Molded from clay and brought to life, Wonder Woman was born on this very day!

According to the DC Calendar, the comic book heroine turns a year older on March 22 and in celebration of Diana Prince's birthday,ย Gal Gadot shared an inspiring message on social media.

"Wonder Woman, my amazing amazon, happy birthday! ๐ŸŽ‰ ๐ŸŽˆ๐ŸŽˆ๐ŸŽ‚๐ŸŽˆ๐ŸŽŠ," Gadot wrote alongside a Wonder Woman comic strip. "You are as beautiful as Aphrodite, wise as Athena, swifter than Hermes, and stronger than Hercules - all the Gods are with you, and you are with us all to help make the world a better place ๐Ÿ’ƒ"

"Thank you for changing my life, and for inspiring people worldwide to find their own superpower โค" she added.

Gadot's life indeed changed when she starred in the 2017 mega blockbuster, Wonder Woman, directed by Patty Jenkins. The female-led action flick grossed more than $821 million and became the highest-grossing live-action film directed by a woman.

A sequel is currently in the works with Jenkins once again at the helm. In January, the director and Gadot spoke exclusively to ET about what fans can expect from the sequel, which isn't scheduled to hit theaters until some time next year.

โ€œWeโ€™re actually making a totally different film with a lot of the same, similar like things that we love, but itโ€™s its own movie completely, so itโ€™s not โ€˜twoโ€™ to us,โ€ Jenkins explained. โ€œItโ€™s an entirely new adventure together that we couldnโ€™t be luckier [to do].โ€
