The recipe for Alessandra Ambrosio‘s perfect birthday? Cake, candles and cuddles from her two children.

The Victoria’s Secret Angel — who announced that she would be permanently taking off her wings after the brand’s 2017 runway show — shared an adorable photo with daughter Anja, 9, and son Noah, 5, on her 37th birthday, Wednesday.

“Celebrating with my loves 🎂✨🎈,” Ambrosio captioned the shot, in which she held her son while her daughter showed off a sparkler to the camera.

The model shares her children with businessman Jamie Mazur, who also posted a birthday tribute featuring the little ones.

“Happy birthday to the love of my life who gave me the two best gifts a man can ever dream of,” Mazur captioned a shot of the trio with their arms outspread on the beach. “May all your dreams come true and more. ❤ FOREVER”

Ambrosio recently took her kids on the ultimate spring break in Hawaii, documenting their tropical vacation from sunsets on the beach to snacking on ice cream.

The model is a pro at balancing motherhood with her high-profile career, but she says being a parent is always her top priority.

“[My kids] always come first, so I try to spend as much time as possible with them,” she told Glamour in 2015. “Sometimes that means rearranging my schedule or bringing them on set.”
