Fans send "Criminal Mind's" star, Kirsten Vangsness celebratory messages after she shares a special post for her mother's birthday.


Kirsten Vangsness is honoring her mother, Barbara Mary Marconi on her birthday with a heartfelt post, adding a bit of humor to the message, she says:

"It's my mom's birthday and she will see this as she is on Instagram and follows me, but won't give me her handle because she's odd." 


Making a joke about how odd she thinks her mother is, Kirsten sarcastically says that she looks nothing like Barbra and even pokes fun at her maternity saying, "she's probably not my real mother."

A lot of her fans might disagree with the that statement, while sending well wishes to her mother, some fans couldn't help but notice how much they look alike.

Another fan also agreed on the resemblance between mother and daughter and tried to convince her saying:

"You actually do look very much alike. Happy Birthday Kristen's Mum!"


Born to Barbara and Errol Leroy Vangsness she of Norwegian and Italian descent. Adding to her joke about Barbara not being her real mother, she continues her birthday message saying:

"But I love her a lot and she's wonderful and has grown into being an extraordinary person in the time I have known her. Happy Birthday to my very own mom, I am happy I lived in your uterus (maybe)."


Barbara's birthday definitely gives the "Criminal Minds" star a reason to celebrate after an emotional start to the year after it was announced that season 15 of Criminal Minds would be the last season for the show. 

In May, she shared an emotional post about her last table read for the show. Always upbeat like her character, she still upbeat as she smiled with the show's crew member's.

The final episodes of "Criminal Minds" will air in 2020. Kirsten not completely out of a job, since starring on the show, she says many opportunities have opened up for her.

She also works as a playwright, stars in theatre productions. In 2016 she also partnered up with friends and opened up a distillery called the "Blinking Owl Distillery."
