Maksim Chmerkovskiy got the ultimate present for his birthday this year — his baby boy, Shai!

Taking to Instagram on Tuesday in honor of turning 37, the Dancing With The Stars pro couldn't help but gush about fatherhood and the importance of appreciating the little moments even when things don't go your way.

Chmerkovskiy went on to explain how being a dad has given him a "bigger purpose than ever before":

And of course his lovely fiancée Peta Murgatroyd shared her own wishes for Maks on his special day!

The dancer penned alongside a silly photo of the two (above):

"To my best friend…my partner, for the remainder of the most incredible years to come. You are forever the light that makes my soul ignite, you're the text book definition of my true soul mate. I never believed in one until I met you. My love for you is never ending ❤ #HappyBirthdayMaks"

Awww!

If you're not crying yet, Peta also opened up about Maks' natural parenting skills alongside a photo of him holding their baby boy:

So sweet!
