Fans Are Loving Sophie Flay's Funny Post For Her Dad's Birthday

Celebrations are in order for chef Bobby Flay! No, not because he nabbed yet another win on his hit cooking competition show, "Beat Bobby Flay," or because of his recent Food Network deal – though that's not to say that those don't call for a commemoration of their own. This week, folks are celebrating Flay for a more personal reason. Per Insider, today, December 10 marks yet another spin around the sun for the restaurateur, who turns the big 5-7 this year.

As often with birthdays, the Food Network star has received a number of sweet shoutouts on social media, but there's one, in particular, that is giving fans quite a laugh. His daughter Sophie celebrated with an Instagram post on Friday that is equal parts sweet and hilarious. "Happy Birthday Dad!!" the 25-year-old captioned the three-part update that kicked off with a selfie of the podcast hosting, daddy-daughter duo. "You deserve all the coconut cake and gelato today!!!" 

The post also featured a second photo of the pair posing together in a large kitchen, as well as a video, which is where the true hilarity ensued. In the short clip, the celebrity chef could be seen standing outside with a succulent-looking burger in his hand that, naturally, featured his signature potato-chip topping. Flay stared down the lens as it zoomed in on him and his meal before a voice in the background – presumably Sophie's – uttered a single word: "Crunchified."

Both friends and fans commented with birthday wishes for Bobby Flay

As with Bobby and Sophie Flay's joint Instagram appearance on National Daughters Day, both friends and fans of the Flays went wild for the young journalist's birthday shoutout for her dad. The Instagram post has racked up over 11,000 likes and hundreds of comments from other social media users, including a few of the cookbook author's Food Network co-stars. "And many more!" chef Jet Tila responded while Flay's good friend and fellow chef Alex Guarnaschelli left a string of three red heart emojis.

Many fans chimed in with well-wishes for the television host on his special day, too. "Happy Birthday to my all-time favorite @foodnetwork chef, @bobbyflay," one person wrote, while another thanked Flay for "all of the entertainment you provide." Others couldn't help but make a comment on the hilarious video of the burger-loving chef. "HBD @bobbyflay!! We [heart emoji] you!! @abc7sophie the last video is hilarious," user @shellcat5 wrote. "Burger and Bobby looking good!!" added another fan. Fans probably can't wait to see what the chef has in store after turning 57.
