Model Karlie Kloss – who recently confirmed on social media that she is engaged to her boyfriend of six years, Joshua Kushner, 33, who’s the businessman brother of Jared Kushner and the brother-in-law of Ivanka Trump – celebrated her 26th birthday yesterday.
She shared a photo of her celebration, posing on a rooftop in Manhattan holding up balloons announcing her new age. She wrote, “I have truly never felt more happy in my own skin and energized and excited for the future I want to build. I am so grateful for your love and support…I have a feeling 26 is going to be the best one yet.”
25 has been one of the most extraordinary years of my life. I am so grateful for all the ways that I’ve been challenged to grow and learn, all the new places I’ve been and friends I’ve made along the way. I have truly never felt more happy in my own skin and energized and excited for the future I want to build. I am so grateful for your love and support…I have a feeling 26 is going to be the best one yet 😉

Clearly fond of Kloss, Trump shared the celebratory image on her Instagram stories, writing a happy birthday message of her own on top of it.
“So incredibly happy for you Josh!” she wrote. “You and Karlie are blessed to have found one another. Here’s to a lifetime of love, laughter + adventure for you both!”
Kloss recently showed off her engagement ring in a sweet tweet to her fans.
Thank you ALL for your sweet wishes! ❤️🤗 So happy to share this news with you, I am feeling like the happiest girl in the world. Thank you for your love and support, it truly means the world to me. pic.twitter.com/ZvkRaFufUD

At first glance, the ring appears to be a cushion-cut diamond set on a diamond pavé band. No designer has been revealed, but we know this much is true: That baby is big.
Kloss and Kushner, who have been dating for six years, shared their happy news on Instagram in June, though People reports that the proposal actually happened during a trip to upstate New York a few weeks prior.
The nuptials are expected to draw lots of attention, as both Kloss and her new fiancé have expressed opposition to President Trump’s policies, including family separations at the U.S.-Mexico border, but it doesn’t seem to have impacted the friendship between Kloss and Trump.
