Michael Strahan is paying tribute to his mom on her birthday.

On Tuesday, the former New York Giants defensive end, 52, celebrated his mother Louise’s big day with a sweet Instagram post that offered a glimpse into her festivities.

“Happy birthday to my momma!! So much fun celebrating you! Momma got a spa day and a great meal!! Love you, Lou!! ❤️,” he captioned the post, which began with a video of himself and other loved ones singing happy birthday to Louise around a table as she was presented with a cake topped with six candles. 

"That’s a German chocolate cake!” Louise noted of the sweet treat, which had been piped with the words ‘Happy Birthday Momma’ in chocolate.

The clip was followed by a smiling snap of Strahan and his mom posing with their arms around one another, as well as a shot of her gifts and flowers.

It’s not the first time Strahan has paid tribute to his mother on her birthday. Last year, the TV personality also wished his “beautiful mom” a happy birthday on Instagram and shared a series of throwback snaps of the pair together, including from his time with the Giants.

"You have always been a steady rock full of love and hugs,” he wrote. “I’m the luckiest man alive to call you my mom and I hope you feel as much love as you give on your Birthday!! Love you, Lou!! ❤️❤️❤️❤️ P.s. next time, I’ll let you win at cards.”
