Jeffrey Dean Morgan is all about his wife on Mother's Day.

On Sunday, May 13, the Walking Dead star honored One Tree Hill alum, Hilarie Burton, with a heartfelt message posted to Instagram.

Prepare yourself: It's a good one.

"Happy Mother’s Day to all moms out there. But to this mama.... on behalf of myself, gus, and George... we all want to thank you," Morgan expressed. "With every ounce of who we all are... for being the best mom in the whole world. For making our lives the best, and most special they could ever be. You’ve created and molded the family I figured I could only dream of... I figured wrong. I love you. I love you for everything. But how I love you for this family you’ve given us. You’re the best, smartest, prettiest, funniest, meanest, most amazing mom ever ever. Happy Mother’s Day Hil. I’ll see you tonight. Xxxxxxx P.s. make sure gus feeds animals and gets eggs!"

Sobbing yet?

Burton commented on the post with a sweet thanks of her own.

"Aw, daddy.......tears. I' a blubbering fool!" she wrote. "Thanks for making me a mama. Come on home to us. I love ya Xxxxxxx"

While Morgan couldn't be with his partner on her big day, he made sure to make her feel special. It's almost impossible to imagine this coming from the same guy who plays Negan, am I right? RIP Glenn Rhee.

Booom!

Burton and Morgan are parents to son Augustus Morgan, born in 2010, and daughter George Virginia Morgan, born in February of 2018.

In March 2018, Burton spoke out on infertility struggles the couple had dealt with leading up to George's birth.

"As some of you know, @jeffreydeanmorgan is off in Europe getting ready to do some big conventions," Burton wrote. "And he's self aware enough to know his track record for 'spilling the beans' isn't so great (bless his heart!). So before he starts tripping up in an attempt to maintain our privacy, he asked that I go ahead and post something about our little girl's birth."

"But before I do that, there's something I really want to say to all the women out there who are trying," she continued. "It took a long time for Jeffrey and I to have this baby. The first time I got pregnant, it took a year and a half. I surprised him on Christmas with baby Seahawk booties. We cried. We celebrated. We picked out names. And we lost that baby. More losses followed, and as so many couples know, it was heartbreaking. It still is heartbreaking. And every morning of the five years it took us, I'd open my computer at the kitchen table and see the news and I'd grow bitter over the endless parade of celebrities showing off their bumps and babies. I'd weep out of jealousy for how easy it was for them. Didn't they know something could go wrong? Didn't they know that there were other women out there struggling? It pained me to see the corporate sponsored baby showers and magazine covers capitalizing on this human miracle that wasn't happening for us."

It pained me to see the corporate sponsored baby showers and magazine covers capitalizing on this human miracle that wasn't happening for us. So when this pregnancy started, we were cautious. I didn't want to celebrate for fear of jinxing it. I didn't want a baby shower. I checked her heartbeat every day, up until the day she was born. And now that she is here, I just stare at her in wonder all day. I see her in her daddy's arms and I don't take any of it for granted. She screams bloody murder and I smile because she is so wildly alive. So now that folks know she's here, I don't want her birth to cause any other woman to weep at her kitchen table. If anything, my wish is that she would restore hope for others. Fertility is a fickle thing. And for the other couples out there who have had dark days, we want to introduce our miracle baby to you and send you our love and support in finding yours. Please meet George Virginia Morgan. She was born February 16th. Her daddy delivered her. We love her very much.
