"I'm so lucky to have this family for my birthday 3️⃣6️⃣🥳," she captioned the post. "Thank you for making me feel so special every day of my life, #mamaslasagna."

In the comments section, Ben wrote, "I'm obsessed, but it's a healthy obsession. We love you!!"

In another post in June, Erin gushed about her husband's support ever since welcoming Mae.

"If he's not scooping me up off the sofa as I'm recovering from surgery, he's mixing a bottle or taking Helen swimming," she wrote at the time.

She added, "And I have kissed him every time he's in arm's reach because I know exactly how lucky we all are. 😍 A reminder for those with spouses: tell them often - 'thank you for everything you do for us.' and MEAN IT."
