You do it all."

And he's thankful for her and the life they've built together. 

"So grateful to have our family and I am one lucky man - I know that seems obvious but it really is nice to say it out loud now and then when you're feeling it," the musician added in the post, which also featured a photo of Cameron holding a cat and smiling from ear to ear.
