"Jennifer, every moment with you is a blessing. You are my best friend, my inspiration, an amazing mother, and a role model to all," he continued. "Macha, I am so lucky to be with you. Thank you for making my life better. I can't wait to make more memories with you. I love you. [Happy Anniversary]."
