Lauren Sanchez and Jeff Bezos celebrated a major milestone in a sweet tribute. The former journalist shared a series of images of her son Nikko Gonzalez on his 23rd birthday. 

"Happy birthday Nikko. I love you SO much," she wrote, sharing a collage that spanned from his adorable toddler years to his recent achievements as a model. 

This loving post also included a special mention of his father, former NFL star Tony Gonzalez, and a nod to the united family front with Jeff Bezos, illustrating the seamless blend of their lives.

Lauren's celebration began with an intimate early birthday dinner, where she shared, "Happy early [birthday] @nikkogz. Loved our day together. Eres mi mundo [You're my world]."

Kris Jenner, a close friend of the family, joined in the celebration with a comment that extended warm birthday wishes, "Happy Birthday Nikko!!!!! We love you!" 

The significance of family and co-parenting shines through in Lauren's reflections on her relationship with Nikko's father, Tony, and his wife, October "Tobie" Gonzalez.

"Tony and his wife [October "Tobie" Gonzalez] are my best friends," Lauren revealed in an interview, highlighting the evolution of their relationship from initial friction to deep, lasting friendship, emphasizing, "It wasn’t always that way. There was friction [at the beginning]. But Tony and Tobie were at Thanksgiving with us [this year], and we’re really good friends."

Tony and Tobie also expressed their love for Nikko on his birthday. Tony shared a heartfelt post, "Happy Birthday to my first born! So proud of the person you are! @nikkogzz," pairing it with a meaningful photo that echoed Lauren's post.
