The “Mother’s Daughter” singer, who has been recovering from vocal cord surgery in Tennessee, spent time with the Australian musician, 22, to celebrate her special day.
Cyrus was spotted seated next to Simpson at what appears to be a celebratory meal in Nashville, according to a photo posted by a fan early Saturday morning. In keeping with the festive vibes, a variety of coloured balloons adorn the table where Cyrus, Simpson, and several others are seated.
Keeping the birthday celebrations going on Saturday afternoon, the pop star shared a series of sweet video messages from fans, as well as a pair of throwback posts of herself from birthdays past. Seemingly getting the TBT memo, her father Billy Ray Cyrus also posted a vintage clip of the pair, as the country singer brought his baby girl along for one of his interviews.
“Happy Birthday @mileycyrus!!! Love you so much,” he captioned the cute clip.
Joining in on the birthday love, Miley’s mother, Tish Cyrus, posted a photo of her daughter from the set of the music video for “Don’t Call Me Angel.”
“Always and forever my angel… Happy Birthday MCzzyyyy! I love you,” she captioned the shot, which showed Cyrus playfully sneering in a pair of angel wings, while flipping off the camera.
Younger sister Noah Cyrus also showered Miley with love, sharing a recent video of the pair as they showed off their best dance moves. “Happy birthday sissy,” she wrote. “love you SO MUCH.”
While Cyrus has been recovering, the singer has been spending some time apart from Simpson, but a source recently told PEOPLE that things are still going well for the two.
“Miley and Cody have their separate lives,” the source said. “Cody had to stay in L.A. but has visited Miley in Tennessee. They have a very easy relationship. They see each other when they can, and when they are apart, things are good too. This works for both of them.”
When Cyrus was hospitalised for tonsillitis last month, she discovered a separate issue with her vocal cords, which she unknowingly had for years, according to sources. After learning of the issue, Cyrus was told she would need to have surgery before the end of the year, and that the recovery process would include several weeks of silence.
“Miley is recovering well,” the source added. “She still has to be careful about using her voice, though.”
A source close to Cyrus previously told PEOPLE, though, that she is “doing great and will be back and better than ever early next year.”
