Melissa Gilbert of Little House on the Prairie took time out of her day to wish her husband Tim Busfield a very happy birthday. The actress and Busfield, who is both an actor and director, have been married since 2013. While classic TV fans know her from playing Laura Ingalls, others will remember him from Thirtysomething and The West Wing. Yes, he also played a significant role in the Kevin Costner film Field of Dreams. Let’s take a look and see what Gilbert is saying to her husband.
Fans were filling up the comments section with lots of happy birthday wishes. Some, of course, remembered him from his earlier TV work. This is not the first time that she’s bragged about her husband. A while back, she shared some other pictures while declaring “how adorable is my hubby.” The Instagram snaps definitely show him in a relaxed state.
Hey, Busfield is noodling around on an acoustic guitar. We couldn’t get a good look or we would venture a guess what type of guitar he was playing. As someone who loves acoustic guitars, I’m always checking out to see what types others are playing. So, back in April, Gilbert celebrated her wedding anniversary with Busfield. They have been quite public in sharing their special moments together. It adds a special touch to the celebrity couple who work hard to keep themselves grounded.
