It's Jennifer Garner's 50th birthday and she got the best surprise she could have asked for.

American actor Jennifer Garner celebrated her 50th birthday a few days early when she was surprised by her celebrity idol, singer Donny Osmond.

Garner, known for her starring roles in the comedy 13 Going on 30 and television series Alias, posted a video to her Instagram of herself getting a special birthday surprise.

Watch the video here:

In the video, Garner is sitting in a restaurant watching a special video her admitted childhood celebrity crush Donny Osmond filmed for her, in which he wishes her a happy 50th.

The surprise doesn't end there, though.

Little does Garner know that while she is star-struck watching the video, Osmond is actually sneaking up behind her to surprise her with a cake reading "13 going on 50! Love, Donny!"

He shouts:

“Jennifer! It’s your birthday!”

When Garner sees Osmond, she is awestruck and claims she has to remove her sweater due to being "so hot." They embrace and Osmond proceeds to sit with her and the two sing a rendition of the 1975 Donny and Marie hit Make the World Go Away.

Osmond even invited Garner to be his "special guest onstage" at his next concert.

The viral Instagram post is captioned:

"My first (pre)birthday surprise was a doozy—the one and only, legend in his own time, object of my childhood adoration and devotion—@donnyosmond showed up to knock my purple socks off."
“He took an hour and a half of his day to sit with me, sing my favorites, and to give me a master class on how to be a class act."
“Thank you, Donny. 💜 Hi, @marieosmond. ☺️ I hope to meet you someday, Debbie.”

Instagram users, including notable celebs such as Gwyneth Paltrow and Rita Wilson, are feeling the love.

Garner has been a long-time super-fan of Osmond.

In fact, in 2019 Garner commented on a throwback video of the Osmonds performing on stage with Cher that Donny was her “number one biggest crush of all time," to which he jokingly responded it was “miraculous that those jumpsuits didn’t scare you away.”

Osmond took to TikTok to follow up on Garner's Instagram video.

He said:

“Surprising fans is one of my favorite things to do, so when I had the opportunity to surprise the lovely @Jen Garner for her 50th birthday, I was overjoyed.”

Garner has also been engaging in some insightful wisdom on Instagram in preparation for her mid-life milestone.

She wrote:

“Wisdom from Mom—happiness is your own responsibility."
“The life you’re living while you wait for the grade, the college, the job, the man, is your actual life. Decide to enjoy it and work towards your own peace and contentment.”
