To celebrate her 54th birthday, actress Jackie Lou Blanco did the unexpected, and something that most women are afraid to do at her age — proudly flaunt her body.

Blanco sizzled in a maroon two-piece swimsuit while blocking her gaze from the scorching sun, as shown in a photo she shared on her Instagram page on Sunday. She admitted that the last time she donned a bikini was 20 years ago, when she joined the “Great Bodies” contest.

“My tummy was never flat. I was a chubby child,” the actress revealed in her post. “It still isn’t and that’s why I rarely wear one.”

She then went on that she eventually got conscious of her figure. She had a hard time shedding the excess weight three years ago. But thanks to her personal trainer, “little by little the weight came off and I started to get more toned.”

“I wasn’t sure whether I was going to post this foto, [b]ut as I turn a year older today, I realized I am not at that frustrating place I was years ago and I am grateful and thankful,” Blanco expressed.

For her special day, she chose to celebrate “my struggles, my [strengths],my [weaknesses] and my victories.” “I celebrate all the women out there, [a]ll shapes and sizes,” she added in dedication of other women.

Followers of the actress expressed their admiration for the actress’ physique, saying she is a “fitspiration” to them.
