How time flies.

Ryan Phillippe and Reese Witherspoon’s daughter Ava turned 15 years old yesterday. And in honor of his little girl’s birthday, Mr. Phillippe (who turns the big 4-0 today) took to Twitter to share the sweetest message ever.

Phillippe, who goes by Old Peezy on the social media site these days, wrote in a series of tweets:

15 yrs ago today, was my last on, “The Way of the Gun”. A helicopter waited off set to transport me from the “Mexican brothel” in Utah to Cedars Sinai in Beverly Hills. With my stomach in knots, exhausted & dirty, covered in syrupy fake blood & shards of candy glass the heli found the pad and I was taken to an area to sterilize myself. I made it to my then wife’s bedside w/ two hours to spare beforemy baby girl first entered the world. 15 years ago I learned what love truly is
