Birthday cards are so last year.
Forget choosing the perfect verse or the effort of licking an envelope, an online nod on social media is the new trend.
Irish footballer Shane Long’s wife Kayleagh posted a photo collage of herself and her husband on the social media network and wrote, “Happy Birthday to my gorgeous hubby Shane Long gonna have a lovely family day!”
The montage included snaps of family holidays, Kayleagh and Shane’s wedding day and the couple enjoying the music festival Oxegen.
Kayleagh later joked with her Twitter followers as one mentioned her footballer husband “wasn’t that tall”.
“He’s 5’11, I’m 5’3,” Kayleagh replied, joking she always believes “good things come in small packages”.
Amy Huberman wished her husband Brian O’Driscoll a ‘Happy Birthday’ yesterday with a selection of tweets.
“Shall we all jump out and shout HAPPY BIRTHDAY to Brian O’Driscoll?!,” the actress tweeted yesterday morning.
She later followed it up with a photo of Brian’s advertisement with CityJet and wrote, “GO SHORTY, IT’S YOUR BIRTHDAY!”
