Announcing her birthday via her Instagram page, Williams wrote, â€œIt is with great pleasure that I am here to celebrate another year of my life. I am grateful for surviving all the challenges throughout the last 365 days and turning a year older. Happy Birthday to me.â€
Her ex-husband, Balogun, shared new photos on his Instagram page with the caption, â€œStepping into the new age on eagleâ€™s wings. Itâ€™s time to sour.â€
