Craig’s photo post was equally touching, as she used it to give a shout-out to “the Smartest, Kindest, most Polite & most Loving little protector a Mum could EVER ask for.”
The three-photo set first showed Prince and his mama sharing a smooch while standing on rocks in a pool, then striking another pair of poses with the birthday boy’s big blue “3” balloon.
“Prince Oliver … you are my dream come true ?,” Craig concluded her caption, tacking on the hashtag, “#THREEtoday.”

“Tristan is very charming and sweet to Khloé,” the insider said. “She always wanted to keep her family together because of True. Splitting from Tristan in the past was extremely difficult for her. She is flattered that he is trying to win her back, but not flattered enough to be in a romantic relationship with him.”
“Who knows what will happen in the future though,” the source added. “Right now she is focused on just getting along with him so they can have the best family time together with True.”
