Proud dad Carey Hart got a little emotional as he celebrated daughter Willow’s 9th birthday with wife Pink and their family. The former motorcycle racer insisted his little girl is going to “change the world one day” in a touching tribute via Instagram on Tuesday, June 2.
“My sweet daughter, Willow. Where do I start?” Carey, 44, wrote alongside two photos of his beloved kid. “You have shown me what love of a child is all about. You changed my life from the moment your mama was pregnant. I always wanted to be a father, [so] thank you for choosing me as your papa.”

My sweet daughter willow. Where do I start. You have shown me what love of a child is all about. You changed my life from the moment your mama was pregnant. I always wanted to be a father and thank you for choosing me as your papa. You impress me everyday you walk this planet. You are smart, thoughtful, compassionate, full of piss and vinegar, physical, and a lil shit!!!! One of the biggest joys I have with you is watching you grow into your own independent person each day that passes. You are gonna change the world one day, munchkin. I could not me more proud and in love with you. Have a great 9th birthday. Thank you mama @pink for cooking a good one.
“You impress me everyday you walk this planet,” the off-road truck competitor sweetly continued, praising Willow for being “smart, thoughtful, compassionate” and more. “[You are] full of piss and vinegar, physical and a [little] s—t!” he joked. “One of the biggest joys I have with you is watching you grow into your own independent person each day that passes.”
The doting dad — who shares Willow and son Jameson, 3, with the “What About Us” singer, 40 — concluded his heartwarming post by writing, “I could not be more proud and in love with you. Have a great 9th birthday. Thank you, mama @Pink, for cooking a good one.”
Besides being a loving father to his two kids, Carey is also a dedicated husband to Pink. The “Just Give Me A Reason” songstress gave fans a glimpse inside their sweet relationship when she showed off a gift he surprised her with after a show on her world tour in August 2019.
“Thank you babe … I told the audience about this last night and we all decided that hell has officially frozen over,” Pink raved alongside a bouquet of flowers and a note. In the lengthy letter, Carey praised his longtime spouse for being “so proud of the person” she is.
“You have pulled off the impossible,” the former motocross pro’s note read. “Record-setting tour, chart-topping album, amazing mother and loving wife.”
Pink and Carey may be living a life of bliss with their brood, but the Grammy Award winner hasn’t held back about the struggles it took to get there. During a previous appearance on Today, Pink opened up about the trials and tribulations they had to go through, including their brief split in 2008, in order to be in such a good place in their marriage.
“Carey and I have been in couples counseling almost our entire 17 years that we’ve been together,” she told Carson Daly in April 2019. “It’s the only reason we’re still together. We come from broken families, and we had no model for how [we are] supposed to keep this family together and live this crazy life … and there’s no book that says, ‘Here’s how to do this.’ So we go to counseling … and it works.”
Pink and Carey are such amazing parents.
