Oscar nominee Salma Hayek penned a heartfelt birthday tribute to her longtime husband François-Henri Pinault, who she wed back in 2009.
As she celebrated her spouse turning 61 on Sunday, the Magic Mike’s Last Dance star posted a sweet picture of herself giving him a kiss on the cheek with her more than 24.2 million Instagram followers.
‘Happy birthday mi amor, you are my sunshine, my warmth, my light, my strength, my joy, my love,’ she captioned the snap, in which she rocked a long sleeve black sequined gown.
In the photo, the Frida actress looked madly in love as she gazed adoringly at her man as her waist-length brunette locks cascaded past her shoulders.
Meanwhile, the billionaire businessman, who sported a black tuxedo and bow tie, tenderly wrapped his arm around her waist.
So in love: Oscar nominee Salma Hayek penned a heartfelt birthday tribute to her longtime husband François-Henri Pinault, who she wed back in 2009
Within five hours, she received more than 178,984 likes and thousands of her fans jumped into the comment section to send well-wishes to her man.
The lovebirds welcomed their daughter, Valentina Paloma Pinault, back in 2007.
He also shares two adult children Mathilde, 21, and François, 24, with his ex-wife Dorothée Lepère, and a son Augustin, 16, from his past relationship with model Linda Evangelista.
Hayek is extremely close to her stepchildren and previously credited them and her own teenager for keeping her ‘humble’ during an interview with Page Six in December.
Hayek, who recently made headlines for her age-defying figure while posing in a bikini on vacation, has previously urged women who are ‘getting older’ to hit the dancefloor.
‘I’ll give you lots of good advice about this. Dance—make sure you’re sensual for yourself. Dance by yourself when nobody’s watching,’ she told Glamour in February.
The beauty continued: ‘And don’t look at yourself in the mirror when you’re dancing. Blindfold yourself and feel you. Feel your body and feel how it interacts with space.’
Later in the interview, she opened up about her long-lasting relationship and how she keeps her marriage from feeling ‘boring.’

‘Boredom is underestimated. I didn’t understand this for a long time. Also it helps that we met each other later in our lives,’ she expressed to the publication.
‘It’s okay just to do nothing and be together; sometimes sharing a space and doing your own thing in silence, with connectivity and thoughtfulness—”Can I bring you a cup of tea?”—is enough. It’s little simple things.’
Salma recently appeared on the big screen in Magic Mike’s Last Dance, which premiered in theaters earlier in February.
And she will soon jump into the world of television in season six of Netflix’s Black Mirror, which is slated to air on the streaming site next month in June. The popular series has taken a brief hiatus, with season five having premiered back in 2019.
The upcoming season not only stars Salma, but other celebrities such as Breaking Bad alum, Aaron Paul, and Kate Mara.
While at Netflix’s Tudum event that offers teasers and first looks at upcoming projects, the show’s creator, Charlie Brooker, discussed what fans can expect for the new season, which contains a total of five episodes.
‘I’ve always felt that Black Mirror should feature stories that are entirely distinct from one another, and keep surprising people, and myself, or else what’s the point? It should be a series that can’t be easily defined, and can keep reinventing itself.’
He later added, ‘The stories are all still tonally Black Mirror through-and-through — but with some crazy swings and more variety than ever before.’
