LeAnn Rimes is 40 and fabulous.

The singer today made sure her Instagram followers knew it was her birthday, taking to social media with a series of photos and videos and including well wishes from her nearest and dearest.

Posting on Sunday and via her Instagram stories, she shared a video from a bestie, one celebrating good times and coming as a throwback.

The Can’t Fight the Moonlight hitmaker and a female pal appeared in boomerang mode – seemingly, also in party mode.

Footage showed LeAnn shaking her stuff while in a sheer white swimsuit on powder-fine sands, also backed by distant greenery – the Grammy winner was bopping around with her gal pal, who wore a white bikini.

With her hair down and blowing in the wind, LeAnn showed off her sensational figure in her partially-embellished one-piece, wearing shades and going barefoot.

“Happy birthday @leannrimes,” the text read.

“Let the good times begin! Welcome to the 40s club! Love you BIG XOXO,” it added.

Shortly before her birthday, LeAnn was chased around by the paparazzi while in sunny Malibu, CA. She enjoyed an outing with her husband, Eddie Cibrian, plus her two stepsons.

LeAnn and Eddie go back to 2009 as a couple and celebrated 11 years of marriage this year. Sharing romantic snaps to Instagram in April and including a wedding photo, LeAnn gushed over the milestone, writing:

“It’s a year to the day since i first shared a snippet of “how much a heart can hold” with you, as eddie and i celebrated our 10th anniversary. i never expected the reaction we received to the song, or for it to be included on my new record “god’s work,” but it just fits so perfectly. it was time to share it with the world so that you could also have the opportunity to make it a part of some of your most memorable, tender moments too.”

LeAnn and Eddie’s relationship began with some controversy as Eddie was already married to Brandi Glanville when the pair first hooked up. This led to a very public feud between LeAnn and Brandi, which is suspected of having a negative impact on LeAnn’s music career.

The 49-year-old Eddie is an actor best known for his work on Sunset Beach and has been known to occasionally join his wife on the red carpet. The pair now seem to make a perfect couple.

Mentions of god’s work have since sky-rocketed as the singer gears up for the release date of her album amid her comeback, due September 16.

Fans have been getting plenty of promo for god’s work, a record LeAnn recently told fans “is beyond special to me, and we have carefully curated every step of this process, like never before.”

She added that she can’t wait for her new music to be her fans’ speakers and in their “hearts.”

Last week LeAnn was back on Instagram to promote the upcoming album. The hitmaker posed in a skintight tank top with an outer mesh layer. Her mouth was wide open, seemingly, indicating her excitement over the album release.

She wrote in the caption, “tfw your new album is out in ONE MONTH today,” and explained that fans should be able to preorder “in all the places you can find music.”

LeAnn has nearly 800,000 followers on Instagram and this post picked up thousands of likes from expectant fans.

LeAnn remains best known for the 2000-released track Can’t Fight the Moonlight, used in the iconic movie Coyote Ugly.
