“As you turn 3 I want to say that with each passing year you become more and more beautiful, charming and sweet!” Timothy’s post began.

“I mean, heck the moment I first laid eyes on you I already thought you were the most beautiful hippo I had ever seen and yet SOMEHOW, SOME WAY you just keep knocking me off my feet…and that ain’t easy…I HAVE FOUR and a low center of gravity!”

While Timothy isn’t featured in the clip, he did hire his “good buddy, country music star and “official Timothy wingman” Aaron Watson.

In the two-minute long video, Watson sings “Happy Birthday” to Fiona and reminds her that Timothy “loves you so much.”

“He’s sending all his love all the way from San Antonio up to Cincinnati. He wishes he was with you now,” said Watson.

Timothy wasn’t the only one sending Fiona well wishes on her big day.

“Happy 3rd Birthday to the Greatest Hippo in the World! It’s been 3 magical years since fabulous Fiona came into all of our lives and changed us forever!” read an Instagram post from the Cincinnati Zoo and Botanical Garden alongside a series of adorable and heartwarming videos of Fiona.

Tamra Judge Is Leaving RHOC After 12 Seasons Id Prefer to Walk Away on My Own Terms

Tamra Judge Is Leaving RHOC After 12 Seasons Id Prefer to Walk Away on My Own Terms

Another longtime cast member of the The Real Housewives of Orange County is saying goodbye.

After 12 seasons on the show, Tamra Judge is departing the series ahead of its upcoming 15th season.

Judge has been on the long-running Bravo franchise since it’s third season in 2007. She’s currently the longest running full-time cast member in Housewives history.

“It’s been a wild ride, and after all these years, I’m looking forward to life away from the cameras,” Judge tells PEOPLE. “I was offered a chance to come back to the show in a limited role, but would prefer to walk away on my own terms.”

Throughout the years on the show, she’s given RHOC some of its most memorable moments, including the show’s first wine toss. She also led a three-episode spinoff series, Tamra’s OC Wedding, which chronicled her June 2013 wedding to husband Eddie Judge at the Monarch Beach Resort in Dana Point, California.

“Eddie and the kids are very excited,” Judge adds of her husband and her four children — sons Ryan Vieth, 34, and Spencer Barney 19, and daughter Sydney Barney, 21, and Sophia Barney, 14.

“I want to thank all the fans who have offered me their support over the years,” she continues. “It’s meant a lot.”

The reality star — who owns and operates Vena Wellness, a popular CBD company, and CUT Fitness, a gym — posted about her departure on Instagram as well.

“I’m sad to go but I’m very excited about my future,” she wrote, captioning a photo of herself and Eddie.

Liam Hemsworth and Girlfriend Gabriella Brooks Enjoy a Casual Date in Malibu

Liam Hemsworth and Gabriella Brooks are going strong!

Shortly after the Isn’t It Romantic actor, 30, and his new girlfriend, 21, packed on the PDA during a trip to Australia, the pair were spotted together yet again.

On Saturday, Hemsworth and Brooks were seen grabbing a bite to eat in Malibu, California.

Dressed down for the casual outing, the actor wore a plain white T-shirt with a matching cap and a pair of sunglasses, while the model opted for a blue-and-white top and jeans.

Earlier this month, the new couple were seen exchanging a kiss during a beach day in Byron Bay, Australia, where Hemsworth’s older brother Chris Hemsworth lives with his family.

“Liam and Gabriella have spent a lot of time in Australia together,” a source previously told PEOPLE of the duo, adding that they were “getting serious.”

Hemsworth and Brooks were first linked in December, when the actor was photographed introducing the model to his parents.

Hemsworth filed for divorce from ex-wife Miley Cyrus in August after less than a month of marriage.

Although the exes reportedly settled their divorce in December, agreeing to divide their property, with Cyrus retaining custody of their animals, their split reportedly won’t be finalized until March.

Cyrus, 27, has also publicly moved on and has been dating Cody Simpson.

“Happy birthday to my best friend in the entire world,” she wrote in a loving message to the Australian singer as he celebrated turning 23 earlier this month. “I love you and our pirate life!”

Liam Hemsworths Sister-in-Law Elsa Pataky Doesnt Regret Her Matching Tattoo with Miley Cyrus

Elsa Pataky has no qualms about sharing a matching tattoo with her brother-in-law Liam Hemsworth‘s ex Miley Cyrus.

The actress and mom of three — who is married to Avengers star Chris Hemsworth — said she has no regrets about any of her tattoos including the matching ink she and Cyrus, 27, got in 2016.

“I don’t regret any of them, they’re symbols and I love having them and it reminds me of those moments,” Pataky, 43, told Vogue Australia for its February issue.

The mom of three and Cyrus got tattoos of a small wave symbol in black ink.

Pataky did not otherwise comment on Cyrus and Liam’s recent high-profile split in the Vogue Australia interview, but she previously shared her thoughts on the breakup while speaking to reporters at an event in November.

“My brother in law, well, after a relationship where he dedicated 10 years, he’s discouraged … but he’s taking it well,” Pataky said at the time, adding, “He’s a strong guy and he deserves the best. I think he deserves much more.”

Pataky also said that her brother-in-law had been leaning on his family, including his older brother Chris, in the weeks after the split.

“Family is always there to protect you. He and his brother are so close and he’s really been there for him to give him the strength he needs,” she told reporters.
