    Happy Birthday, Taylor Kinney!

    The Chicago Fire hunk is ringing in the big 3-3 today, so of course his longtime girlfriend Lady Gaga took to Twitter to send a sweet message to her man in honor of his special day.

    "Happy Birthday to my darling @TaylorKinney11 he plays a hero on TV but in real life he's my Hero," the 28-year-old pop star wrote, adding two heart emojis to the post.

    Ahead of Kinney's birthday, Gaga posted a new pic of the pair on her Instagram page, in which the two are cozying up together, looking like a happy couple in love (Taylor also reposted the image).

    The cute pic is a rare shot of the super-private couple, who seem to prefer to keep their romance out of the spotlight.

    No word yet how the TV star is celebrating, but he did take to his own social media page to thank fans for their well wishes in addition to Instagramming a black and white pic of himself outside of a church window. "Thank you all! Lots of love," he wrote before adding, "If anyone else has a B-day today, happy happy! Here comes the sun. God bless."

    Gaga and Taylor, who first met back in July 2012 on the set of the singer's "You & I" music video, rarely discuss their relationship in public, although they have opened up about their love for each other on a few different occasions.

    During an appearance on The Ellen DeGeneres Show back in November, the "Born This Way" beauty called her boyfriend a "hidden weirdo" and couldn't help but gush over her hunky beau.

    "He is extremely strange, actually, and we complement each other's weirdness," the "Dope" singer dished. "And you know, at the end of the day he's my best friend and having your lover be your best friend. I mean, it's the best thing ever. It's the best thing I can say about it."

    Kinney also shared the same sentiments while speaking with E! News in January. "I'm reserved. She's not. For whatever reason, it works," the actor revealed at the Golden Globes. "It works and that's that."

    Hope you two are celebrating together! Happy birthday, Taylor!
