Announcing her birthday, she posted a stunning picture of herself wearing a white and tan full-piece swimming costume in a swimming pool. In the background, was the magnificent landscape and two elephants gracefully passing by.

She captioned the Instagram image: “Hello 28. how blessed am I to welcome a new year with elephants which are revered as a symbol of good luck & prosperity ?! Happy Birthday to me“
