This birthday wish is almost as sweet as a homemade cupcake. Mandy Moore wished Milo Ventimiglia a happy birthday on Twitter, and it's yet another example of why the This Is Us cast is so special. While the cast isn't related in real life, the onscreen family seems to have taken their Pearson pride to heart. And they never miss a chance to support one another.
Ventimiglia turned 40 on Saturday, and his TV wife had nothing but kind words for her co-star. "Happiest Birthday to the greatest tv husband in all the land! We are so lucky to know you and be in your orbit," she wrote on Twitter. That's not the only birthday shout out she offered up though. Moore also filmed a video for Ventimiglia's b-day. During a recent Today interview, the actor made a special birthday video for her onscreen partner, and her kind words are sure to melt your heart. She said,
"Mi! Happy birthday! Oh my goodness, I'm excited to see you soon and get back to work. You are the best — you know how much I love and adore you and I hope that this year brings everything you want. You deserve it all. And, I can't wait to celebrate with you in person. Happy, happy birthday."
This is all just further proof that Jack and Rebecca are forever, no matter what the This Is Us writers throws at them.
Birthdays are a big deal in the world of This Is Us. Remember, Jack and the Big Three share the same birthday, and it was that tricky little twist that gave the pilot its emotional punch. Given how significant Jack's birthday turned out to be on the show, it's heartwarming to see Moore put so much thought into sending lots of best wishes Ventimiglia's way on his special day.
The Pearson parents hit a rough patch at the end of Season 1, but offscreen, the actors who bring Jack and Rebecca to life are always supporting each other. Their camaraderie and love for their show is infectious. No matter what, the Pearsons are there for one another — even when the cameras aren't rolling.
