Gwyneth Paltrow celebrated turning 48 in the same way she came into the world — in her birthday suit.
The actress and Goop founder posted an Instagram photo Sunday celebrating her natural form beneath a glorious tree.
“In nothing but my birthday suit today,” Paltrow wrote in the photo caption. “Thank you all so much for the birthday wishes and thank you to @goop ‘s insanely amazing brand new body butter for making me think I can still get my kit off.”
Daughter Apple, 16, reacted in the Instagram comments, writing simply “MOM” in capital letters. Paltrow took the apparent complaint in stride, directing three laughing emojis back at her daughter.
Apple wrote later in the comments, “You are killing it tho.”

Vanessa Hudgens also needed only one word, writing, “Wow.”
“Friends” star and Paltrow friend Courteney Cox wrote praise sayin, “Happy Birthday! What a beautiful girl you are and inspiring in so many ways.”
Model Naomi Campbell wrote, “Happy Birthday @gwynethpaltrow, you got it!! Flaunt it.”
Hours earlier, Paltrow had joked about being in her birthday suit, sharing in an Instagram video that the “best place to be naked” was near her husband Brad Falchuk.
Falchuk wrote his own loving tribute on his Instagram page, below a photo showing Paltrow in repose.
“This (supportive expletive) is 48 today,” he wrote. “She makes friends feel like family and family feel like friends. Trust me, she’s the best. Happy, happy, happy birthday, Beauty. I love you.”
