“I wanna remember the laughs and inside jokes and the pinch me I’m dreaming moments. pls let’s all forget the times when I would do my own eyeliner thx . much love and happiness to these ladies @fifthharmony and thx to the fans who had fun with us along the way x,” Camila added.
Camila, who didn’t tag her former bandmates, also took to her Instagram Stories to celebrate with another throwback. “look at these innocent lil babies,” she captioned the black-and-white photo of the girls from their very early days. “We all have armpit hair now! We had some good laughs/inside jokes and a fu**kn wild ride. Much love and happiness to these ladies @fifthharmony."

“Today is such a special day! First & foremost it’s the official 10 year anniversary of Fifth Harmony and the gratitude that I have for each one of these women and the experience of being part of something so special sticks with me to this day,” she wrote.
“Today, I’m playing @RadioCity in NY with my own music. Such an iconic venue and moment and I know it wouldn’t be possible without Fifth Harmony and the amazing doors it opened for me and the incredible lessons it taught me. It also happens to be a new moon in Leo and the alignment of all three things is not lost on me. I’m so grateful for my past, present and future,” she continued. “I’m so grateful for such potent grounds for a new fresh beginning at the amalgamation of it all. I feel so blessed to do what I love and I’m so ready for everything to come. Thank you to the #Harmonizers for staying down for us after all these years. You all are magic.

“It’s the way we were directed to be creative on our own for this specific section n my a** thought watering it was the sh*t bye,” she wrote in response to the hilarious clip of her watering the truck.
Fifth Harmony was assembled as a group in 2012, after they each auditioned on their own during the reality competition series. In December 2016, Fifth Harmony announced that Cabello was leaving the group.
In 2018, the group announced that they would be taking a hiatus, and have gone on to all focus on individual projects since. In August, Camila shared the status of her relationship with Normani, Ally, Dinah and Lauren. At the time, the “Havana” singer said she was in a “really good place” with the ladies.
"We have been supportive of each other through, like, DMs and stuff," she shared with Reuters. "I'm in a really good place with them."
