I guess, we just read the most heartwarming birthday message yet. Yesterday, January 19, the “Big Bang Theory” star Jim Parsons posted a photo of his husband, producer Todd Spiewak, to celebrate the latter’s special day.
“To say I am grateful you were born would be a ridiculous understatement,” Jim began his caption that accompanied an old photo of Todd looking happy as a lit sparkler on a cake lent a celebratory glow on what looks like an intimate candle-lit dinner.
“I love you and hope you always feel free to sing along to all the birthday wishes coming your way!” he added.
Jim first posted the photo of Todd back in December 2018 and said it showed his husband’s true spirit. They were simply having dinner at a New York restaurant, Jim narrated, when the cake came out the way it did.
“It was no one’s birthday,” Jim continued, “but yes, Todd sang anyway.”
Last November 2020, the couple celebrated their 18th anniversary. Of course, Jim knows how to express his feelings through an Instagram post.
Here’s what the actor penned:
“Babies that were born the day I met Todd Spiewak turn 18 years old today; happy birthday to them, and happy 18th blind-date-set-up anniversary to Todd. Our intuitive friends, Tami and Oonie, put us together and, on November 15th, 2002, we played pool (huh?) at Slate on 21st street; we sang Karaoke (again, huh?) at Sing Sing on Avenue A, and then we went to Robbie’s birthday party at…
Some gay bar on the east side (that part makes sense to me). Todd walked me to the 1st Ave L train stop and, as we said goodbye, I knew we would be seeing each other again – which ended up being two nights later, when we went to see Michael Moore’s “Bowling for Columbine” at the Union Square AMC – because nothing says “let’s start a life-journey together” better than a divisive documentary (why couldn’t we just go see “My Big Fat Greek Wedding”, like every other new couple in 2002?)
That said, we both loved the movie and talked about it at Patsy’s Pizzeria (may the Union Sq location Rest In Peace) afterward. My life changed completely and completely for the better. Love wins! ❤️ 🌈”
In an interview with Jimmy Fallon on “The Tonight Show” last October, Jim revealed that they both tested positive for coronavirus in March 2020.
The couple got married in May 2017, after dating for nearly 15 years.
