Our hearts can't deal! 

Shakirais celebrating her father's 85th birthday with some adorable family photos, and we're melting. 

"Happy 85th Birthday, papi!!!" she wrote in Spanish along with a photo of herself and her father smiling at the camera as she gently holds his face. 

The singer then shared a photo of herself with her father and mother and captioned it saying, "Thank you all for your warm messages full of beautiful wishes for my dad on his birthday!"

Gracias a todos por sus mensajes de cariño y buenos deseos para mi papa en su cumple!! Muah! Shak

At her father William Mebarak Chadid's book presentation for "Al Viento y al Azar" in 2013, the singer called him her "weakness." 

"In Barranquilla, my dad isn't Shakira's father but rather I'm the daughter of William, and he's the best father life could possibly have given me. My cornerstone, my best friend, not only in my career but in life," Shakira said to the crowd. 

Happy birthday, William!
