Happy birthday, Hunter McGrady! The mom and model rang in her 30th birthday on May 4 and honored the occasion with an adorable celebration with her family.

The five-time SI Swimsuit model shared snaps of the festivities on Instagram. In the first photo, she sat on the floor beneath pink birthday decor and kissed her son, Hudson, on the cheek. In another, McGrady and her newborn daughter, Ava, sported matching baby pink pajamas. She also provided a close-up snap of the smiling infant, a video clip of her son playing with the birthday decor and a photo of a box of donuts.

“Season 30 episode 1 🍾,” McGrady wrote in her caption.

Plenty of the model’s 714,000 followers shared happy birthday messages and well wishes for entering a new decade of life in the comments section.

“Happy birthday mama!!!” Ally Courtnall wrote.

“Ahhh, happy birthday Hunter! The thirties are the best. 💕✨,” Daniella Monet offered.

“Pure JOY!” someone else added. “Happy birthday sweet friend, 30, flirty & thriving mama! 💖🥳.”

McGrady first posed for SI Swimsuit in 2017 when she traveled to Anguilla for a unique body paint feature with photographer Josie Clough and makeup artist Joanne Gair. She was most recently featured in last year’s magazine after posing for Yu Tsai in Belize.
