"I can't help it," she wrote. "I still see you exactly like this! I always believed you were my baby! My lil boy. You've always trusted me most, enough to braid that hair, enough to cut it. You ate whatever I made you. You would fall asleep right in my arms."

Rihanna went on to say: "I will never forget that summer I stayed home from camp so I could take care of you so mum could work! I'm so proud of the man you've become."

The superstar added: "You're such a smart, humble, kind, charming, sarcastic guy! And I love you so much! Keep making ya big sis proud and listen to mommy, she be knowing!"

Of course, Rihanna's devoted fans also wished Rajad a very happy birthday in droves, prompting him to tweet: "Thank you to everyone for the birthday wishes."

Rihanna and Rajad are known to be close. Last year, RiRi shared a picture of them on a shopping trip alongside the caption: "Spent the day with my favourite guy!!! #bestdayever."
