Connie's birthday, her first without Shona Ferguson

Connie Ferguson's 52nd birthday was a particularly bittersweet moment for The Queen actress. While the ageless media darling was of course, grateful for another year of life, Connie's first birthday without her beloved husband proved to be a difficult day.

Instead of moping around, the actress headed online to share a sweet video of Shona giving a speech at one of the last of her birthday parties they could celebrate together.

Watching the video, it's clear the stars shared a once-in-a-lifetime kind of love. Connie and Shona Ferguson can't help but keep their eyes locked as the loving husband gave his speech.

"You are my partner, my best friend, my soulmate. Your happiness is my number one priority... I want you to know how special you are to me," Shona can be heard saying in one part of the clip.

Even though there are no new memories to be made together, Connie thanked Shona for giving her enough love to last a lifetime. At one point in the heartbreaking video, the couple hugs super tightly.

"Thank you for the everlasting birthday wishes. I love you for eternity!" Connie captioned the post.

With a love like Connie and Shona Fergusons', there's no doubt the mom of two would have been showered in gifts from her man on Valentine's Day.

Connie was really lucky to have pals around that were sensitive to her situation. Fellow media personalities, Tumi Links and her man, Cash Flow, were sure to shower Ma Connie with all the love they know Shona would have wanted.

Taking to Instagram, Connie thanked the kind couple for her stunning bouquet of red roses. She felt grateful to have friends offer comfort in her time of grief.

One thing South Africans have always loved about Connie and Shona is their playful energy around one another. While the couple was married for 20 years, Mzansi found it wonderful how they never seemed to lose that childlike spirit with one another.

Videos of their silly moments together always sent peeps laughing and we really could never get enough of the lovey-dovey banter between them. In August last year, Connie shared a sweet memory of them talking in their car.

It sounds like it was a long day on set as Connie complained about having to work on a Saturday. What makes the video even more hilarious is when the actress jokes about her boss making her work on weekends, but she and Shona actually make all the work decisions!
