Happy Birthday, Bill Clinton!

Hillary Clinton was just one of many well-wishers celebrating her husband, President Bill Clinton’s 70th birthday on Friday. The Democratic presidential candidate took to Twitter and Instagram to show her love for her husband of 45 years.

“45 years later, I couldn’t be happier to have you by my side. Happy birthday, Bill! -H,” the 68-year-old former Secretary of State wrote on Twitter.

She later posted the same throwback from the couple’s October 1975 wedding on Instagram with the caption, “Happy birthday, Bill!”

The throwbacks (which Hillary loves!) came just after the Clintons’ daughter Chelsea posted a similar black and white flashback showing a smiley Chelsea and Bill.

“In honor of my dad’s 70th birthday tomorrow! Marc, Charlotte, Aidan & I can’t wait to celebrate!” she wrote on Twitter.

And Chelsea’s 1-year-old Charlotte also had a gift for her grandfather, who she calls, “Poppop.” Chelsea posted a photo of an Elmo balloon with “Happy Birthday” written on it.

“Here’s the balloon Charlotte got for Poppop. She hasn’t learned yet presents are for the person getting the gift…!”

This is not the first time Hillary has wished her husband a happy birthday via social media throwbacks. Last year, she posted an up-close photo of the young couple for her husband’s 69th birthday.

There were other throwback birthday wishes on Friday:

Come October, it will be Bill’s turn to fete Hillary on her birthday – and their 41st wedding anniversary.
