Although the status of La La and Carmelo Anthony's marriage is still up in the air, the possibly estranged spouses can still wish each a friendly happy birthday. On Friday (May 29th), La La penned a loving birthday message for Carmelo on Instagram, accompanied by a photo of the NBA player at a young age. In the post, La La tells Carmelo how special he is to her, possibly hinting that they've grown closer again since living in quarantine together. She also tells the story of the first time they went to Vegas together.

"Happy Birthday @carmeloanthony," she wrote. "I met you when u were 20 yrs old lying to me telling me you were 21 until we went to Vegas & your ass couldn’t gamble ‼️ Today you were blessed to celebrate 36 years young. Time flies for real..it’s so crazy‼️ Thank you for being a blessing in our lives. I love you." Since La La is nearly three years older than Carmelo, at the time that they met, she would have likely already been 23 years old.
