Dressed in a casual nude blouse, Cheryl wore her long brunette locks down and in gentle waves for the sweet birthday snap.
Accessorising with a chain necklace and a number of gold rings, the former X Factor judge had opted for a natural palette of make-up.
Cheryl held onto a plate that had been decorated with the words “Happy Birthday” in chocolate, alongside a pink cupcake topped with a candle.
“Thank you so much for all the birthday wishes, I had the loveliest day,” she wrote to her fans, who flooded the comment section with good wishes.

The Girls Aloud star’s famous pals also sent their best, including Towie’s Jess Wright, who wrote: “Happy birthday beautiful.”
The social media post came days after Cheryl was pictured with her ex Liam Payne for the first time in three years.
One Direction star Liam split from his fiancée Maya Henry three weeks ago, and reunited with Cheryl at a first birthday party for Liam’s niece.
Liam, 27, and Cheryl split in 2018 after two years of dating and just over a year after their son was born but have remained on great terms.

Earlier this year Liam admitted they were “closer than they had ever been”.
Speaking to Glamour, Liam said: “Cheryl is literally the best person to co-parent with. No stress involved. It’s very, very relaxed, and we spend a lot of time on FaceTime.
“And it’s been really lovely, and I’m closer to them than I’ve ever been before, actually, which is really, really nice.
“But bedtime FaceTime can go really well sometimes. Or I bought him some toys yesterday that I showed them on the FaceTime and it was like I had to go and travel over and hand the toys over the fence!”

Cheryl, who moved out of ex Liam’s Surrey home when they split, now lives with son Bear in Buckinghamshire, while Liam lives nearby in a rented mansion.
Following his split from Maya, it was reported that Cheryl had been “his voice of reason” during the tough time.
An insider said: “It was Cheryl, who was telling him that if he wasn’t happy, then he needed to ‘grow a set’ and speak out.
“She saw it as her responsibility to be the voice of reason, as Liam’s choices have a direct impact on Bear.”
