Terri J Vaughn's husband turned 42 and the actress paid a touching tribute to her "King." Here's what she had to say.
"Meet the Browns" star Terri J. Vaughn took to Instagram to celebrate her husband, Karon Riley's 42nd birthday with a sweet post.
The star shared a series of intimate photos of Karon and accompanied it with a sweet message celebrating him for his special day.
Riley is Vaugh's second husband with her first being with her college sweetheart. She married the football player in 2008 and they have been together ever since.
The bond between the pair is still strong to see, with the actress sharing a beautiful message for her husband as she posted some of her favorite photos of Riley adding:
"I love all parts of you, my love. I thank God for your existence, I thank you for existing with me! Happy birthday my Husband, my King."
While he may have gotten his start in football after retiring from the sport, Riley got into acting like his wife, snagging his first role in "35 and Ticking" opposite Kevin Hart and Meagan Good.
Vaughn opened up about their relationship, revealing that she is a hopeless romantic who loves being married and loves love.
She also stressed the importance of sex in her relationship.
Penning a piece for Essence, Vaugn admitted that her experiences in her first marriage taught her not only how to be comfortable in her own skin, but also to be aware of her shortcomings in a relationship.
The actress also spoke about the importance of communication, adding that she was happy that she was finally able to express herself freely and healthily. Vaughn said:
"We both have strong, independent and authentic identities, but because we trust each other, these are not threats to our union. Regular, open and respectful communication keeps us connected."

She also stressed the importance of sex in her relationship and highlighted financial incompatibility as a leading cause of divorce.
In April 2008, the couple welcomed their first child together, Kal'El Joseph Riley, who's also Vaughn's second child. Her eldest is Daylen from her previous relationship. The pair also have a daughter together, Lola Riley.
Last year, as Vaughn celebrated her 50th birthday, the actress marked the milestone by stripping down to her underwear for a stunning post shared to her Instagram.
The star's washboard abs and enviable figure wowed her fans and her new short haircut was done in celebration of her big day. She used the moment to reflect on her life and achievements.
