Pelphrey listed his favorite qualities he's seen in Cuoco, and shared his hopes that their daughter grows to be as "independent, talented, hilarious, generous, incredibly kind and thoughtful"
In celebration of the Big Bang Theory alum turning another year older, Pelphrey, 41, shared a series of photos featuring the couple’s happiest days with their daughter Matilda in a tribute post to Instagram Thursday.
“Happy birthday to my fave,” he wrote in the caption. “Life has exploded into a million new dimensions since we first met, every one more beautiful and meaningful than the last.”
Alongside car selfies, family photos with their dogs and shots of Cuoco with their baby, he continued: “You are truly an amazing partner and an incredible mom. I can’t imagine Matilda having a greater role model to grow up emulating than her mom…. her independent, talented, hilarious, generous, incredibly kind and thoughtful mom.”
“So HAPPY BIRTHDAY from me and all the little ones. We love you!!!! ♥️💫🙏♥️💫🙏,” Pelphrey continued.
Since giving birth in March, Cuoco has shared several photos of Matilda on her Instagram. In April, the actress exclusively told PEOPLE about her life as a first-time mom and how "natural" Pelphrey is as a dad.
"I cannot believe how natural he is, how much he loves it," she gushed at the time. "I mean, when we were in the hospital, he did everything — every diaper, he's the swaddle king. All the nurses said, 'Oh my God, you're the best guy swaddler we've ever seen."
Pelphrey wasn’t the only one who marked the occasion of Cuoco’s birthday.
Her sister, Briana Cuoco, shared a collage of her favorite moments with the actress on her Instagram Story.
“happy birthday sister!!!!! i love you so much. thank you for your laughter & love,” she wrote. “would never wanna know what life is like without it.”
Pelphrey’s sister, Lauren, quickly followed suit and also paid tribute to the Flight Attendant star with a selfie shared to her Story.
“Happy birthday to one of my favorite humans,” she captioned a selfie of the duo.
Lauren continued, listing her favorite things about the actress: “Voice notes and hair clips and night gowns and laughing and crying and babies and tuna subs and dateline and total 100% honesty… I love you like a sister and am so grateful to have you.”
Cuoco’s 8 Simple Rules costar Amy Davidson posted a throwback photo of the duo showing off their shoes on a pink carpet while Brad Goreski shared a cute video of the actress “feeling” herself he fawned over her beauty.
Her Based on a True Story castmates Liana Liberato and Priscilla Quintana also honored her with posts to their Instagram Stories.
Liberato shared a photo of Cuoco on set holding an inverted umbrella as well as a throwback photo of the two in another slide.
“happy birthday to my sister,” she wrote. “the best gal love you. we’ve known each other for so long…”
