Coloured hair, shaved head, dirt bikes, tutus, power tools and flower picking … a look through her parent’s social media posts proves that Pink’s daughter Willow is every bit the legendary punk princess we expected her to be as she turns nine!
And daddy, Carey Hart could not be prouder. On his daughter’s ninth birthday, 44-year-old Carey shared the most adorable tribute to Willow and gave a nod to her awesome mum while he was at it.
Alongside two images – one of Willow as a sweet toddler and another of her with her freshly buzzed hair, aviator sunglasses, hot pink wetsuit and flare life vest – the proud dad shared some beautiful words.
“My sweet daughter willow. Where do I start,” the former Motorcross competitor penned.
“You have shown me what love of a child is all about. You changed my life from the moment your mama was pregnant. I always wanted to be a father and thank you for choosing (sic) me as your papa.”
And while the sentiment was mostly sweet, dad Carey kept it real too.
“You impress me everyday you walk this planet,” he wrote. “You are smart, thoughtful, compassionate, full of piss and vinegar, physical, and a lil shit!!!!”
“You are gonna change the world one day, munchkin,”
Like her fierce mamma, Willow is one kick-arse little lady. From picking up tools to build fences, riding dirt bikes, choosing her own incredible fashion and being a loving big sister, Willow is exhibiting all the traits of someone who knows exactly who they are, and Dad Carey has noticed it all.
“One of the biggest joys I have with you is watching you grow into your own independent person each day that passes.
“You are gonna change the world one day, munchkin. I could not me more proud and in love with you. Have a great 9th birthday.”
And mum Pink, who recently recovered from a bout of coronavirus alongside son Jameson, got a nod from her adoring husband too. “Thank you mama @pink for cooking a good one,” he penned.
Pink shared the heartbreaking news that both she and her young son, Jameson had been diagnosed with coronavirus in April.
“Two weeks ago my three-year old son, Jameson, and I were showing symptoms of COVID-19. Fortunately, our primary care physician had access to tests and I tested positive,” she wrote.
“My family was already sheltering at home and continued to do so for the last two weeks following the instruction of our doctor. Just a few days ago, we were re-tested and are now thankfully negative.

Pink, 40 detailed her “rollercoaster” battle with COVID-19 in an Instagram Live chat with author Jen Pastillof.
“Jameson has been really, really sick,” she said.
“I’ve kept a journal of his symptoms for the past three weeks and mine as well. He still, three weeks later, has a 100 (37.8C) temperature. It’s been a different rollercoaster for both of us, but Carey and Willow have been perfectly fine.”
Admitting to spending many nights crying and praying, Pink reminds us all that no one is safe from this virus.
“There were many nights when I’ve cried and I’ve never prayed more in my life,” she said.
“It’s funny, but at one point, I thought they promised us our kids would be OK. It’s not guaranteed. There is no one that is safe from this.”
Pink has yet to share a message for Willow’s birthday, but we’re sure the busy mum is as proud of her mini-me as Carey is.
We can’t wait to see how the family celebrated the little legend’s special day in isolation.
