Alan Thicke‘s wife Tanya and son Carter took to Instagram on Wednesday to wish the late actor a happy birthday on what should have been his 70th. The star of “Growing Pains” died in December at the age of 69 after suffering a ruptured aorta while playing hockey with Carter, 19. Tanya who is Carter’s stepmom posted a photo of the two of them having a romantic candlelit joint birthday dinner and wrote:
Happy Birthday to my angel, #2016 joint birthday celebration,They say 2 Pisces are internal soulmates…You are so missed my love……
Carter on his Instagram page shared a throwback photo of him as a child being carried on his dad’s shoulder. He wrote:
Missing you and our times together extra today. Enjoy your birthday margarita and rhubarb pie up there, relaxing in your robe watching ESPN. You are and always will be the man. Happy Birthday Pops.
