The couple, who got together on Season 18 of The Bachelor, celebrated the former soccer player's 33rd birthday with a party at Flamingo Theater Bar. Juan Pablo, whose birthday was August 5, told People, "I'm very happy and blessed to spend the first of many birthdays with Nikki. She's a wonderful woman — smart, caring, who treats my daughter amazingly well. She's the one who has to deal with this Latin guy, with a culture that she sometimes doesn't understand. She's been able to handle it well!"
We're happy to hear it! Nikki had nothing but sweet things to say too. "To think back to a year ago when he was announced as The Bachelor, and then to be here a year later with him; it all seems so surreal. I was really excited to be able to spend Juan's birthday with him here in Miami," Nikki told People. She added on Twitter, "Happy Birthday to my other half. Thank you for being an amazing, loving, and patient man. #birthdayboy." These two seem smitten!
At the party, Juan and guests enjoyed a four-tiered cake made by Beatriz Otero from Elite Cake Creations. The dessert was decorated with a soccer ball and photos of his life and family, including his 5-year-old daughter Camila. So sweet!
What's just as sweet? When Grammy-winning salsa singer Obie Bermúdez performed Juan and Nikki's song, "Adventures in Loving You." Nikki said, "That was definitely my favorite part of the night, as that song brings back a lot of fun memories. The only thing missing was maybe a little country music, like Luke Bryan or Jake Owen!"
Sounds like quite the, ahem, bachelor party! Sound off with your happy birthday wishes in the comments.
