Barring your 21st, your 30th birthday is one of the biggest birthday milestones there is. Which is why Chicago Bears quarterback Jay Cutler made sure his wife, Kristin Cavallari (whose former The Hills co-star Lauren Conrad just announced she’s going to be a mom), had an absolutely amazing one.

According to E!, Jay rented out Chicago’s Fulton Market Kitchen for an intimate party with roughly 50 of her closest friends. Decking the place out with festive balloons, cookies, cocktails and cupcakes, Jay made Kristin’s day (which started with a box of cupcakes!) extra special.

“This is the only somewhat decent picture I have from last night (and we’re both clearly sober) but Jay really went all out for my 30th birthday,” the designer (and now author) shared. “He threw the most amazing surprise party and made me feel so special and loved and I will forever be grateful for this man, my family and all my amazing friends. I am the luckiest girl in the world to have such incredible people in my life. <3”

Awwww, what a sweetheart! And it only gets better from here: Kristin’s off to LA now, where’s she’ll be on the Golden Globes red carpet Sunday night for E!. Not a bad way to kick off your 30s, eh?

Happy birthday, Kristin!
