What a beauty!

Today, Nicole Ari Parker turns 43 years young. And to celebrate the moment, her husband, Boris Kodjoe, sent some love her way via Instagram.

The talented actor, and photographer responsible for the above photo, wrote, "Happy Birthday to the best wifey, soul mate, ova, baby-momma in the world. I love you."

The couple met in 2003 on the set of Soul Food. They officially jumped the broom in 2005 and later welcomed two children.

Kodjoe is no stranger to professing his love for his wife. In March 2012, on their anniversary, he penned a poem especially for her on ESSENCE.com.
