"Layers on layers. So happy you're mine. You've even made me fall in like with baseball. YOU HAVE AN ARM OF GOLD. And you can hit the life out of a ball that flies at 80 mph. You're amazing. We are gonna celebrate hard. Because that's how we roll."

His daughter with Pearl Lowe, model Daisy Lowe, even gave a shout-out to her little brother in the comments section, saying: "All the love for magic Zooms," as did many of his other followers with their birthday wishes.
