Good morning, dear Heinz Hoenig. We want to surprise you with a large portion of love, after all, you are celebrating your 72nd birthday today!
Your wife Annika Kärsten-Hoenig (38), with whom you have been extremely happily married since 2019, revealed to us, the BILD am Sonntag editorial team, that you read BILD every morning. That’s our pleasure!
“Anni” would like to thank you: because in her eyes you are the best husband and father for your sons Juliano (3) and Jianni (11 months). Read what she writes to you.
Today I would like to congratulate you in a very special way. You know me, I always have to exaggerate a bit. Anything else wouldn’t be your Anni either!
We met once. Not in Berlin, Hamburg or Munich. Nope! Quite unspectacular in a tiny little village called Harlingerode. Of all places where you grew up. There are coincidences, they don’t exist at all.
But maybe there are fateful encounters? Ours was destiny! Because what was initially a friendship turned into love.
One touch changed everything and love became life. Our common. Because it wasn’t an ordinary touch like “touched a thousand times, nothing happened a thousand times.” There were a thousand and ONE that Zoom had made. One that touched.
Back then, at the age of 66, a new life began for you and we’ve had a lot of fun together ever since. As Mr. and Mrs. Hoenig. We, two people who couldn’t be more different and yet are so incredibly similar.
Who understand each other, trust each other unconditionally and have a compatible quirk. Which, as the Harz native would say, fit together like a glove!
Heinz and Annie. You and me, two crazy people on a mission! Accomplices who always stick together in good times and bad. Holding on to each other where others would have long since let go.
But we don’t just dance around our kitchen when the sun is shining, we also rock the stage of life together when it rains. Jack, queen, honey – always an ace up your sleeve! Despite every (head)wind, we set sail. Towards the future!
And during this time I don’t want to miss you for another second and celebrate many more birthdays and celebrations with you. Just like your 72nd today!

Age is just a number and it doesn’t really matter to me anyway. In your heart there still lives the little boy who infects others with his positive life energy and loves to make them laugh. You are and will remain (H)unique. My husband, best friend and soulmate. The greatest love you can imagine. The love of my life! Yesterday, today and forever.
I couldn’t imagine a better dad for our sons Juliano and Jianni. And I know that these two rascals are the greatest gift for you. A gift that makes growing old healthy worth every day.
Thank you for all the wonderful years that became memories and for all the years that lie ahead. Thank you for existing and for allowing me to be your wife!
I love you!
