Thirty-four years ago today, Reba McEntire gave birth to her only child, Shelby Blackstock—and the country music singer marked the milestone by sharing a photo with her lookalike son via social media.

On Friday, Feb. 23, McEntire took to Instagram with a birthday tribute for Shelby, whom she shares with her ex-husband, Narvel Blackstock.

"I sure feel a lot better today than I did 34 years ago! :)," she joked before reflecting on her motherhood experience. "From the first second I found out I was pregnant, up to today, this child is one of the biggest blessings of my life."

The "I'm a Survivor" songstress concluded: "Thank you, God for letting me experience being a mama. I love you, Shelby, with all my heart mind and soul.❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️."

In the comments, Shelby chimed in with a sweet acknowledgment, writing, "❤️ love you!!"
