Michael B. Jordan posts sweet birthday tribute for girlfriend Lori Harvey

The exchange comes just days after Jordan and Harvey confirmed their relationship in mutual posts.

People magazine’s current “Sexiest Man Alive” Michael B. Jordan posted a sweet message to his girlfriend, model Lori Harvey, on her 24th birthday. 

The actor commented on Harvey’s Instagram post Wednesday in which she shared three photos of herself dressed in a Vivienne Westwood corset and sheer white leggings, her hair pulled into a super-long braided ponytail.

The photos were simply captioned with “24” and a birthday cake emoji. 

The Black Panther star commented, “Gimmie!!” and “Sheesh!!” with two emoji. He also called Harvey by his apparent pet name for her, writing, “Happy Birthday Turtle!!” 

She responded, “Thank you nugget.”

The adorable exchange comes just days after the couple confirmed their relationship in mutual posts of each other on the photo-sharing social media site.

He also posted his own note to her on IG captioned “10:10 HBD,” followed by a turtle emoji and #24.

On Sunday, Jordan shared two pictures of himself and Harvey with no caption. Harvey shared a collage of two similar photos with a brown heart as her caption.
