Turning 40 is a huge deal. Though it’s definitely a milestone age, some people find it daunting because of the notion that one is already over the hill as soon as they reach this age. Others, however, believe that life begins at 40 when people have become wiser and more experienced in life. The latter appears to be the case for some of our favorite celebrities turning 40 this year, as they’re now ready to bounce back personally and professionally, over a year after the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic. Below are 30 stars celebrating or who have celebrated their 40th birthday in 2021.

The Fantastic Four actress turned 40 last April 28th. Jessica Alba marked her latest age milestone on Instagram by sharing an adorable photo of herself with her husband Cash Warren and their three kids. “My heart is full of hope and everything I do in life is for you #myfamily #thisis40,” she captioned the pic.

Alba, who celebrated her birthday with an intimate outdoor bash seemingly thrown at the office of her consumer goods company The Honest Company, was last seen on Spectrum’s crime dramedy series L.A.’s Finest and will next star in the upcoming action thriller movie Trigger Warning.
