The 50-year-old shared an adorable snap arm-in-arm with his mom as the duo flashed huge smiles standing in front of the vehicle.
MaryBeth’s new red Jeep – which retails for around $50K – sat behind the mother-son pair equipped with a massive red bow for the birthday girl.
Chris captioned the tribute: “Happy birthday to the woman who spent her life making sure I could chase my dreams.
“A true example of strength, love, grace, compassion, humor, faith & so much more…Love you mom.”
Meanwhile, MaryBeth shared an image of her own of the car and cheekily warned: “What a birthday present. Watch out I am on the streets!”
The pricey present comes after The Sun exclusively revealed that Chris received a staggering sum of around $15million after stepping down from Bachelor hosting duties due to his “racist” comments.
The source admitted that the Disney-owned network and Chris most likely landed on a number “around $15 million.”
While his salary has never been officially confirmed, it’s been reported he earned around $8 million per season of the ABC franchise.

The large amount will nearly DOUBLE Chris’ net worth, which is reported to be around $25 million.
END OF AN ERA
Fans were outraged he did not “denounce racism” and in fact claimed he “encouraged” it – which Chris later apologized for, though people called him “insincere”.
Along with a picture of him hosting a reunion show, he wrote: “I’ve had a truly incredible run as host of The Bachelor franchise and now I’m excited to start a new chapter.
“I’m so grateful to Bachelor Nation for all of the memories we’ve made together.
“While my two-decade journey is wrapping up, the friendships I’ve made will last a lifetime.”
Chris officially calling it quits was followed with fans praising Tayshia and Kaitlyn as “the best hosts ever.”
