A gift that would make any little girl feel like a princess.

Soaps.com sends belated birthday wishes to the daughter of General Hospital’s Emme Rylan (ex-Lulu)! The actress had a very busy weekend and, along with her partner Don Money and the rest of the family, celebrated Dakota’s fourth birthday on Saturday, June 26. In fact, she was “so busy” partying with Dakota that she didn’t take any photos! “Luckily my mom got this beautiful picture!” she expressed then went on to reflect on how grown-up her youngest child looks. “How on earth is she four already?!?”

Thinking back to Dakota’s birth, Rylan recalled, “Four years ago… we were at the hospital crying with joy over this sweet soul’s entrance into the world. Our lives were forever changed!” On that day, Dakota joined older brothers Jackson and Levi, also Rylan’s sons with Money.
