Having just turned 49 on September 27, Gwyneth Paltrow marked the special occasion with a ceremonial Instagram post, posing in a bath, in her ‘birthday suit’.
Somewhat of a birthday tradition for the Goop founder, Paltrow’s makeup-free photo shows her lounging in an old-fashioned bathtub, going au naturel and smiling up at the camera. Covering her chest with her hands, eagle-eyed fans have spotted two pairs of eyeglasses nearby, leaving them to assume that husband, producer Brad Falchuk, is likely behind the camera.
Captioning the image with nothing but a half moon emoji, celebrities and famous friends of Paltrow were quick to comment their birthday wishes to her.
“Happy birthday beautiful!😍” commented Paris Hilton.
“Brilliant pic. Happy birthday beautiful ❤️🙌❤️,” added Naomi Watts, while Issa Rae wrote, “Happy birthday! ❤️”
According to her Instagram stories, Paltrow looks to be staying at the Mandarin Oriental Hotel in Milan, after fans noticed she had tagged the hotel in a photo of a record player, that saw the establishment repost her story with the message, “Thank you for staying with us.”
Merely one day later, Paltrow shared a picture with her son, Moses, to mark National Sons Day.
“Total heart melter,” she captioned the image of the two as they sit in a car in the countryside, accompanied with a sleeping dog on Moses’s lap.
Paltrow has never been one to shy away from discussing the reality of sexuality, and recently announced Goop’s upcoming Netflix series, Love, Sex & Goop.
“We’re coming on @Netflix (again). See you on October 21—and follow the link in our bio for more about Sex, Love & goop.” the company wrote.
