Love is in the air for Emilia Clarke! The Mother of Dragons is dating 35-year-old director Charlie McDowell.

"Well that was a birthday I won't be forgetting in a while. ❤️," Emilia captioned the shot. Shortly after, Charlie — who is the son of actress Mary Steenburgen and Malcolm McDowell — posted the same picture on his account, writing, "Happy birthday, E. ❤️" Emilia marked her 32nd birthday on Oct. 23.
