John Travolta is entering a new decade!

On Sunday, the actor turned 70, and his daughter Ella Travolta shared a touching tribute to mark the milestone.

"Happy Birthday to the man who is always by my side and who is always bringing light and beauty into this world. I love you to the moon and back❤️," Ella, 23, wrote in the caption of an Instagram post which featured a throwback photo of the pair.

In the image, a young Ella made a frowning face for the camera as she posed next to her famous father.

John also got a birthday shout-out from Jamie Lee Curtis, his costar in the 1985 film Perfect.

"HAPPY BIRTHDAY @johntravolta," the actress captioned her Instagram message to the Grease star. "We have been friends and colleagues for a long time and we share a passion for our art and children and rescue pups!"

Curtis, 65, also shared several photos of the pair, along with an image of them posing together on a July 1985 cover of Rolling Stone magazine.

John first broke onto the scene in the 1970s TV series Welcome Back, Knotter. An Emmy and Golden Globe-winning star, he rose to leading man and Hollywood heartthrob status for his roles in 1977’s Saturday Night Fever and 1978’s Grease. The former earned him an Academy Award nod for best actor.

His filmography has cemented him as one of film’s most iconic names. He has two upcoming projects, Cash Out and the movie-musical That’s Amore! with Katherine Heigl.
