Today, one of our favorite actresses and fashion icon, Tracee Ellis Ross celebrates her 39th birthday.

Born Tracee Joy Silberstein, the second eldest daughter of legendary singer, Diana Ross, Tracee, who stars on BET’s ‘Reed Between the Lines,’ is still most adored as Joan on the hit sitcom, “Girlfriends.”

Whether starring on the big or small screen, Tracee’s commanding presence and killer sense of style continually remind us why Black girls rock.

“Sending back LOVE & sweet big hugs to everyone. Thank u so much for all the birthday wishes,” tweeted Tracee today.

As she blows out 39 candles we wish this fierce and fab “girlfriend” a happy birthday.
