On Tuesday, April 21, 2020, actress Heather Locklear celebrated a very special milestone in her life. She took to her social media account to share the great news.

This week, Locklear, 58, celebrated her first year of sobriety. She honored the special day by posting a quote about staying positive and moving forward, which was attributed to the late poet Maya Angelou.

The actress captioned the post: “Hugs will come later!” and added, “1 year sober today!!!” Part of the post reads: "Life goes on" and "I've learned that making a 'living' is not the same thing as making a 'life.'"
