Iconic fashion designer Marc Jacobs is the kind of man who has everything.

The best homes around the world, the most stylish cars and of course… a plethora of splendid clothes; in short, he'd be a bit of a nightmare to buy a birthday present for.

So it's lucky for the designer's friends that he treated himself to the gift of spending his 49th birthday today with his Brazilian porn star boyfriend.

Like any sensible birthday reveler, the New Yorker has been stretching the big day out.

Jacobs, who split up with another Brazilian – Lorenzo Martone – last year, was spotted at the beach in Ipanema with his beau at the weekend.

But today was the big day, and the excitement was obviously mounting when Harry tweeted:
Today is such an special day day… And it should be a notional holiday, at all countries, coz it's my baby's Birthday, lol. Luv U Marc 😉 x

The 24-year-old, who now lives in London, is quite the smitten kitten, even announcing on his 'about me' blurb on Twitter that he loves 'his BF.'

Initially, the pair refused to confirm or deny reports that they were dating.

A photograph of the famed designer looking cosy at a Paris party with the adult film actor led to much-hyped speculation about the nature of their relationship.

According to Brazilian gossip site GPSBrasilia, Jacobs met the youthful and exotic-looking Mr Louis in the British capital.

Jacobs saddened the fashion world and his millions of fans when he announced his split from handsome Brazilian ex-model, Martone, in 2010.

The designer and PR executive were rumored to have married in St Barts on New Year's 2009 in a celebration that included a cake topper made in their likeness.

Louis is a celebrity in his own right, in his own field.

Born in Brazil, Louis began his sizzling career in Spain and in 2006, after supposedly having his heart broken, moved to the United Kingdom.

He now has over 4000 followers on Facebook and fans of his English language blog regularly log on to catch up on news about his work and look at family photographs.

Louis is vocal about his love for his mother, who – he says – is his best friend.

In an interview with Vogue earlier last year, Jacobs insisted that Martone was his closest confidente: 'We are best friends… We speak to each other, I don’t know, six times a day.
