Yolanda Hadid is paying tribute to her youngest child, Anwar, in honor of his 25th birthday!

On Saturday, June 22, the model and former reality TV star shared a heartfelt message for her son — alongside a few sweet family snaps from over the years — in which she called Anwar "my mirror, reflecting back to me not only the calm but the storms."

"Happy birthday, my love," wrote Yolanda, 60. "Cheers to another journey around the sun, may you be blessed with love, health and happiness. I am so deeply proud of the man that you are, your authenticity is rare and your kindness is a magical gift to all of us who are blessed to know you."

Elsewhere in the caption, the former model wrote that Anwar has "showed me my strength, my fears and rawest emotions always touching the deepest part of my spirit challenging me to grow and heal."

"Thank you for lighting up my path, and for the beautiful love that expends with every shared experience in this lifetime with you," Yolanda concluded of her son, whom she shares with ex Mohamed Hadid. "I love you my son 💙."

Anwar isn't the only child whom Yolanda has toasted on social media. The mom of three recently celebrated one of Bella's latest rodeo events in Texas with an Instagram post.

In April, she posted an Instagram carousel featuring 27-year-old Bella holding up two buckles for her wins and posing with boyfriend Adan Banuelos as they sat on horses holding hands.

"❤️3 Finals and 2 buckles! Congratulations my love, soo proud of you my cow girl…..," Yolanda captioned the pics.
