Reese Witherspoon is celebrating her 42nd birthday with style. The “Big Little Lies” star kicked off her birthday celebrations by eating cake for breakfast—and fans and celebrity friends made the day extra special as they sent sweet birthday wishes to her.

“Cake for breakfast, anyone? Thank you for all the sweet birthday wishes! Feeling so much love today! I’m one lucky gal,” Witherspoon, who donned a lacy navy blue dress, wrote on Instagram. The Academy Award-winning actress, who was pictured with her son Tennessee, also wore a bright pink birthday hat.
