Jessica Alba turns 42! Actress enjoys relaxing weekend getaway with homemade cake and closest gal pals to celebrate birthday: ‘So grateful for another trip around the sun’
Jessica Alba celebrated turning 42 on Friday by enjoying a weekend getaway with her closest gal pals.
The day after ringing in her birthday, the actress took to Instagram to share photos of herself with a homemade cake as well as various snaps documenting her relaxing and fun trip.
As shown in her post, the Dark Angel star enjoyed a day of taking in the nature by the rural escape and hanging out by a creek with her friends.
The Spy Kids alum — who enjoyed a spring break trip to Hawaii with her family a couple weeks ago — also commemorated the fun day a friendship lock.
‘Thank you for all of the birthday wishes,’ the Golden Globe nominee wrote in her caption. ‘So grateful for another trip around the sun’.‘Shout out to my girls for making the weekend extra special,’ she continued. ‘Here’s to more love, light & growth!’
The first post as part of her carousel post was of the entrepreneur herself sitting in front of a chocolate cake adorned with raspberries and flowers.
Lit up by the light of the candles, Alba smiled radiantly as she posed with the confection.
In the photo, she put on a casual display and opted for a classic black sweater.
She jazzed up the comfortable look with a pair of dangling earrings with an aquamarine gemstone.
She was dazzling in layers of silver necklaces with a bird pendant strung on one chain and another with a lavish display of diamonds.
Her subtly-highlighted, brunette tresses were styled in voluminous, luscious curls.
She sported a minimal makeup look highlighting her flawless, glowing skin to showcase her natural beauty.
For her birthday, Alba also participated in some form of a healing ritual as suggested by a snap of seven bundles of sage around a lit candle.
She also shared a scenic photo of the sun’s rays coming through a forest of trees by the aforementioned creek.
Earlier this month, she shared photos of her fun spring break trip with her husband, Cash Warren, 44, and their three children.
The longtime couple — who have been married since 2008 — are parents to Honor, 14, Haven, 11, and Hayes, five.
