The image – which is the last photograph of Poppy on his Instagram feed – was captioned: ‘Happy happy birthday my love can’t wait to celebrate with you when you get home. ❤️ @poppydelevingne.’
MailOnline has contacted James and Poppy’s representatives for comment.
The Mail On Sunday reported in January that the pair had ‘consciously uncoupled’ after being little more than friends for the best part of a year.

The following month she flashed her ringless hand to photographers at Perfect Magazine’s London Fashion Week party at The Standard.
Poppy looked gorgeous on the night in a striking black and white gown, enjoying the celeb-packed bash with friends Georgia May Jagger and Iris Law.
However, there was no sign of her unique blue diamond engagement and wedding rings or James, whom she married in 2014 at a lavish Knightsbridge church ceremony, with sisters Cara and Chloe Delevingne among her 17 bridesmaids.
The same month, Poppy’s husband James was posting from Chamonix, France, enjoying a ski trip with friends.

It’s believed that Poppy moved into her own place in West London, with an insider spilling: ‘James is refusing to accept things are over.’
James, who works for his family’s aerospace company, proposed in October 2012 with a bespoke jewellery box by Anya Hindmarch.
It contained an engagement ring alongside pictures of the couple and the words ‘will you marry me?’ embossed in gold.
Poppy went on to have three different elaborate hen parties around the globe with her celebrity friends including Rosie Huntingdon-Whiteley and Sienna Miller ahead of the lavish London nuptials.
The couple, who were together five years before they wed and do not have children, with Poppy musing back in 2017 about her family plans, saying: ‘You know when you have a roast dinner? My favourite bit of a roast dinner is the potatoes and gravy.
‘So what I do is I eat around them and save them till last, because that’s the best bit. And that’s kind of how I feel about having children.’
Despite the reported split, the pair have continued to mix in the same social circles, with the pair attending Glastonbury Festival together alongside pals Sienna Miller, Alexa Chung and Matt Smith in June.
