Don Diamont from Y&R Is All Smiles in Pictures from Son Alexander's 25th Birthday Celebration
The 'Young and the Restless' star, Don Diamont, celebrated his son, Xander's 25th birthday with a funny caption about his "baby" and shared pictures from a dinner he threw in honor of his son's special day.
"Happy 25th birthday baby boy!?That’s right! 25 and still my baby @zanderdiamont ! But changing your diaper is OUT OF THE QUESTION!!!?."
Don showed off a picture posing with the birthday boy at his celebratory dinner. In a follow-up image, he shared a throwback picture of him holding a diaper-wearing Zander that went perfectly with his joke about not changing diapers.
The post showed Don and Zander sitting at a table surrounded by his young friends. Zander's girlfriend had the honor of presenting him with his birthday cake as she posed with him while holding a sweet treat in her hand.
Many fans commented on the picture by wishing Zander a happy birthday. Showing off their dark features in their side by side picture, one fan gushed over how young Don looked and joked:
"Wow! You must have had him when you were only 10 years old???? ❤?Happy birthday Zander!"

Unlike his stylish father, Zander opted for a more casual look for his birthday and wore sweat pants, a hoodie, and a baseball cap.
He layered his outfit with a gray plaid blazer and still kept it sporty and yet comfortable with white lace-up sneakers.
Family is a big part of Don's life because he lost his father at a young age, and brought together a large family with his second wife, Cindy Ambuehl. It is something he has always been proud of, he gushed:
"Being a dad is something I always wanted to be. When I was a kid, I had valued my relationship with my dad, and I lost that pretty young. I wanted that and I thought it was very important."
Parenthood has been such an enlightening experience for Don that in 2018 he wrote a book about his life and parenting called "My Seven Sons and How We Raised Each Other: (They Only Drive Me Crazy 30% of the Time)."
It is reported, through his book, Don hoped readers will learn more about him and the experiences that have influenced his parenting. He said he also hoped that parents will learn to make their children their priority.
