Happy Birthday, Cookie! Taraji P. Henson celebrated her milestone 50th birthday Friday with girlfriends on the ocean and the beautiful lady wore nothing but a thong bikini. Oscar-nominated Taraji shared several snaps from the exotic celebration on Instagram. In the flicks, she’s seen flaunting her slimmy-trimmy body while smiling. Hyping herself up after hitting the big 5-0, Taraji captioned the photo dump:
“Go off shawty it’s ya BIRFDAY 💋💋💋”
Taraji shared even more video footage from the yacht party via her Instagram stories. She appears to be dancing and celebrating with famous friends like Angie Martinez and R&B Queen Mary J. Blige. The actress received well wishes from other famous friends in her comments like Kerry Washington, LaLa Anthony, Regina Hall and others.
Cookie has plenty to celebrate. Recently, the actress announced she’ll be getting her own “Empire” spinoff show. Fans of the show are looking forward to it, as the series came to an end early in April due to COVID-19 conflicts.
Henson also appeared on PEOPLE’s 2020 Most Beautiful Issue earlier this year. Although 2020 has been filled with uncertainty, the actress spoke about finding moments of peace and beauty:
“As a world, I hope going through this doesn’t make us cold. I hope we don’t walk around in fear. When this is over, it is going to take a minute for us to adjust. And that’s okay,” she wrote.
“My hope is that while we’re at home, people are getting closer to each other and themselves — to their souls. This is the time for all of us to come together and be powerful and just put love into the world so it can win overall.”
Happy Birthday, Taraji!
