Chris Bukowski Turns 28! See How Much He’s Changed! (PHOTO)
Today is a #blessed day for Bachelor Nation, as one of our royalty is celebrating a birthday: Chris Bukowski, the guy who’s been on every Bachelor franchise series except The Bachelor, is turning the big 2-8!Which, side note, Chris as head rose giver is a total ABC-missed opportunity for a world of ugly-crying. Just sayin. So how did Elise Mosca’s ex — and Bachelor in Paradise’s O.G. shark — celebrate?
In so many ways. This past Saturday, he celebrated the one-year anniversary of his sports bar, Bracket Room. Then, he posted an adorable pic of his family with possibly the sweetest caption we’ve ever seen: “Every year for 28 years I wake up knowing that I already have the greatest birthday gift possible… and I am extremely grateful. #Family.” Awwww times infinity.
Then he gave us the greatest gift of all: a throwback pic of him as a young one, looking like the most adorably awkward little kiddo we just want to put in our pocket. Actually, Chris didn’t post it — a friend did — but he didn’t delete the post either, which makes it a gift from him, too. The poster captioned the photo “Happy Birthday @chrisjbukowski you have the same awkward body of an old Dutch woman.” Oh, friends.
Can you even believe that bowler in the pic is the same blue-eyed hottie who’s broken so many of Bachelor Nation’s hearts? Just looking at his little smiley cheeks will make our cheeks smile for the rest of the day.
Happy birfday, Chris! We forgot to get you something, so this article is our gift to you. Like it?
