Molly Sims is embracing her natural beauty for her 49th birthday.

On Thursday, the actress took to Instagram to share a set of makeup-free photos marking her 49th birthday, posing in front of a pool in a pink bikini and floral robe.

"Birthday behaviour still going strong," she captioned the post for her more than 740,000 followers.

Sims's photos were met with countless birthday wishes and compliments from fans.

"Ageless, natural beauty is the best kind," one Instagram user commented, while another added, "You are so gorgeous. Naturally beautiful."

"Happy birthday, Molly! You're aging like fine wine," someone else wrote.

"Mother, wife, and timeless beauty! You're a legend," another added.

"Holy smokes! You look better now than years ago. How is that even possible?!" asked another.

"49 and looking fine!" one fan quipped.

Despite her toned figure, in March, the mom-of-three opened up to Hollywood Life about how her views on dieting have changed since having children. "The Wrong Missy" star admitted to feeling the effects of body dysmorphia due to trying to stay a certain size for years.

The former model explained that she now focuses on being “healthy as opposed to being skinny.”

“Having to be a size two for 20 years is never easy on the mind. I think I’ll always have some type of body dysmorphia just because of that," she admitted. "You know, my hands still sweat when I try things on. I don’t think that’ll ever go away. I think my mindset, now that I have kids, is just different."

“I use my jeans. I don’t weigh myself. I know that I’m not good with a number on a scale, but I am good with a pair of jeans or a pair of pants or a dress, to know my body and where I am," Sims shared.
