You know what they say: The couple who laughs together, stays together. In celebration of Halle Berry’s 57th birthday, her longtime boyfriend, Van Hunt, dedicated a special post to his other half with photos that show a side of their relationship we rarely get to see.

The first photo included in the celebratory slideshow (which was shared yesterday on Instagram) shows the Bruised actress smiling for the camera while sporting a painted clown face. 

Meanwhile, the second picture shows Berry and Hunt making serious facial expressions while sporting similar clay face masks. And of course, the funny photos don’t stop there. The fifth slide features a photo of the couple donning matching costume face makeup.

“This is the woman I love,” Hunt, 53, wrote in the caption. “Behind the mask she makes me laugh til I hurt. I see her behind the mask, I always have. Happy bday, my love.”

And if they hadn’t already proved they are #couplegoals, Berry further showed her appreciation for the tribute post by writing in the comments section, “Thank you Van for always letting me be ME and loving me anyway!”

Fans of the couple couldn’t get over the silly photos in the comments, with one person writing, “These pictures are funny AF.” Another follower chimed in and said, “It makes me happy that you make each other so happy! And happy birthday to her!”

This birthday post comes a few days after Berry’s new profile for Women's Health was published online. In the latest issue of the magazine, the Catwoman alum candidly talked about going through menopause and living her best life.

While talking with Women's Health editor-in-chief Liz Plosser, the Hollywood actress touched on how she's dealing with this next chapter of her life.

“I’m challenging all those stereotypes about how you have to look a certain way or feel a certain way,” she said. “I’m my best self now that I reached 56 years old. I have the most to offer. I have zero blanks to give anymore. I’m solidly in my womanhood. I finally realize what I have to say is valuable, even if no one else agrees.”

Never stop being your goofy selves, Halle and Van.
