Tichina Arnold turns 50 years old today, and based on the birthday song she performed for herself on social media, her pipes are stronger than ever:

She also looks as youthful and vibrant as ever. The key to that is eating well, even when she’s traveling constantly for work, and being happy, which she can’t help but be around her daughter, Alijah.

“I love to cook and eat and meals have always been a family event, but as I get older — I just celebrated another birthday — I am traveling more and I’ve had to adjust the types of foods I eat, but certainly not the taste,” she said a few years ago. “Sometimes I’m traveling for work and gone for weeks. I normally pick up my snacks for travel a few days ahead of time. But, when I’m home with my daughter, it’s kitchen time. We love cooking. It’s a family thing. Alijah and I have so much fun in the kitchen together. We laugh a lot and we experiment with dishes all the time.”

Everything she’s been doing has paid off big time, because as she celebrates half a century on this planet, Tichina is still a stone cold fox. Hit the flip to see her evolution over the years:
