Black-ish star Tracee Ellis Ross has let her 7.1 million Instagram followers know that she is only getting better with time.

The actress welcomed her 47th birthday by showing her fans just how much she has not aged through the years. In a recent Instagram update, the actress wore a green tribal print bikini that reveals her insane body.

In the first pic, she was smiling at the camera as she was hunched over next to a swimming pool. Her signature curly hair was pulled into a bun as she rested her hand on her face. In the photo, the star was free of makeup as the stunning background appeared behind her.

Ross moved on to showing off her amazing figure in more social media photos. In one, she was sitting near the pool as legs were featured while she looked away from the camera. In the following photo, Ross sported a more serious stare as water dripped down her face and body. She then shared a photo of herself as she stood by the pool.

In the post, her hands were on her mouth as she attempted to hide a smile from her audience.

At the time of writing, the steamy photo slideshow received more than 300,000 likes and more than 15,000 comments from Ross’ fans and followers.

“Happy Birthday legend!” one Instagram user exclaimed.

“Gorgeous birthday queen,” another follower shared.

In her caption, Ross reflected on the idea that she had turned 47 and how she has not been afraid of aging. The Girlfriends alum shared that, on her birthday, she was “filled with gratitude.” She also admitted that she “loves getting older,” and that she “loves her life.” In addition, she said that she has not been afraid to continue sending “thirst traps” while in her late 40s.

This was not the first time that the seemingly ageless beauty showed off her curves on Instagram. The Inquisitr previously reported that Ross decided to pose nude to promote her latest business venture, Pattern Beauty. The actress showed off her dangerous curves and wild hair as she stared at the camera with a small smile plastered on her face. The logo was seen at the center of the photo, ensuring that Ross was not revealing her entire nude body in the snapshot.

Ross launched Pattern Beauty earlier this month. In addition to her business and her starring role as Rainbow Johnson on Black-ish, the actress also took on the role of executive producer this year. She is currently at the forefront of Mixed-ish, which follows a young Rainbow, who navigates through life as a bi-racial teen.
