“My lil’ guy is 2 today and I couldn’t be more proud,” the celebrity father doted. “[It] feels good to look back on your journey thus far. We got so much more to do, to learn, to experience. And I can’t wait to share this world with you. Be a good lil’ brother to Maddie and Mason and a good big brother to Roro. SJ I LOVE YOU TO LIFE!!
