He wrote: ‘Happy Birthday to the most fun person I’ve ever met. I would have felt blessed to have smiled with you for one night. 

‘I can’t believe I get to giggle with you everyday. What a pleasure it is to know you. What a gift to the world it was that you were born. ‘

Midsommar star Florence then shared her boyfriend’s post on her own Instagram Stories and responded with a single red heart emoji.

The sweet post comes after Florence defended the 20-year age gap between herself and her boyfriend.

Speaking in a Sue Perkins podcast interview last July, she said: ‘I’ve always found it funny, how I can be good enough for people to watch my work and support my work and pay for tickets and I’m old enough to be an adult and pay taxes but I’m not old enough to know who I should and should not have sex with.

‘Once again making a young woman feel like s*** for no reason,’ she added.

The Little Women actress also said she struggled with ‘admitting’ how bad the negativity made her feel, but has since realized it’s ‘ridiculous’ for strangers to comment on who she chooses to date.

She added: ‘I think I did feel s*** for a while about admitting that. Then I thought how ridiculous is that? I’m 24 and I can’t choose who I love.

‘People just want to have a say on who you go out with, where you go for lunch. For me, I’ve always found that part of this life, even when I grew up watching actresses, I’ve always found that weird how people have a say over your private life.

‘I’m not a reality TV star, I don’t let people into my life like that so since when has it been OK for someone to shout at someone for their relationship?’

Zac and his former Scrubs co-star Donald Faison, 46, in March launched their Fake Doctors, Real Friends podcast on iHeart Radio in which they rewatch the series while sharing their stories and experiences of shooting the show.

Florence can next be seen in the Black Widow superhero film starring Scarlett Johansson, 36, scheduled for release in May after being postponed twice due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.

She is also currently working with Harry Styles on Olivia Wilde’s upcoming new thriller Don’t Worry Darling.

And the busy star is among the rumored line up of actresses to play Madonna in her upcoming biopic, which the Queen of Pop, 62, is set to co-write and direct with the Oscar-winning screenwriter Diablo Cody.
