Heather Locklear Shares Sweet Message to Daughter Ava on Her 21st Birthday
By Scott Baumgartner
Heather Locklear’s daughter, Ava Sambora, turned 21 on Thursday and the Melrose Place alum celebrated by posting a touching video dedicated to the birthday girl.
“Oh my gosh, I can’t believe my little baby’s birthday is today,” Locklear declared in the video as the camera pans over photo after photo of the mother-and-daughter pair. “Look at the baby! Oh my gosh, she’s growing up so quickly. I want to say happy birthday to my favorite person in the world — Ava. My princessa. My one and only.”
In the images, Ava ages before the viewer’s eyes, going from a tiny baby to a young adult.
“I just think your the kindest, funniest, smartest, most beautiful child in the world,” she continued. “And you turned out to be so wonderful. Well, you came to me that way. I love you. I want to squeeze you and kiss you and spank you 21 times!”
She ended her incredible clip by pretending to stumble upon a pair of cards lying face down, like in Blackjack.
“Let’s see, if you went Vegas what would you get?” she asked before flipping the cards to reveal an ace and a queen. “21! Ha! Happy birthday, baby.”
