Russell Westbrook is celebrating another year of life and it began with a special celebratory message of appreciation from his wife, Nina

The Oklahoma City Thunder star turned 29 on Sunday and his wife shared thoughts and kind words on Instagram. 

"My man!," she began, "Happy Birthday to you! How many times can I say how amazing you are?! Not enough! lol I'm so fortunate to know this version of you. I couldn't imagine, or want my life with anyone but you. I love you so much. You're amazing. Happy Birthday."

The Westbrooks met as college athletes at UCLA and wed in 2015. This past May, the couple welcomed their first child, a boy named Noah Russell.

Happy Birthday to the reigning NBA MVP!
