Gabrielle Union’s fans and followers have voiced shock over the actress’s ageless looks after she posted a series of stunning bikini snaps to Instagram in honor of her 49th birthday – prompting a flurry of praise from awed commenters.
The mother celebrated her birthday with a romantic trip to Cuixmala, Mexico, with her husband, Dwayne Wade, 39, and she wasted no time in flaunting her enviable figure in an array of bathing suits – even roping in her partner to serve as her photographer.
In one set of snaps, Gabrielle is seen posing in a skimpy orange bikini with a straw hat on her head – which she posted along with the caption: ‘Forty-fine! Happy birthday to me!’
While the Bring It On star – who welcomed her daughter Kaavia via surrogate in 2018 – was clearly feeling confident in her appearance, any doubts she may have had were likely quickly erased by the influx of complimentary comments from her followers, many of whom were quick to point out how young she looked in her images.

Back in 2014, Gabrielle explained how keeps her appearance so youthful.
‘Well, when I was young, it was like a curse, but I think my oily skin has worked as an embalming fluid,’ she told Entertainment Tonight.
‘I also try to keep my stress levels down and I started drinking a gallon of water every day once I hit 35.’
She also explained to E! News last year, ‘I swear to God, the second I learned how to say “no,” I felt that was the best anti-aging I could do for myself.’
