Cable Network News (CNN) Africa Editor, Stephanie Buhari turns 40 today!
The award winning journalist whose extensive coverage of the missing Chibok Girls recently earned her an honorary award at the prestigious Gracie Awards, had a photo session with TY Bello and has released the gorgeous new photos to mark her special day.
She also took to Instagram to share a birthday message with her fans and loved ones. See post below.
So here it is the BIG 40!!!! For a long time, I was apprehensive about turning 40. The weight of 40 felt so big and intimidating. But today, I embrace the fullness of this milestone age with grace, humility and gratitude knowing that I am privileged to be alive, to be surrounded with amazing friends and family. I will live each day with passion, striving always for excellence in what I do, to be a great mother to my beautiful daughter and all other children that God chooses to bless me with and to be a supportive and loving partner when the right person comes into my life. I thank God for the special grace to be alive today, to live and love another day. For enormous blessings I cannot quantify and for life in abundance. Thank you to the forever excellent @tybello for these beautiful, jaw dropping pictures. You’re truly a master at what you do. You will be celebrated just as you have celebrated me. Happy born day to me! Now let’s PARTY!!!! #lifebeginsatforty #40isthenew20 #birthday #photoshoot #blessedbeyondmeasure
