In a sweet twist of the usual birthday posting, Aniston took the occasion to honor her parents.
In the post, there's a throwback photo of Nancy Dow and John Aniston, her parents.
The post was captioned:
"Thinking about these two humans that created me as I bask in the afterglow of a beautiful birthday🎈"
"Thank you ALL for my beautiful birthday wishes."
"I felt sooooo much love from so many, and ALL of it is going to carry me through this wild and beautifully unknown year ahead."
"I love you! ❤️🌸😘🙏🏼♒️"
She also posted about her father—actor John Aniston—after his passing in November of last year.
"I am so grateful that you went soaring into the heavens in peace—and without pain."

And her fans wished her a happy birthday.
Another person focused on the importance of family.
Finally, someone added the pictures of Aniston haven't really changed since she was a kid.
