“I just want to say it’s crazy how many birthdays we’ve been together and celebrated together thus far, but now we’re celebrating it in quarantine — or in the midst of all of that stuff,” she said. “Through it all, I’m glad I have you. I’m glad I have our family and I know no matter what is happening in the world, I am blessed to have you as my husband.”

Burruss added, “I hope that this is one of the happiest birthdays even though we’re not able to travel as much and do all the stuff that we normally do. I hope it’s just as much fun.”
