Alongside the video, Hawn penned a heartfelt message for Russell as a tribute to him on the milestone birthday. She wrote that despite not getting married, their love for one another continued to grow. 

She described him in the most lovely way and called him lovable, childlike, and a great father. She added that she could not imagine her life without him. Part of her sweet message for Russell read:

"You’re a wild one, brilliant, lovable, childlike, perfectly maddening, a father supreme and deeply funny!"


She ended off her birthday message to Russell by saying that he was a catch and all hers with a red heart emoji. Fans wrote wishes for him in the comment section. 

Kate Hudson shared a lovely tribute for the man who raised her, and her three brothers, Olive Hudson, Boston Russell, and Wyatt Russell. 

They became an item later in life after they starred in "Swing Shift" in 1983.


She shared the most adorable throwback photo of her blended family and explained that his 70th birthday was a great time to gush about her pa, which she calls Russell. 

She started her lengthy message by wondering how different her life would be without him. Hudson shared what kind of dad he was when she was growing up and ended the message with:

"Happy Birthday Pa. How bout we give some big Hip Hip Hoorays to this wild man!"


Hudson's mom had met Russell when he was 16 years old, and she was 21 on the set of "The One and Only, Genuine, Original Family Band" in 1966. 

Russell and Hawn became an item later in life after they starred in "Swing Shift" in 1983. A few years later, they starred in "Overboard" together, a year after they welcomed their only son, Wyatt.

Hawn was previously married to Gus Trinkonis from 1969 to 1976. She then married Bill Hudson, and they welcomed their two children Kate and Oliver. The couple split in 1982. 

For his part, the "Escape From New York" star was previously married to Season Hubley from 1979 to 1983. The couple welcomed one son, Boston, together.
