Her gallery's last snapshot showed her in a red swimsuit, flashing a smile as she posed with her shades. In the post's caption, she thanked Anthony for taking her on her early birthday getaway, adding:
"I'll be blessed, booked and busy on my actual bday so I started celebrating! MARCH best month ever!!! Happy bday to all my #piceses #aries people!"
Vanessa and Anthony celebrated their 30th wedding anniversary in 2018. Despite her successful career, she sees Anthony, an anesthesiologist, as her biggest blessing and accomplishment.
The couple, whose love continues to grow daily, shares two daughters, Ashley and Alexandra, with whom Vanessa has a close bond. The actress displayed this bond when she joined her daughters to perform an epic dance after her 60th birthday in 2017.
Vanessa is notable for starring as Imani, Eddie Murphy's arranged wife, in "Coming to America." With the famed film's sequel set for release on Amazon Prime on March 5, she recently spoke about the original film's casting.
The soon-to-be 64-year-old said she originally auditioned for the lead but was cast in the smaller role because of colorism. Vanessa explained that when white people hire Blacks in movies, they sometimes want a certain look.
She claimed the film's team wanted a light-skinned girl, and she was not light enough. Murphy had the final say on who played Lisa and chose Sharl Headly for the role. Despite not getting Lisa's role, Calloway remains grateful for featuring in the movie.
