Most of us would probably just whisper that we’d reached our fifties – rather than announce it to the world while wearing a bikini or dancing atop a table.
But a number of stars are doing exactly that – as they throw ultra lavish birthday parties and pull out all the stops to celebrate their 50th decade.
Stars like J.Lo, 54, Kate Beckinsale, 50, and Heidi Klum, 50, have all marked their birthdays this summer with extravagant events – and plenty of raucous behaviour.
While Jennifer took to a table top to dance and Kate joined a group of friends to gyrate against one another, Heidi opted for a super skimpy gown for the big occasion.
And far from being concerned about getting older, many have been sharing positive messages about ageing alongside their daring snaps.
Kate wrote: ‘I tell you what. Getting old is f***ing great’, while Jennifer posted: ‘I’m extremely grateful to be where I am today at this point in my life’s journey.’

Among those who was unafraid to show off her dancing skills and incredible physique for her birthday was JLo – who performed on top of a table during her 54th birthday celebration last week.
The superstar shared some moments from the party — which took place last Monday on July 24 and was hosted by husband Ben Affleck, 50, at their new $60 million Beverly Hills mansion — to her On The JLo newsletter.
One clip saw the Hustlers star dancing in a backless halter neck silver gown that clung to her toned figure as she performed for her guests atop a table to Lizzo’s hit song About Damn Time.
While Lopez grooved from above her guests were seated around a table and cheered her on.
‘Birthday mood… all month!! It’s always a good day when Lola comes to play,’ she wrote of her alter ego.
Despite wearing pointed toe heels with bows Lopez expertly navigated her way on the wooden table while showing off a range of dance moves.
The singer wore her honey brown tresses pinned halfway back for the party.
She accessorized with drop earrings and a number of silver bangles.
As for glam she looked picture-perfect with bronze eyeshadow and nude gloss.
Lopez shared details of the party in a letter to her subscribers, revealing their blended family all got together to celebrate.
‘All the kids were there, it was a gorgeous day full of sunshine and perfect for a pool party!!’ she wrote.
‘I felt so appreciated and acknowledged by my loved ones, and I’m extremely grateful to be where I am today at this point in my life’s journey with so many beautiful, caring people to share it all with.’
‘Wishing you all the same love and happiness on your birthday and always!!’

It was a similar story for British actress Kate, who celebrated her 50th birthday in style by throwing a raucous party at her Hollywood mansion over the weekend.
The actress was joined by a slew of celebrity pals who gathered to commemorate the occasion, including Demi Moore, James Marsden, rapper Big Boss Vette and Selling Sunset star Chelsea Lazkani.
Kate looked sensational for her big night, showing off her incredible figure in a red velvet gown with sexy cut outs at the waist and a thigh high split that flashed her long legs.
Adding to the glamour, the mother-of-one donned a pair of towering platform heels and styled her hair in a ponytail with a big bow headband, exposing a pair of dazzling diamond earrings.
Just one outfit wasn’t enough the star, however, with Kate later changing into a dazzling silver bodysuit that she paired with an extravagant feathered shawl.
With the likes of Demi Lovato, TOWIE star Chloe Sims, Vas J Morgan and Jonathan Cheban cheering her on, Kate blew out the candles on her three birthday cakes before heading inside to dance.
