On the day of his birthday, he wrote a moving tribute, explaining how grateful he was for his family and friends and all of his supporters. “I’m feeling so grateful today, not just for celebrating my big day with my incredible friends and family on this magical trip, but for all of the well-wishes, love and support from everyone. I couldn’t ask for anything more. Here’s to a healthy, happy and meaningful 365 days for us all!”
