It is a special day in Salma Hayek and her husband François-Henri Pinault's household: his daughter Mathilde "Tildie" Pinault is officially 23.

As the birthday girl marked her 23rd year around the sun, her stepmom made sure she was feeling celebrated, and shared a sweet tribute to her on social media.

Mathilde is the Kering owner's first and only daughter with his ex-wife, Dorethée Lepère, who François was married to from 1996 until 2004. He also shares with her 26-year-old François, plus, separately, his daughter with Salma, Valentina, 15, and a son with model Linda Evangelista, Augustin, 16.

In honor of Mathilde's birthday, Salma took to Instagram and shared a round of photos with her, starting off with a snap of the two enjoying a boat ride surrounded by bright blue waters and cliffs.

She also included a tender shot of Mathilde hugging her father, who is smiling ear-to-ear, as well as another selfie from the boat.

"Happy Birthday Tildie Tildie Tildie," Salma wrote in the caption, adding: "We love you and are so proud of the woman you've become," next to a red heart emoji.
