Ellie Eigenmann turns nine today, November 23.
It was Andi's way of celebrating nine years of having Ellie as a major motivation in her life.
The soon-to-be mother of three wrote, "I wouldn't trade having you for anything in this world my dearest Elle belle. I will forever be grateful that the universe gave me YOU."
Andi underlined how "more and more special" Ellie has become for her.
She thanked her older daughter for inspiring her to do her best as a mom "because that's what you deserve! Thank you so much for being YOU."
The part-time actress said she's honored to be her mother, expressing "sooo much joy" at how Ellie has grown to become "such an admirable lady" that fills her heart with pride.
She wrote, "I am in awe of the person you have become— an amazing, funny kid with a big big heart, and it has been such a privilege to be your mom!
"HAPPY BIRTHDAY ELLIE. You are soooo loved and cared for. Always, always."
Her dad Jake Ejercito, for his part, uploaded a short video of Ellie playing with bubbles through the years and wrote a short but sweet message for his "princess."
His caption read: "Who you are and who you're becoming is truly amazing to witness. Happy birthday to the coolest and loveliest in my galaxy! Love you love you, my princess x
Jake's sister and Ellie's aunt Jerika Ejercito also sent a touching message for the birthday girl.
Jerika, a mother to four boys, said in her message there is no reason for her to keep "trying for a girl" because she already has Ellie.
"Happy birthday to our one and only princess. You are growing so beautifully my love.
"Please, no need to rush...we still have lots of hatchimals to take care of and poly pocket to watch again and again.
"I love you so, so much our forever Princess"
