She told her 6.1 million followers: “Oh lil Mrs 42 look at you leanin’ into the moonbeams to recharge and radiate a purposeful glowing heart. I am very proud of my faith, resilience and strength over the last 4 decades.
“Everything in my life that has or hasn’t happened yet makes turning 42 very exciting because I know what it takes personally to remain inside of DETERMINED PATIENCE. I know myself and I do love her very much.
“I know my purpose and I must say that ladies and gents I am equipped to waltz within every dream I own confidently. I am humbled and honoured to finally be my own best friend. Ok 42 time to Rock ‘n’ Roll.”
The ‘Employee of the Month’ actress also shared a look at her birthday party, posting photos with friends and family, including her husband Eric Johnson and parents Tina and Joe Simpson.

“It was a sentimental and nostalgic blast of a week.”
