Gabby Sidibe celebrated her 36th birthday with friends at the happiest place on earth and made sure to document the fun for her fans on social media. The “Empire” star, who has successfully lost a ton of weight, also showed off her athletic side.


Sidibe became a year older on May 6, but the actress looked way younger in photos and videos from her Disneyland birthday bash.


In one video from the fun outing, Sidibe can be seen stretching and jogging in preparation for skipping as someone counts down off-camera.

The “Precious” star underwent laparoscopic bariatric surgery in 2016 and lost about 150 pounds

“You thought I wasn't gon skip on my birthday?” she captioned the post. “Nawwww! I was in #DisneyLand living my best life and skipping my best skip.”


The Oscar nominee rocked a location-appropriate ensemble consisting of Minnie Mouse-inspired t-shirt and leggings paired with red sneakers.

Sidibe also shared photos of herself skipping with friends and posing for pictures as they took in the different attractions at Disneyland.

“What good is skipping through #DisneyLand if you can’t do it with your friends?!” she captioned a post featuring several images and video clips.


The fun and athletic birthday bash is evidence that Sidibe is living her best life and keeping true to her new resolve to stay active as much as possible.

After struggling with weight all her life, the “Precious” star underwent laparoscopic bariatric surgery in 2016 and lost about 150 pounds, per StyleCraze.


What followed was a determination to stay healthy and keep up the weight loss, so she had to get used to eating right and staying active.

'I just didn’t want to worry. ...I genuinely [would] worry all the time about losing my toes.'

“I work out with my trainer three to four days a week. If I’m not working out with a trainer, I get up, and I go swim,” Sidibe told PEOPLE in 2017.


She added:

“I’m as active as I can be, which is actually quite a lot. I have an Apple Watch that tracks me all the time. I have a tricycle at my house in L.A.; I also have a tricycle on set in Chicago. During my lunch break, I ride my tricycle around the block or I’ll ride it around set. I stay as active as possible. I’m stronger, and I’m able to move more.”


Sidibe chose to get the surgery done after previous attempts at weight loss failed, and she and her brother were diagnosed with Type 2 diabetes.

“I just didn’t want to worry. I truly didn’t want to worry about all the effects that go along with diabetes,” she shared with the outlet. “I genuinely [would] worry all the time about losing my toes.”

Now, Sidibe confirms she’s not “worried about losing my [expletive] toes anymore” and seems to have grown accustomed to working with a nutritionist for healthy eating and a physical trainer that helps with exercise and fitness.

You go, Sidibe! And let’s not forget Happy Birthday!
