It was quite the 26th birthday for Glee’s Darren Criss (Blaine)! While we were telling you all the reasons we adore the actor, he was on set getting a surprise gift from his biggest fans!

“Happy 26th Darren Criss, The Sky's The Limit” was the birthday greeting — but it wasn’t in a text or tweet. Instead, a plane towing a huge banner with the message flew over the Glee set Tuesday, where Darren was filming!

“What an unexpected and unbelievable birthday present. Thank you so much for all who made it happen. @TheCrissProject,” Darren wrote on his Twitter with a link to the video of the plane flying across the set!

Later tweeting “the close up pic,” Darren couldn’t stop thanking his fans, the cast, and the crew.

 

“To my @GLEEonFOX family, it’s been a great birthday – big thanks for making it so nice to be at work today,” he tweeted. “And thank you to everyone for all the nice messages from home and around the world! Incredible. I feel spoiled. RTs are on their way.”

 
As promised, he later retweeted some videos and messages his fans shared with him for his birthday!

Was Darren Criss’s birthday the perfect “teenage dream” come true or what?
