Cash Warren’s adorable tribute to wife Jessica Alba made us ugly cry

Jessica Alba

Jessica Alba is married to Cash Warren and he’s just revealed himself to be a total husband-shaped champ. He’s penned an “open post” to Jess and shared it on his Instagram, and honestly, there’s barely a dry eye in the house.

Cash flow

Cash and The Honest Co founder Jess are parents to four-month-old Hayes, nine-year-old Honor and six-year-old Haven.

The dad-of-three put pen to paper – or thumb to screen, really – the night before Jess’ birthday as his family were all snuggled up in bed asleep. The mushy, heartfelt words just tumbled out with Cash keen to celebrate the little things, the big things and all the gosh-darned FEELS he shares with – and about – the woman he married.

“My love. It’s the eve of your birthday, you’re sleeping, our daughters are next to you in our bed, and I couldn’t think of a better time to write you a short note,” he began. That’s when we started crying, FYI.

“I say it every year, but I’ll never get used to how quickly time flies.”

I wrote this last night :) My love – It’s the eve of your birthday, you’re sleeping, our daughters are next to you in our bed, and I couldn’t think of a better time to write you a short note. I say it every year, but I’ll never get used to how quickly time flies. We can turn tiny moments into landmark events or we can accept that landmark events are simply fleeting moments. Either way, I’m slowly realizing there’s no real way to keep tabs on life….sadly, the specific memories fade but somehow we’re able to hold on to the feelings those memories create. And those feelings shape who we are and who we’ll become. If I could thank you for one thing on your birthday, I’d thank you for giving me all the feelings. Today marks the first day of your next year of life and I promise to continue to cherish our tiny moments and our landmark events… Cheers to you and another 365 days of having all the feels! Happy Birthday my babe!! – me

All the feels!

Cash explained that, at the end of the day, his life with Jess and their kiddos came down to some pretty giant feelings. Feelings he was very grateful for …

“We can turn tiny moments into landmark events or we can accept that landmark events are simply fleeting moments. Either way, I’m slowly realizing there’s no real way to keep tabs on life … Sadly, the specific memories fade but somehow we’re able to hold on to the feelings those memories create. And those feelings shape who we are and who we’ll become.”

*Insert even more tears. Sniffle.* 

“If I could thank you for one thing on your birthday,” Cash continued, “I’d thank you for giving me all the feelings. Today marks the first day of your next year of life and I promise to continue to cherish our tiny moments and our landmark events.”

Nawwww. * Blows nose loudly *
