Cheryl poses for a photograph.
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 an X Factor judge.
However, since giving birth to her son Bear five years ago, Cheryl has largely evaded the limelight.
After turning 39 on Thursday (30 June), 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 so much for all the lovely birthday wishes. I think I’ve had the best one yet.
“I have never been more in gratitude or contentment! (Or ate so much cake) sending so much love.”
Cheryl, who last released music in 2019, rarely posts selfies, with the last one arriving in June 2021.
Last year, it was also revealed that Cheryl was working on new music with former bandmate and “Masked Singer” winner Nicola Roberts.
Producer Naughty Boy said: “They’re really incredible songs, but it depends when Cheryl is ready to release it. There’s definitely an album there. 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 run a 5k charity race in honour of their former bandmate Sarah Harding, who died of cancer aged 39 in September 2021.
Singer Roger Daltrey and guitarist/songwriter Pete Townshend, now in their 70s, will take the stage in May as part of The Who's current six-member lineup and backed by an orchestra to play venues in the United States and Canada as well as London's Wembley Stadium in July.
Not one to chase after commercial success, Kip Moore’s acoustic endeavours have left him more musically fulfilled than in the near-decade since his sole No.1 single.

"Olivia has been a symbol of triumphs and hope for over 30 years sharing her journey with breast cancer,” he wrote. "We ask that everyone please respect the family’s privacy during this very difficult time.”
The poem addresses the human ability to rise from fall through the power of language, conveying that there is a possibility for recovery, after experiencing existential threats.
