Weeee! Fredrik Eklund turns 40 today!

The Million Dollar Listing New York star is celebrating a milestone birthday, and with the upcoming sixth season of his hit Bravo show, a close-knit group of friends (including an MDLNY alum and a RHONY cast member) and a boozy new business venture, there's plenty for Eklund to toast to. Here, six reasons we love the reality TV realtor:

1. He has the best moves.

Eklund is always dancing like no one's watching — although most of the time he shows off his moves in public hotspots like the grocery store and Central Park. But you won't find us complaining. His Instagram video posts never fail to make our day.

2. And the best houses.

Whether it's his luxe Tribeca apartment or his country home in Connecticut, Eklund and his partner, Derek Kaplan, have quite the eye for stunning interior design (not that we're surprised).

3. And the best friends.

Eklund is ultimate #friendshipgoals with Luis D. Ortiz, who announced he was leaving the show last year. Eklund is even visiting his former co-star in his new home of Paris to celebrate the big 4-0, posting this video of the duo dancing in front of the Eiffel Tower.

4. Also, the best clients.

Eklund teamed up with another of his famous friends, Real Housewives of New York's Bethenny Frankel, to sell her New York City apartment. The pair sealed the deal on the $6.95 million pad for full asking price in just one day.

5. Plus, the best new business.

While in Paris, Eklund took to Instagram to reveal his latest project: A line of wine aptly named "High Kick Rose" in tribute to his signature dance move.

6. And finally, the best puppy pal.

Eklund's dog Mini is the absolute cutest. No further evidence needed.

Here's wishing Fredrik a year filled with dance breaks and million dollar sales!
