  • Salma Hayek says her daughter is her "greatest teacher, greatest joy and greatest hope".
  • The 54-year-old wished Valentina a happy birthday with a sweet tribute on Instagram.
  • The nostalgic photo showed a young Valentina in her mothers arms.

Salma Hayek's daughter just turned 13 years old – and her famous mom can't help but gush over her "greatest joy".

Valentina Paloma Pinault is the actor's only child which she shares with husband and French businessman, François-Henri Pinault. Valentina was born on 21 September 2007, two years before the couple tied the knot.

"Valentina, I never wished for someone to exist as much as I wished for you to come into my life. Thank you for showing up thirteen years ago on a day like today, "Peace Day", to illuminate our lives," the Frida star wrote on Instagram on Monday with a throwback holding her baby girl.

"You are my greatest teacher, my greatest joy and my greatest hope. I loved you before you were born and I'll love you forever. Happy birthday, my shining star."

Though the 54-year-old rarely posts about her daughter, she did share a similar birthday post of Valentina all grown up before as she did her mom's hair. "You are so awesome and handy too!" she wrote.
