Chrissy Metz is one lucky lady!

The This Is Us star was treated to a surprise birthday dinner courtesy of her boyfriend, Josh Stancil, at Beauty & Essex in Los Angeles on Saturday. 

Stancil led Metz into the restaurant under the impression that it was just an intimate dinner for the two of them, but she was surprised to see eight friends at the table as well. 

The delicious meal included grilled cheese, smoked bacon and tomato soup dumplings, kale and apple salad, and oven braised chicken meatballs.

Her onscreen family also reached out for her birthday on Friday.

“Happiest Bday to this gem  of a human & friend,” Mandy Moore wrote on Instagram, alongside a cute photo of the two. “You are such a gift in every way, @chrissymetz and I’m beyond thrilled that the whole world gets to see and experience it for themselves! Enjoy your day!!”

Sterling K. Brown wrote on Twitter, “It's @ChrissyMetz 's Birthday!!!!! Happy Birthday, Sister!!!” 

Metz and Stancil, a camera man, met on the set of the hit NBC drama last year. 

"We see each other whenever I’m working," Metz shared with ET in August. "He’s still texting me like, 'I hope you have a great day. I’ll see you soon.' He’s a little gem… It’s pretty wonderful."
