Sofia Pernas is wishing Justin Hartley a happy birthday.

The actress, 31, shared a sweet photo of the This Is Us star on Instagram Friday in celebration of Hartley's 44th trip around the sun.

"Celebrating this man with my fav screen grab. That smile!!! Lights up my sky. Happy Birthday, حبيبي ❤️" Pernas wrote in the caption for the photo, in which Hartley smiles widely for the camera.

After a source confirmed to PEOPLE in June that the two actors had been dating "for several weeks," Pernas and Hartley made their relationship Instagram official on New Year's Eve.

"I'm happy with my career. I'm happy with my personal life," he said on Radio Andy, adding that while he doesn't necessarily mind attention on his personal life, he doesn't want to feed into it.

"If they're getting entertainment from that, I think it sort of comes with the territory, but I've also sort of always had this view that I will have a public life, but I will be very private about my personal affairs," he said at the time.

Hartley filed for divorce from Chrishell Stause in November 2019 after two years of marriage.

In September last year, Stause, 39, told PEOPLE that she was ready to start dating again. The Selling Sunset star is now dating Dancing with the Stars pro Keo Motsepe.
