Fans of the Fair Game actress joined her as they wished the growing teenager a happy birthday in the comments section. “That is just how I remember him. Happy birthday!” one user wrote. “Happy birthday to your son @presleygerber, Cindy! I’m sure you’re the best mom and you’ve made the life of your children full of happiness! Let it be so forever!”

Other fans seemed to point out the fact that Cindy still looks almost exactly identical to how she did when the picture was taken less than two decades ago. “You can never tell if this is Cindy now or Cindy 15 years ago … she never ages!” We couldn’t agree more!

Cindy’s special birthday shout-out for Presley comes as no surprise considering the brunette beauty is always looking after her kids. In fact, the doting mother of two — who shares son Presley and daughter Kaia Gerber, 21, with husband Rande Gerber — once revealed how she raised her kids to grow up with the same morals she did.

“Kids don’t always listen, but they are always watching what you do,” the According to Jim actress dished to Town & Country in May 2018. “If you’re polite to people, they learn to be polite. If you make family time a priority, they don’t even question spending time together. If I’m constantly berating myself in front of them—I look old, I have more wrinkles every year, I can’t have that dessert because I’ll get fat—then they learn to do the same thing. You lead by example.”

We hope Presley enjoyed his 17th birthday with his mama, family and friends!
