Meanwhile, Galavis was very happy to have his girl celebrate with him and said he looks forward to spending many more birthdays with her.

"She's a wonderful woman — smart, caring, who treats my daughter amazingly well," Galavis said. "She's the one who has to deal with this Latin guy, with a culture that she sometimes doesn't understand. She's been able to handle it well!"
