Shannon de Lima is not letting anyone bring her down.

The now 28-year-old model celebrated her birthday on Friday, and posted a gorgeous photo of herself in a white swimsuit, looking out at the ocean.
“Today on my 28th birthday, I want to thank everyone that’s been so amazing towards me, and to those who haven’t been, I’m sending you a kiss to help brighten up your life,” she captioned the Instagram post.
“To my family, who are the most beautiful thing in my life, to my friends (the real ones), I love you all so much!!!!" she continued. "I’m starting off the new year on a really happy note, and with a big desire to enjoy it and make the best out of it. I pray to God for an abundance of health in order to continue to enjoy the beauty of life. #happybday TO ME!”

The inspirational post comes less than a month after de Lima split from her husband, GRAMMY award winner Marc Anthony. The pair announced in December that they would be calling it quits after two years of marriage.
"After much consideration, we have mutually and amicably decided to end our two year marriage," read a statement obtained by ET, released in both English and Spanish. "We ask for privacy during this difficult process, and no further comments will be made from either one of us about this personal matter."
The 48-year-old singer officially filed for divorce on Dec. 16. De Lima has one son, Daniel, from a previous relationship.
