Madonna is toasting her father Silvio Ciccone — the "O.G. Daddy" — in honor of his 93rd birthday!

The pop icon, 65, shared a wholesome post on Instagram on Sunday, June 2, featuring several photos of herself and her dad over the years.

"Congratulations for riding the roller coaster of life with humor and sanity intact," Madonna wrote in her caption. "Thank you for sharing your mantra in life with me, which is: 'I'm gonna go until the wheels fall off.'"

"Nothing can stop us! Love you to the moon and back. 🩷❤️🧡💛💚🩵💙💜🤎🖤🩶🤍❤️‍🩹," she added.

In the first two images of Madonna's carousel post, Ciccone can be seen receiving a warm hug from his daughter backstage at one of her events.

Other photos in the slideshow include a snap of the father-daughter pair together on stage earlier in her music career, a throwback family portrait (also featuring Madonna's late mom, Madonna Louise), and an old-school snap of Silvio himself.

"Sweet ❤️❤️❤️," Rosie O’Donnell commented under the post.

One of the pics Madonna shared as part of the post was captured in 2021, when Madonna took five of her six children to visit her dad at Ciccone Vineyard & Winery in Michigan in celebration of his milestone 90th birthday at the time.

"My father is a survivor growing up as an Italian Immigrant in the US and living thru many traumas but always working hard for everything he had," she wrote on Instagram at the time of the -

visit. "He taught me the importance of hard work and earning one's way in life.............Again I thank you. 🙏🏼."

"It was so special to spend your 90th birthday with you and my children in your vineyard. 🍇🎂🍷🎉♥️ #happybirthday," she added.

On Mother's Day last month, the pop superstar honored her late mother with a vulnerable Instagrampost. In her caption, she reflected on her 1963 death at the age of 30after being diagnosed with breast cancer.

"I stood on stage for 81 shows staring up at the beautiful face of my mother and wondering what she must’ve been thinking as she waved goodbye to me from her hospital window. I stepped into the station wagon and shut the door not knowing it was the last time I’d see her," Madonna wrote, referencing how she pays tribute to her mom during her latest tour.

"Nobody told me my mother was dying — I just watched her disintegrate mysteriously and then she disappeared and there was no explanation except that she had gone to sleep which explains my tumultuous relationship with sleep," Madonna added.

Madonna — herself a mom to Lourdes, 27, Rocco, 23, David, 18, Mercy, 18 and twins Stella and Estere, 11 — added that there's "no Easy way into the motherhood game."

"No manual or University," she said. "Just trial and error and learn and succeed and then fail again. Finally the realization that they were raising me and not the other way around."
