a smiling Lady Helen leaned over to look at him and grabbed his arm. 
The racing legend, who also shared a black and white throwback picture of his family behind the scenes at the track, wrote: “Happy Mother's Day to the woman who was Team Principal to our two boys.”
The couple have two sons Mark and Paul and one of their nine grandchildren Dylan Stewart added: “She's a rockstar grandma.”
Others were amused to see Sir Jackie without a cap on with one commenting: “ (My best David Attenborough impression)
it's one the incredible things I've seen in my life, Jackie Stewart without his hat on. This has hardly been captured on camera!”
