B&B Star Scott Clifton’s Beautiful Birthday Message to His Son Brought Us to Tears

Tags:

Ford Clifton is turning two and his father, THE BOLD & THE BEAUTIFUL star Scott Clifton (Liam) has penned an absolutely beautiful message to his little boy that brought tears to our eyes. “Happy second birthday to the most beautiful soul I know,” he shared on Instagram. “I couldn’t have imagined how much would change after you took your first breath.

“The point of my life, it turns out, is yours,” Clifton continued. “Self-interest consumes so much of my stupid, fleeting, fickle human existence; what a gift you are — to exhale, step off the stage, take my seat in the audience, and enjoy the Story of Ford. I won’t be here for the third act, little one, but I know you’ll get a standing ovation.”

Happy 2nd birthday to the most beautiful soul I know. I couldn’t have imagined how much would change after you took your first breath. The point of my life, it turns out, is yours. Self-interest consumes so much of my stupid, fleeting, fickle human existence; what a gift you are—to exhale, step off the stage, take my seat in the audience, and enjoy the Story of Ford. I won’t be here for the third act, little one, but I know you’ll get a standing ovation. It’s an experience shared by every parent, I’m sure, but you make it so easy for your mom and me—your intelligence, your kindness, your sense of humor, your curiosity, your imagination, your perceptiveness, your focus, your warmth, your smile… God, that smile. There is so much I want to show you, so much I want to see again through your eyes, and so much to learn from you, when you’re ready to show me my own blind spots. You’re better than I’ll ever be. What a privilege to claim you as my legacy. What a relief to know I left the world a better place than I found it, because I left it you. I love you.

Cilfton then expressed feelings that every mother and father can understand and relate to. “It’s an experience shared by every parent, I’m sure, but you make it so easy for your mom and me,” the proud papa declared. “Your intelligence, your kindness, your sense of humor, your curiosity, your imagination, your perceptiveness, your focus, your warmth, your smile… God,that smile. There is so much I want to show you, so much I want to see again through your eyes, and so much to learn from you, when you’re ready to show me my own blind spots.

“You’re better than I’ll ever be,” Clifton concluded. “What a privilege to claim you as my legacy. What a relief to know I left the world a better place than I found it, because I left it you. I love you.”
