Little Joseph Kushner is one lucky guy. As the tyke kicked off his third birthday Friday, mom Ivanka Trump rang it in right, surprising him with their annual tradition - a delicious plate of pasta for two.

"Birthday tradition: Spaghetti lunch-date!," she captioned an Instagram snap of the two of them slurping down the sauce-covered noodles. In the shot, a sweatshirt-clad Trump munches on one end of a spaghetti noodle and feeds her son the other end as the tot sits at a dinner table with his eyes closed and his mouth wide.

While Joseph was not worried about getting messy as they enjoyed their meal together, the fashion mogul pulled her blonde locks back into a bun, keeping the food away from her mane and the gold earrings she paired with her top.

Prior to their spaghetti feast, Trump gushed over her son in a throwback Instagram photo of him as a baby, captioning it, "Happy birthday to my precious Joseph. You are such a loving little soul. I cannot believe that you are already 3 years old!"

Joseph is the middle child of Trump's three children, serving as big brother to 6-month old Theodore and little brother to 5-year-old Arabella.

They grow up so fast.
