A king and queen are celebrating a big day. Alongside a sweet photo, Christopher Knight posted a lengthy birthday tribute to his wife.


Cara Kokenes just celebrated her 44th birthday. Husband Knight, however, seems to be more ecstatic about it than she is. 

On Sunday, "The Brady Bunch" actor shared an energetic post about how thrilled he was about his wife's big day. The post is found below.

Happy Birthday, Cara!

Knight, 61, called Sunday the "happiest day of the year." The actor wished his wife happiness while also showing an abundance of appreciation for her. 

He's also thankful that on her special day, he can "shout for all the world to hear how completely" he loves his wife. "My light, my warmth, my smile and my best friend," he called her. 

Knight closed out the post the same way he began by wishing his wife Happy Birthday. He added the hashtags "birthday girl," "love of my life," and "best friend."

A beautiful queen and her king

The picture attached featured two photos of Kokenes in a white dress next to Knight who wore a black suit. One held a red sign saying "Queen," and the other a sign saying "King" respectively.

The comment section was filled with users wishing Kokenes a Happy Birthday and other words of praise. The pair have been married nearly three years now. 

Kokenes, who reportedly works in technical sales, tied the knot with Knight in November of 2016. She is his fourth wife and they have no children together. 


Knight's three previous marriages 

Prior to her, Knight was married to model Adrianne Curry from 2006 to 2012. The pair met on VH1's "The Surreal Life" before starring on their own reality show, "My Fair Brady." 

After appearing on the "Dr. Phil Show," for their issues, the pair divorced due to irreconcilable differences in 2013. Curry has since gone on to marry voice-over actor Matthew Rhode.

Before that, Knight was married to Toni Erickson from 1994 to 2000. His first wife was Julie Schulman. The pair were married in 1989 and divorced in 1992. 

Look inside "A Very Brady Renovation"

Knight's celebratory post follows another shared milestone that's based on his role as Peter Brady in the 1970's sitcom he is best-known for. Other "Brady Bunch" cast members were also involved. 


Maureen McCormick, Eve Plumb, Susan Olsen, Mike Lookinland, and Barry Williams were the others involved in HGTV's renovation of the house used for the beloved show decades ago. 

The project, which involved transforming the interior of the building into a real-life replica of "The Brady Bunch" set, was completed earlier this year. 

In August, Knight posted a nostalgic photo for fans giving a first look at the final product. HGTV host Jason Pickens stood next to him in what appeared to be the living area of the house. 


Honoring the lost Bradys

While working in the house alongside the professionals, the cast honored deceased cast members Florence Henderson and Robert Reed in their own ways. 

According to Entertainment Weekly, Knight said that while taking the photo on the stairs, they felt the absence of "those who were missing." The show premiered back in September on HGTV.
