Dawn O'Porter is many things - hilarious on Instagram (and in general) a writer, a mum and she's married to Irish actor Chris O'Dowd.


Something that she acknowledged today when she took to the social media platform to wish her other half a happy birthday.


Dawn chose a picture of Chris, clad in brightly coloured shirts, relaxing on a boat while on holidays.



She captioned it, ''happy birthday to my dreamboat! The love of my life. My one and only (Shit, I hope Beyonce doesn’t see this). LOVE YOU, BABY!! @chrisodowd.''


The couple, who have been married for six years, are parents to three-year-old Art and one-year-old Valentine. 


Friends and fans also commented on the post, giving their good wishes.


One wrote, ''happy birthday Chris. But I guess every day is a birthday being married to Dawn.''


While another said, ''he is also the love of my life. happy birthday @chrisodowd.''

The 39-year-old  has spoken openly before about her marriage to Chris, who she met at her 30th birthday party, nine years ago.


She revealed that she knew instantly that he was the man for her.


She said, “I remember his big smiling face, and his big long arms wrapping around me and introducing himself in a hot Irish accent, and then he was gone. And I spent the rest of the night thinking: ‘Where did that man go?'”


How romantic - happy birthday Chris!
