Cheryl shares rare selfie as she treats herself to a large slice of cake on 39th birthday

Cheryl shared a rare selfie on social media this week, in which she teased that she'd enjoyed quite a bit of cake on her birthday – with a large slice even seen in the photo.

The singer, now 39, received an outpouring of well-wishes on her birthday Thursday June 30, which the former Girls Aloud member teased had been the "best one yet".

The special occasion saw her share a selfie with her 3.5 million followers on Instagram, with the Brit Award winner thanking fans for their birthday wishes in the recent post.

The photo showed Cheryl pouting as she showed off a large piece of sponge cake that was accompanied by some strawberries and what appeared to be a mug of coffee.

The mother-of-one was seen wearing a pale yellow jumper, with a white turtleneck top visible underneath. Decorative plants could be seen in the background of her rare share.

Expressing gratitude, she wrote in the caption that accompanied the selfie: "Thank you so much for all the lovely birthday wishes. I think I've had the best one yet."

Cheryl further commented in the recent post: "I have never been more in gratitude or contentment (or ate so much cake)." She concluded by writing: "Sending so much love."

It's the first time that Cheryl has posted on her Instagram page since May, with the singer – who has a five-year-old son, Bear, with ex Liam Payne – not regularly sharing selfies on the account.

Unsurprisingly, her latest post prompted much attention, including attracting around 40,000 likes on the platform, with fans taking to the comments to say 'happy birthday'.

She also received birthday wishes from former bandmates, and her longtime pals, Kimberley Walsh, 40, and Nicola Roberts, 36, who both posted for Cheryl's birthday.

Kimberley recently confirmed that the band, which had also included Nadine Coyle, 37, and the late Sarah Harding, are set to take part in a fundraising event this month.

They are due to participate in the Race for Life on July 24 in honour of late bandmate Sarah, who passed away last year, aged 39, just weeks after she'd announced she had cancer.

It has been further teased by Kimberley that they're planning a Gala dinner in Sarah's name, though she suggested that an on-stage reunion isn't likely to happen any time soon.
