Meghan Markle entered a new decade on Wednesday, August, 4, so she is obviously celebrating the milestone occasion.
Though it was reported that the former actress would be having a big birthday party, that doesn't seem to be the case.
“Meghan is not having a blowout 40th,” the insider continued. “She feels it would be wrong to organize a big birthday bash in the midst of a pandemic.”
In the meantime, the mom-of-two made a special announcement that same day — and even got Melissa McCarthy to join in on the fun!
"In reflecting on my 40th birthday and the many things I am grateful for, I'm struck that TIME IS AMONG OUR GREATEST AND MOST ESSENTIAL GIFTS: Time with our loved ones, time doing the things we love, time spent learning, laughing, growing, and the sacred time we have on this earth," the mom-of-two wrote on her Archewell website. "Amongst the most valuable gifts of time is also time spent in service to others knowing that it can contribute to incredible change. To that last point, and with my 40th lap around the sun in mind, it made me wonder: what would happen if we all committed 40 minutes to helping someone else or to mentoring someone in need? And then what would happen if we asked our friends to do the same?"
"For my birthday, I have asked 40 friends, activists, athletes, artists, and world leaders to help kickoff a global effort by contributing 40 MINUTES OF MENTORSHIP to support women re-entering the workforce. With this time, I hope they each help someone advance a professional life on her own terms, and, I hope that they inspire countless others to give 40 minutes of their time as well," she continued.
The brunette beauty is clearly in a great place. “Meghan isn’t fazed about entering into a new decade of her life,” the source explained. “She’s embracing turning 40 years old.”
