Miley Cyrus turned 23 on Monday, and her proud papa Billy Ray sent his daughter a sweet birthday message with an adorable throwback pic.

“Happy birthday @MileyCyrus!” Billy Ray captioned a photo from his infamous days as a mullet-sporting rock star, holding his baby girl. “You've already had such an incredible year and I know that 2016 is gonna be even bigger!!!!! #HappyBirthdayMiley.”

The musical family has an adorable history of social media birthday wishes. Earlier this year, Miley posted a pic of the Cyrus gang celebrating Billy Ray’s 54th birthday.

“Dadaz birffffday brought a bunch of freaxxx togethhhha!!!!! 💖💖💖💖💖,” Miley wrote on an Instagram pic, which loosely translates to an explanation of how she, mom Trish, and siblings Trace, Braison, and Noah gathered to celebrate her father’s big day.
