Simon took to Instagram on June 30 to open up about the cosmic nature of him and Porsha meeting each other. "The moon and the sun must have been in alignment when we met and decided fairly quickly, I might add that we wanted to be together. I call that moving with 'intention and purpose,'" he gushed in the post, which featured a collection of photos from Porsha's 40th birthday party last month. "One Follower commented recently on one of my [posts] and crystallized this point by saying and I quote, 'Love really is a beautiful thing. I’d rather have it and be hated for it, than be lonely and miserable with people who can’t find it.'"

The Real Housewives of Atlanta fiancé went on to share that he immediately knew he had found someone special in Porsha. "I found love in you and I claimed it INSTANTLY. My love for you Porsha has not diminished one bit, in fact, it has grown exponentially. I make a public declaration of my feelings because I want many others like us to follow their hearts and be 'purposeful and intentional' [every day] because God made no promise that at any time certain, love and happiness would show up and make a grand entrance into our lives and declare its arrival," Simon concluded his post. "I want us to live our lives like [every day] is our last. I challenge anyone with a [heartbeat] to lead with love for a change. You might find someone you are equally yoked with if you travel this road. God bless."

"Love you baby," Porsha wrote in response to Simon's lovely message in the comments section.

If you follow the RHOA couple on social media, you know that all of their posts about each other are always this heart-melting, including Simon's birthday wishes for Porsha after she turned the big 4-0 on June 22. "Happy Birthday my love. God is always on time, and has his purpose for our lives. You are my twin in every significant aspect of life. Your laugh is contagious and your tears touch the depths of my soul. We are one of a kind," Simon wrote in the post, which featured photos and videos of him and Porsha. "As long as we continue to love, understand and respect each other, there is nothing on planet earth that can come between us and the love we have for each other. Now, let’s love live and travel."

Porsha commemorated her big birthday in a private celebration with Simon, along with Shamea Morton, Drew Sidora, and other friends, in Atlanta on June 22.

After showering Simon with love for his 57th birthday earlier this spring, he returned the favor by helping to organize a "P Island"-themed party for Porsha's 40th on June 25, according to PEOPLE. "He did a wonderful job and paid so much attention to detail," Porsha told the publication earlier this week, adding, "It was an amazing night and one I will always remember. Truly special!"

In addition to ringing in her 40th with Simon and many familiar faces to Bravo fans, Porsha has also been marking her big birthday with several stunning looks, including a chic black bikini
