Glenda Gilson refused to let lockdown get in the way of her 40th birthday by celebrating at home with her family.

The model and presenter marked the milestone with husband Rob MacNaughton and sons Bobby and Danny.

She shared snaps of her pandemic-friendly party on Instagram, showing off colourful balloon arches and a scrumptious birthday cake.

The Dubliner wrote: “And just like that I turned 40! I actually can’t believe it, but I have to say the last four decades have been pretty damn great.

“I bloody love life & love laughing and that’s all thanks to the wonderful people I’ve had such craic with over the years. Thanks so much for all your well wishes xxx Here’s to the next 40!

“@robmacnaughton you’re one in a million – Thank you,” she continued.

Fellow showbiz friends quickly wished the model a happy birthday in the comments.

Glenda’s pal and ex-Xposé presenter Lisa Cannon was disappointed that the duo couldn’t celebrate together so left a loving message instead: “Happy Happy 40th Birthday Whaaaat?! Can’t believe your 40!! Love you to the moon and back my funny, beautiful, giddy, bold, brilliant sparkly friend!

“Hope you have a smashing night & the bubbly is on ice until we can truly celebrate. Much joy and billions of balloons... Lisa Xxx.”

Blogger Pippa O’Connor added: “Happy birthday Glenda.. You still look as young as the day I met you xx.”

It’s been an exciting year for Glenda and husband Rob MacNaughton as the couple welcomed their second child Danny in October following Glenda’s stint on Dancing With The Stars.

They are also parents to Bobby, who was born in October 2018.

The happy pair married in 2014 after years of dating.
