"To my incredibly strong wife," he wrote. "For two years I watched you endure some of the hardest things a husband could ever witness. Going through the ups and downs of pregnancy all in the hopes that just maybe, with a little help from up above, we would get to this point. I'll never forget the moment You asked me what I wanted for my birthday, I said nothing. But deep down inside I knew what I really wanted. So on January 28th 2019 when I walked out of that bathroom with that positive test I already knew that Saoirse was coming back to us. I just want to thank you for giving me the life, love, and family that I always wanted. You are a true warrior and I love you."
On Saoirse's first birthday, the family celebrated with custom balloons and a red cake. Nick shared a photo on Instagram captioned: "One day hopefully you'll be able to look back on Instagram and see all these silly little stories we shared. 🥰🥰🎂🎂❤️❤️ Happy first Birthday Saoirse. Love, Daddy, Odin and Mommy."
