Your heart is full of love and affection,” the adoring husband wrote under the picture. But the love didn’t stop there!

“Your hands are always caring. I am lucky to have you as my wife,” Carmelo continued. “HAPPY BORN DAY QUEEN I LOVE YOU @lala.” La La clearly approved of the impromptu poem, because she replied, “Love u too Mel ❤️.” Carmelo was just returning the love, as it was La La who gushed how Carmelo has been an “amazing dad” to their 12-year-old son, Kiyan Carmelo Anthony, on Father’s Day, and then commended her husband for staying “solid” despite the haters on his birthday on May 29!
