  • Renee Gracie celebrated her 26th birthday Tuesday by sharing a sexy snap on Instagram

  • Gracie's fans and followers flooded her post with warm and sweet birthday greetings

Renee Gracie is loving her life, and she made it known when she celebrated her birthday this week.

On Tuesday, the racer-turned-porn star shared a racy photo on Instagram to celebrate turning 26. For the photoshoot, she posed in front of a dark pink background with rainbow-colored balloons spelling out "Happy Birthday." She is stripped down to her birthday suit, covering her modesty with only icing and a rainbow lollipop. 

"Happy Birthday to me! 26 and loving life," she wrote in the caption.

"Everything I’ve ever done in my life has lead me to where I am at right now, and I couldn’t be happier," she continued. "The people in my life, the ones the left. The a--holes and the good ones. It’s all molded me into the woman I am and I wouldn’t have it any other way."

Her fans flooded the comments with birthday greetings, with many also leaving red heart and fire emojis.

This comes after the Australian model announced on New Year's Day that she had achieved all the goals she set for herself in 2020. The past year was indeed a great one for Gracie, who went viral and gained massive popularity after news broke that she ditched professional racing and became an adult entertainer. 

She reached the top 1% of content creators on subscription platform OnlyFans, where she claimed to have made  $2 million in less than a year. Gracie has since announced plans to leave OnlyFans and launch her own adult website after complaining about the platform's commission rates.

But with her rising popularity, Gracie also has her fair share of critics and has not shied away from clapping back at malicious comments about her appearance and career.

"If it does keep going boo," she responded to an online troll's hate comment last year. "I'll happily be whatever you want to call me. Somehow, judging by the way you attack and speak to people on social media, regardless of my life choices, I'm clearly in a much better place than you. You can't drag me down to your level."

Gracie continued to address her critics, saying, “If you have ever commented bad things on someone’s page on social media, not only are you probably not okay, you’ve lost. The person who your [sic] hating on is winning and they know it too. I don’t know how people can be bothered to waste their own time in their lives to hate on someone else’s life! I feel sorry for people’s mental health on the internet."

Just recently, Gracie made another major career move by partnering with gambling website Brazino777.com.
