Zendaya is celebrating turning 27 with a look back in time!
The actress and singer celebrated her birthday on Friday with a sweet photograph posted on Instagram of her younger self.
In the throwback snap, Zendaya crouched down in front of what appeared to be a plate of cookies, with chocolate adorably smeared on her lips and right hand as she sported a huge grin.
“Every year I grow I’m reminded of how precious this life is,” the star began her post, before going on to thank fans for all their well-wishes and “constant support.”
“Thank you all for helping me fill it up with so much love. Your kind words and constant support means everything to me. Thank you so so much and here’s to 27,” Zendaya concluded the post, adding two pink heart emojis.

Zendaya recently opened up to Elle in an interview for the magazine’s September 2023 issue about the public interest in her relationship with Holland.
“Parts of my life, I accept, are going to be public,” Zendaya said. “I can’t not be a person and live my life and love the person I love.”
“But also, I do have control over what I choose to share,” the actress added. “It’s about protecting the peace and letting things be your own but also not being afraid to exist.”
She continued, “You can’t hide. That’s not fun either. I am navigating it more than ever now.”
