A fourth fan commented, “I love everything, I mean everything about this love story… Congratulations and Happy Birthday. You are truly appreciated.”

“Happy Birthday!!! Love you, @judgegregmathis,” he penned.

On April 9, Mathis took to Instagram to give fans an update about his birthday festivities. The Detroit native shared that he had “a great birthday weekend” with his family and friends.

According to his Instagram post, Greg’s adorable grandchildren, Nora and Zara, organized a particular “surprise” birthday party for him.

“Linda then spoiled me with a special birthday dinner, and my children concluded the celebrations with a fun Sunday brunch,” Greg added. “Feeling blessed for these cherished memories.”

In the photo carousel, all four of Linda and Greg’s children — Jade, Camara, Amir and Greg Jr. — could be seen happily spending time with the 64-year-old retired court judge, each wearing big bright smiles.

Judge Greg Mathis gained widespread recognition for his syndicated reality courtroom show Judge Mathis, which aired from 1999 to 2023. Born on April 5, 1960, in Detroit, Michigan, Mathis overcame a troubled youth involving gangs and criminal activities to eventually become the youngest person to be appointed a judge in Michigan’s 36th District Court.

During an episode of his reality TV series Mathis Family Matters in 2023, Greg disclosed that Linda and her family played a significant role in his departure from street life. The former court official revealed that he learned how to be a man through the wisdom imparted by Linda’s father.
