One of Major Tim Peake's first acts after returning safely to land was to phone his family, the European Space Agency has revealed.
It shared a photograph of the British astronaut smiling during the call home.
Meanwhile, Major Peake's parents were pictured watching on proudly as the Briton returned after six months in space.
The astronaut and his two colleagues are due to attend a traditional welcoming ceremony in Kazakhstan, after which Major Peake will have to climb back on a plane to the European Astronaut Centre in Cologne, Germany.
