Not to overshadow current Bachelorette Andi Dorfman’s 27th birthday celebration today, but original rose-doling gal Trista Sutter has set up some pretty stiff competition as far as the cute Bachelor Nation birthday pics go.

The 41-year-old mother of two is all about her family today, as April 3 marks daughter Blakesley’s fifth birthday! In honor of her beautiful little one, Mama T posted a TBT of husband Ryan Sutter — the firefighter she picked on Season 1 of The Bachelorette, over 10 years ago — holding son Max, who is holding Blakesley for the first time.

She captioned the too-cute shot, “#tbt The first time Max held his baby sister. #preciousmemories #alittlehelpfromdaddy #happybirthdayblakesley.” Take a moment, and say goodbye to your tear ducts.

Earlier today, Trista posted a cute pic of her little lady giggling as Trista lit the candle on a birthday doughnut (note to self: implement birthday doughnuts), captioning the shot with all the gushing adjectives she could fit. Sweetest, most nurturing, brave, enthusiastic, loving… we bet the darling nugget deserves every one of ‘em. Happy birthday, Blakesley!
