Bobby Bones’ wife, Caitlin Estell, celebrated her birthday over the weekend with the radio and TV personality by her side as well as a star-studded guest list. 

Her birthday celebration included guests Brett Eldredge, Jake Owen, and Dan + Shay’s Dan Smyers, as well as members of The Bobby Bones Show, including Amy Brown and Mike Deestro.   

A “Beautiful Birthday”

Reflecting on the special evening, Caitlin wrote, “It was a beautiful birthday full of so much love! I was reflecting back on my move to Nashville 4 years ago and how at that time I only knew my then-boyfriend, now husband. Flashing forward to today I’m so grateful for this support system that has accepted and loved me. I love each of you in these photos and clips, as well as the ones who left early – I probably would’ve done the same.”  

Serenaded By Brett Eldredge

At the birthday soiree, Caitlin was serenered by Eldredge, who sang her the song “Oklahoma” in honor of her big day. This has become a tradition amongst the friend group as Eldredge has sung the song to her for her birthday for the past four years. Caitlin shared a video of the birthday serenade on Instagram and the country crooner was quick to comment, ”I’ve got my Oklahoma sister covered in the birthday song department for life! Happy birthday, we all love ya!” 

Bobby paid tribute to his wife with a heartfelt Instagram post in honor of her big day. In the caption, he recapped some of the things he loves about her, including her “constant drive to learn more and more,” her loyalty to her friends, the way she loves their dogs, the positive mental health impact she has on him, and much more. 

“I know I’m not the easiest person to love. But I think you are! I love you. Happy birthday,” he wrote. 

What Did Bobby Bones Get Caitlin For Her Birthday?

According to the official Bobby Bones Show website, Bobby gave Caitlin the “gift of three” for her birthday, including a purchase of his choice, allowing her to select a gift and a contribution from her friends. To reveal the gifts, Bones sent her on a scavenger hunt, which went on to reveal several surprise messages to her from folks from the Oklahoma Sooners. She later found a handbag that she wanted near the PlayStation in their home. 

Bobby and Caitlin initially crossed paths in 2019 through a shared acquaintance, sparking a romantic connection a few weeks afterward. Despite enduring a long-distance relationship for several months, they eventually reunited in Nashville in 2020.

During the same year, they took significant steps in their relationship by getting engaged and later exchanging vows in July 2021 at their home in Middle Tennessee, as reported by People.

They celebrated two years of marriage on July 17, 2023. To mark the occasion, Bones shared a gallery of photos from their time as a married couple alongside a sweet caption that read, “2 years in the books. And it’s the greatest book I’ve ever been a part of writing.” 

Caitlin often joins Bobby Bones when he’s on his comedy tour and always seems to showcase her support for him on social media.
