Robyn ‘Rihanna’ Fenty spent her last twenty on Instagram reminding persons that she’s still in her 20s.

Well, it’s a new day. It’s February 20th, 2018 and today Rihanna is the big 3-0. She's 30 years old!

Yesterday in an IG story she said it’s her last day to make bad decisions and blame it on her twenties.

Now it’s on to the next one.

However, let’s look back with RiRi as she gives thanks to the woman who is her foundation – her mother, Monica Brathwaite.

On Instagram, along with a baby photo of herself and one of her rocking her Fenty Beauty Stunna lip paint last year, three hours ago, she posted:

“10958 days ago @monica_fenty became a mother for the first time to her only daughter! Today is just as much your birthday as it is mine! I love you mom! Thank you for carrying me, birthing me, raising me, supporting me, teaching me, and loving me unconditionally! The woman I am today is because of everything that you are!

"I thank God for perfectly hand picking you to be my mother when He sent my spirit to you! You are the greatest! Thank you!”

But her mum was hot off the press this morning extending her loving wishes to her Grammy-award winning, internationally renowned singing daughter.

Accompanying a photo of her in her kindergarten uniform, Monica wrote:

“Happy 30th. God's blessings to my 1st born. The sweetest , most humble person I know , and most loving daughter ever. Lots of love back to you on your special day.”

And Rihanna wasn’t the only one thanking Monica for her life, hatshepsut_1989, Emmanuelle Kus, a self-taught Dublin based portrait, fashion photographer & blogger commented, “The world thanks you Monica”.

But the day's not done yet and it seems Rihanna's birth night is set to be lit.

Rihanna this afternoon posted a video of an animated alien dancing Caribbean style to a bashy track - Boom Flick on the BareBack Riddim by Mole, produced by Dutty Tallics Records. She captioned it - 'bare shellings tonight!!!! feb.20' and that was the start.

Then Melissa Forde shared a video of Rihanna on a private or boat from the look of the surroundings and the hashtags speak of them having a blast tonight too. The caption read: 'The turn up WILL be real taniteeee ya digg @badgalriri@jennnrosales  @leandrasimone @sonitalex #Posebihhh #Doirtyyy30'

While, on her IG, Jennn also posted, 'Happy Dirty 30 $chlumpa $chtoten!!! I met you at a young 19, now ya ole as c***! 🤪 Can’t believe we been cracking up world wide for 11 years now. You know how much I love you, trying to put into word is a I won’t. #the30yearturnuptonightisreal #oleasc***#30neverlookedsogood #cakecakecake@badgalriri'
