The 30-year-old actress dedicated a sweet post to Reich on Sunday ahead of her 31st birthday Aug. 29.

"[They've] known each other for a while now," an insider added to Us Weekly. "They met a few years ago and she's a fan of the clothing line."
"Hard to believe it's been 4 years ... We miss you C ... love you more," the star wrote.
