A very happy birthday goes out to Real Housewives of New Jersey star Melissa Gorga, who turns the big 3-5 on March 21. And you'll never believe how her husband, Joe Gorga, is helping her celebrate. 

On the morning of her birthday, Melissa took to Twitter to let her fans know that Joe had been sending some very sexy images her way. "Omg!! @joegorga is sending the craziest bday texts!" Melissa writes. "All pics of himself.. his muscles.. He's cracking me up..."

Wow. We're not sure if this is what anyone would consider to be a conventional birthday gift. Then again, who would say no to photos of Joe's muscles? Uh, not us. 

Melissa also has been getting tons of Twitter messages from her Bravo co-stars, and presumably these messages involve a lot less skin than Joe's texts. "Happy Birthday @melissagorga Have a wonderful day with your beautiful family," Kathy Wakile tweets. And Jacqueline Laurita writes, "Happy Birthday to my sexy, fun friend @melissagorga !!! I love you!XOXO! Enjoy your day!!"

Even former Real Housewives of Atlanta star Kim Zolciak is passing on the birthday love to Melissa. "Happy Birthday to the gorgeous @melissagorga enjoy your day doll!!! Xxoo," Kim writes. How sweet!

We wish Melissa all the best on her special day!
