‘The Bold and the Beautiful’ (B&B) spoilers find that fans aren’t the only ones shocked that Denise Richards (Shauna Fulton) has turned 50. Denise herself can hardly believe it.
Denise celebrated the milestone birthday on February 17 and posted to Instagram a video her daughter filmed of the starlet blowing out the candles of not one, but two birthday cakes! Denise captioned the video with a long message to her followers and fans that said in part:
“I still can’t believe I’m 50! How is the chick from Wild Things and Starship Troopers 50?! Yikes.” The beauty continued by writing, “I’ll be honest — I had a bit of anxiety leading up to this birthday.”
‘The Bold and the Beautiful’ Spoilers: Denise Richards (Shauna Fulton) feels reflective as she hits the big 5-0!
Fans would be amiss if they thought Denise was simply feeling contemplative over days gone by and the femme fatale characters she has played like Kelly Van Ryan in the racy Wild Things, the movie to shoot her to stardom, or perhaps Bond girl, Dr. Christmas Jones in The World Is Not Enough.
The reason runs far more than skin deep. Denise explained, “It’s because of my mom. She turned 50 when I was pregnant with Sami and shortly after was diagnosed with cancer and passed away a few years later. So, I always had a bit of fear and anxiety, and I know logically I shouldn’t.”
Sami, Denise’s oldest daughter with Charlie Sheen will be 17 next month.
“I don’t know if any of you have experienced this when you lost your parent and you got to the age they were,” Richards continued in the heartfelt post. “And you hope and pray you’ll pass the age. It’s very surreal. I know that everyone’s journey is different.”
Denise added that she initially wasn’t going to mention her mother’s passing and her self-reflection as she didn’t want to sound negative about her birthday, but she also knew she wouldn’t be alone in her feelings. She told her fans she knew her mother was watching over her on her birthday.
As the post continued Denise admitted that, although she enjoyed the “tiny intimate celebration blowing out candles with my loving family around our fireplace” she had initially hoped to celebrate the “big birthday in Bora Bora, St. Barts or Australia.”
And we all wish we could have been there with you, Denise!
Denise thanked her fans for their birthday messages, saying she read them all and finished the caption by writing, “I’m so excited for this next incredible decade. And I can’t thank you enough for all your support & loyalty. I wouldn’t have a job without you. And I know that. And your kind words have uplifted me many moments when I needed it. Thank you & Love to you all 🙏🏻❤️”
While Denise looks forward to the next ten years, B&B fans are looking forward to the next time they will see Denise on their screens. It’s about time we see Shauna and bestie, Quinn Forrester (Rena Sofer) causing havoc for the folks at Forrester Creations again!
