Fanning revealed that each year, Tom does one little thing to show her he still cares and is thinking of her.

“He has sent me a birthday gift every year since I was 11 years old. Beautiful gifts,” Dakota told Andy. “I always think, ‘Oh, when I’m 18, he’ll probably stop. Oh, 21, he’ll stop. But every year. It’s really kind.”

When asked what kind of gifts, Dakota disclosed that “it’s usually shoes.”

Lucky, girl!
