Former Girls Aloud star Cheryl has shared a rare photo to celebrate her birthday.
The singer joined the band after winning Popstars: The Rivals 20 years ago and enjoyed a solo career and a stint as X factor Judge.
However, since the birth of her son Bear five years ago, Cheryl has largely avoided the spotlight.
After turning 39 on Thursday (June 30), the ‘Fight For This Love’ singer decided to share a photo with her fans.
She wrote to her 3.5 million Instagram followers: “Thank you for all the lovely birthday wishes. I think I’ve had the best so far.
“I’ve never been more grateful or happier! (Or ate so much cake) to send so much love.
Cheryl, who last released music in 2019, rarely posts selfies, the last one appeared in June 2021.
It was also revealed last year that Cheryl is working with her former bandmate and on new music Masked Singer Winner Nicola Roberts.
Producer Naughty Boy said: “These are really incredible songs but it depends on when Cheryl is ready to release them. There is definitely an album. You can’t force these things. Cheryl is a real artist. She’s not one of those artists you can force.”
Cheryl will soon reunite with Girls Aloud stars Roberts, Nadine Coyle and Kimberley Walsh to host a charity 5K race to honor her former bandmate Sarah Harding, who died of cancer in September 2021 at the age of 39.
