'My love and my light': Justin Long pens romantic note for girlfriend Kate Bosworth on her 40th birthday
LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA: Justin Long celebrated his girlfriend Kate Bosworth's 40th birthday by showering her with love in a heartfelt tribute on his social media. The 'Accepted' actor shared a carousel of images of him and Bosworth showing the couple exchanging kisses, watching the sunset beside the lake, eating, drinking, and cuddling in one other's arms alongside a long romantic caption.
"She is 40!" Long wrote on his Instagram post, shared on Monday, December 2. "She is also the best part of my day, everyday - even when we're not together. She laughs with abandon. She makes me laugh the same - all the time. She sees beauty everywhere and in everyone. She thanks everyone - even when she's suffering, she's kind." Long, 44, went on to list some of the many things he loves about his partner's personality along with her endearing qualities and their relationship. "She loves beer and football more than I do (and I love beer and football). She is the strongest person I've ever known. She's fiercely committed to the truth. She's so fun to work with. She's the most fun to do everything with. She is genuinely curious about people and the world. She makes everything in my life better - all my favorite songs and movies, vacations and sunsets and Chinese food," Long penned. "She is my joy. She is my best friend. Happy Birthday HANSAAAY."
In return for the lengthy post, Bosworth also shared a romantic note on her social media on the very same day to thank him. "You are my love and my light, my peace and my thrill," she wrote. "Thank you for holding my hand when we sleep. Thank you for tying my shoelaces when you notice they are undone. Thank you for making me laugh so hard I have to leave the room. Thank you for showing me what love is and for making this the best birthday ever xX," she wrote in the caption of the post, alongside a yellow heart symbol.
The compilation of images showed the couple kissing while holding a champagne glass, enjoying meals and drinks, and holding their cat in the backyard. The 10-carousel post also included an all-smiles picture of the couple in the car while another photo had them both kissing in front of a fountain.
Their actor friend, Aaron Paul, was among the many to comment on Long's love letter. "My god I love this love story. Love to you both my friends. So damn happy you found each other," wrote the Breaking Bad actor.
Bosworth and Long reportedly met while working on a project in Arkansas in 2022. The pair sparked relationship rumors in March after being spotted in Los Angeles. They made their relationship official in May after posting a picture of them together sharing a Guinness beer in Ireland. Bosworth was previously married to Michael Polish. The former couple tied the knot in 2013 and spent nearly a decade together before parting ways in July, as per the Daily Mail.
