Oprah Winfrey didn’t throw a huge party for her 70th birthday, and she didn’t ask for a bunch of gifts either … instead, she seemed content with a healthy run along the beach.
Waiting for your permission to load the Instagram Media.
The legendary talk show host celebrated her birthday milestone Monday, posting a video on social media showing her jogging on a California beach with a friend and one of her dogs. Looks like she had a pal (or perhaps a trainer) who was jogging alongside her.
The media mogul captioned her IG post … “Celebrating 70 with a run on the beach. #healthisthebestgift. Thank you for all the birthday love.” The hashtag is probably good news for Oprah’s friends and loved ones … it’s gotta be hard to find a gift for a billionaire!
BTW … Oprah added Jill Scott‘s timeless song “Golden” to the post … and she’s certainly looking pretty fit in her golden years. That’s the bigger point — O showing off the fact she works out, which is timely considering her recent confession to using weight-loss drugs.
Fact is … she’s caught a little flak of late for what people perceive as “taking the easy way out” — this after she denounced drugs like Ozempic, before doing an apparent about-face.
Here, however, she seems to be telegraphing something … namely, she gets active too.
The beach run obviously dovetails with her latest health transformation … as we reported, last month Oprah revealed she dropped 40 pounds in 2023, thanks in part to doctors prescribing her some medication.
