Prince Jackson is wishing his younger brother Bigi a happy birthday.

As Michael Jackson’s youngest son Bigi (formerly Blanket) turned 22 on Wednesday, his older bro, 27, took a moment to give him a b-day shout-out and pay tribute to him. Prince celebrated the occasion with a thoughtful post on his Instagram Story.

In his birthday post, Prince reposted a throwback picture of Bigi that was originally shared by a fan account dedicated to the late King of Pop’s three children. The adorable shot featured a smiling baby Bigi, dressed in denim overalls, and his brother added several festive 🎉 emojis over the shot.

The HEAL Los Angeles Foundation co-founder also shared a photo from earlier in February when the emerging filmmaker screened his short film Rochelles at the Santa Monica Film Festival and ended up taking home the award for best drama.

Bigi posed with a group and flashed his award in the shot, while Prince added a heartwarming note. “Bro is killing it! Chasing his dreams and winning awards 😊😊,” he wrote.

“HBD yo!” the birthday message concluded.

While Jackson’s children whom he shared with ex-wife Debbie Rowe, Prince and 25-year-old Paris, have been somewhat outspoken in recent years about their professional endeavors, Bigi (who the late music icon welcomed via surrogate) remains the most private of the family.

In a rare appearance, both Prince and Bigi stepped out to honor their father on what would have been his 65th birthday in August of last year. The two attended an event at Las Vegas’ Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino where Cirque du Soleil has its ongoing Michael Jackson ONE show taking place.

At the special event, dubbed the “Blue Sapphire Birthday Celebration,” the brothers hosted a public Q&A for fans and attended the Cirque du Soleil performances, while other festivities were also held in the “Thriller” singer’s honor.

Days later, a rare family photo of the brothers and other relatives smiling and posing together was shared to The Jacksons’ official Facebook page.

“A special family gathering,” the caption read, along with hashtags like #MJForever.

In recent years, Bigi also gave his first-ever on-camera interview. The then-19-year-old appeared on Good Morning Britain in 2021 ahead of the United Nations Climate Change Conference to urge world leaders to act on global warming.

In the interview, filmed at the Jackson estate, he also opened up about how he’s inspired by his Grammy-winning father’s legacy.

"There's a lot of really cool stuff here. There's a lot of history in this house and the studio here. That's what he was all about," he said, before referring to his siblings. "That's what each of us want to do — make things that people enjoy but also benefit their lives."

A biopic about the "Billie Jean" singer is currently in the works.

Simply titled Michael, the project is set to be produced by members of his estate and directed by Antoine Fuqua. None other than a member of the hitmaker's family will be taking on the starring role: The singer will be portrayed by Jaafar Jacksonwho is the son of Michael's brother Jermaine Jackson.
