"The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air" actor Alfonso Ribeiro took to his Instagram to pay a touching tribute to his wife and mother of his three kids as she turned 40.


Alfonso Ribeiro has enjoyed a remarkable career on the screen since featuring in his breakout role in "The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air." Aside from his acting skills, Ribeiro has another aspect of his life that he treats with much care and attention - his family.

In his heartfelt message, the 49-year-old remarked that he was lucky to have his wife and mother of three in his life. He affectionately called Unkrich a fantastic mother and wife and wished them another forty years together. He wrote:

" You are a fantastic wife mother and best friend. To another 40 more trips around the sun with you."


Delighted fans complimented the beautiful Ribeiro couple and wished Unkrich a happy birthday. Many others noted how beautiful the couple looked together and gushed over their love.

Since the movie star shared the post, it has kept his fans glued to his page. The loved-up post has racked up an impressive number of comments and likes less than a day since the post was shared.

More than anything else, his fans enjoy seeing him in " daddy mode."


One of Ribeiro's fans echoed the actor's tribute and added that Ribeiro has a beautiful wife. Another fan left a touching message for Unkrich and called her a charming mom.

Many fans wished the forty-year-old well in her new age, while a kind fan remarked that he wished the couple better years together and called them an inspiration.


The 49-year-old went beyond social media to color his wife's big day. In a post Unkrich shared on her Instagram, fans were given a glimpse of how the father of four spiced up his girl's day.

The mother of three shared a series of heartwarming pictures which showed how the day went for her. In her caption to the post, she thanked the movie star for a special fortieth birthday.


Ribeiro has put in a lot of effort to build a family with his forty-year-old wife. The actor was formerly married to Robin Stapler, with whom he shares his oldest child.

Since his marriage in 2012, the "Dancing With The Stars" alum has not stopped flaunting his love for his new world with Unkrich, with whom he has three kids.


For fans who wonder who the woman who has captured Ribeiro's heart is, Unkrich is reportedly a professional writer from Swedesburg, Iowa. Her romance with the 49-year-old started in 2011, and a year later, they walked down the aisle.

Years back, the couple was excited to announce to their fans that they had welcomed their daughter Ava Sue Ribeiro who is their third child together.

The actor has been loud about wanting to see his kids grow while he is still young. More than anything else, his fans enjoy seeing him in "daddy mode."
