“Terminator” star Arnold Schwarzenegger shared a touching tribute on social media to celebrate his daughter, Christina Schwarzenegger’s, birthday.
“Schpatzl, you have the biggest heart and the sharpest mind. Happy birthday!” he wrote on Instagram alongside two photos.
On the left, Schwarzenegger shared a throwback photo of him holding on to a young Christina during what appears to be a “Terminator 3” set photo, while the image on the right is a more recent one with his grown-up daughter.
“When I think about the best moments of my life, you sleeping on my chest beats every movie premiere, every fundraiser, every contest. I’m so proud of you and I love you,” he added.
Christina, who is celebrating her 28th birthday, responded in the comments.
“Love you pappa,” she wrote, along with five heart emojis.
Christina Schwarzenegger’s mother, Maria Shriver, also shared a touching tribute in honor of her daughter’s birthday.
