McCarthy — whose birthday is Saturday, one day after her husband's — was similarly honored by Falcone on Instagram last year for her big day.
The actor and director posted a snapshot of his wife playing with a puppy while lying on the floor, looking at the camera with a smile.
"Happy Birthday Mooch ❤️ so thankful I get to lay on kitchen floors with you + dogs (and kids) for the rest of our lives 🎉🎉🎉," he wrote at the time.
Ahead of celebrating her 15th wedding anniversary with Falcone back in 2020, the actress told PEOPLE that her husband still makes her giddy.
“It’s [about] finding someone who you just absolutely are better with. He’s nothing but supportive, and he’s super smart,” she said of her husband. “He makes me gut-laugh, like crazy gut-laugh, four or five times a day. I hit the jackpot!”
Noting that Falcone “leads with nothing but kindness,” McCarthy said she is also thankful for his strong presence in their daughters’ lives.
“I just think if they ever meet somebody and that little red flag goes off, the bell is gonna sound even louder because they have Ben as their baseline,” she said. “They’re gonna pick well, whoever they end up with, you know? I want them to have someone utterly kind who roots them on.”
