Miranda Lambert is ringing in her 38th birthday in the sweetest way as her husband, Brendan McLoughlin, shared a touching message in her honor. 

On Wednesday, McLoughlin took to Instagram to wish his bride the happiest of birthdays with a series of photos and a caption that has fans’ hearts melting. 

“This world became such a better place with you in it,” the former NYPD officer began. “You are a light for those in the dark, a voice for the ones who can’t be heard and most important of all, you’re the most amazing wife day in and day out.” 

He closed his post by writing, “I hope today brings you as much joy as you bring to me daily. Happiest of birthdays @mirandalambert ❤️❤️ I love you 🥳🥳”

The birthday girl was quick to respond to McLoughlin’s post. 

“I love you my sweet husband ❤️,” she wrote in the comments section. “Thanks for making me breakfast this morning! Love me some bday bacon.”
