Gwyneth looks happy and relaxed in her garden, wearing nothing but a wrist watch. She attributes feeling so comfortable in her own skin partially down to her brand's new body butter, which she calls 'insanely amazing'.

Fellow celebrities were quick to comment on the picture. Courtney Cox wrote, 'Happy Birthday! What a beautiful girl you are and inspiring in so many ways. ♥️'

While talent manager Guy Oseary said, 'Happy Birthday my friend. Even though we are born days apart you will always be 6 days older and years wiser. When this covid thing is over we can celebrate our birthdays together with a good ol 80’s dance 💃 🕺🏻 .. Have a great one. 🎂'

Fans also commented in droves, praising the picture. One wrote, 'WOW, I'd never have the courage to post something like this! 💙🔥 Have a happy birthday!!! 🎁🎈🎉'

Not everyone was happy about the post however. Gwyneth's teenage daughter, Apple, had a less than positive response.Gwyneth shares Apple, 16, and Moses, 14, with her ex Chris Martin.

Apple simply commented, "MOM". Looks like someone's a little embarrassed...

Happy birthday Gwyneth, we hope you've had a fabulous day!
