"Wish I could cuddle you and celebrate this day with you but we will leave those for another time."
The dancer continued to write: "In the meantime hope you enjoy your day and have a full, love filled day.
"Keep being that fun, ambitious and humble soul I love and adore HAPPY BIRTHDAY BROTHER FROM ANOTHER MOTHER #howmanybirthdaysareinMay #happybirthday."
