Shortly after, Hawn, 76, said in a follow-up comment, "Honey I showed this to daddy. Here's his message … 'Birdie, mommy just showed me this picture, this perfect Father's Day present. I've never seen it before.' "

"Wow … it's a killer. Lotta water under the bridge … it's kinda hard to see it though cause all that water seems to somehow have found its way into my eyes," Russell continued, according to Hawn. "Thanks for making me the luckiest father in the world sweetheart. I love you, Pa."
