"What if your bday started today until I think it's enough... #Might be a long one," the note read, while a second post-it had "Got you again" written on it.
Cheryl followed it up with another photo collage of herself holding up more signs, which read "Cheryl only" and "Sorry not sorry".
It was Jean-Bernard who finally revealed her surprise on Instagram, sharing a photo of the loved-up couple enjoying an meal for two in Italy.
The Crazy Stupid Love singer enjoyed a private, candle-lit dinner for two in Italy
The Frenchman had pulled out all the stops for his wife's birthday, organising a private candle-lit dinner complete with a bottle of champagne and pink roses on the table.
A dapper Jean-Bernard wore a buttoned-down shirt and camel-hued trousers, while Geordie beauty Cheryl looked truly angelic. The X Factor judge opted for a floaty white maxi dress with lace trimming for her big night.
"She finally finished her Italian dinner, in Italy," Jean-Bernard captioned the photo on his private Instagram account.
Cheryl and Jean-Bernard are set to celebrate their first wedding anniversary next week
The good-looking couple are set to celebrate another momentous event next week – their first wedding anniversary on 7 July. Cheryl and Jean-Bernard married in a private ceremony in Mustique after a few months of dating.
The pop star announced her new marital status with a photo of her ring on Instagram, writing that she does not usually discuss her personal life but wanted to stop the speculation.
Earlier this year Cheryl mused on her whirlwind romance, telling The Telegraph: "You hear so many stories, don't you? People who have known each other two weeks and they're together for 75 years, people who have been together six months and they break up. So there's no right or wrong."
