The Real Housewives of New York City mogul wished her boyfriend Paul the happiest of birthdays in a touching tribute post on Instagram on Monday, July 29. "Buon compleanno, ti amo!" Bethenny began her post, which means "happy birthday, I love you!" in Italian.

Bethenny continued her birthday tribute to Paul by showing how much he means to her, her daughter Bryn, and, of course, her dogs Biggy and Smallz. "Happy Birthday, Paul. You are such a brilliant, sweet, beautiful, kind, hilarious person. You have enriched my life immeasurably. You make me laugh to the point of tears," Bethenny gushed. "You embrace my life, my spirit, my daughter, my career, my goals, and my choices. The very few people who truly know you are the luckiest people in the world. You have literally and figuratively saved my life. Peanut and I, and @biggysmallz, love you so much and are so lucky to have you in our lives. Have the most incredible day ever!!!! May all of your wishes come true!"

The post also featured several photos of Bethenny and Paul from their beautiful Italian getaway, including one incredibly romantic snap of the couple sharing a smooch.

Paul shared his gratitude for Bethenny's sweet sentiment in the comments to the post on Instagram. "Thank you for the best birthday! I love you, [Peanut] and the [dogs]," Paul wrote, along with "#luckiestmanintheworld."

As if our hearts weren't already about to burst, Bethenny has also been documenting her vacation with her boyfriend in her Instagram Story. In one video, Paul can be seen carving "P [loves] B" into a wall.

Bethenny and Paul began dating in 2018, and he has been there for the New York Housewife during one of her most trying years ever, which included the passing of her former fiancé, Dennis Shields, as well as an allergic reaction that ended up not being fatal thanks to Paul's quick thinking and springing into action.

Bethenny opened up about how Paul has changed her life during an interview on LIVE with Kelly and Ryan earlier this month in which she shared that she now feels "happy in way that's different" and "balanced." "My boyfriend's very calm and centered and balancing," she shared. "And I'm just settled."
