Shepherd also added that she decided to do the classic Hollywood-themed shoot in an effort to pay homage to "many of the leading ladies" on whose "shoulders she stands."

Some of them include Dorothy Dandridge, Hattie McDaniel, Lena Horne, and Diahann Carroll. Shepherd feels blessed to have marked another milestone and still be relevant after years in the entertainment industry. 

The talented comedian has a lot of accomplishments she is proud of, and above all, she is at peace with who she is— a "strong," "intelligent," "sexy," "talented," and of course, "pretty funny" woman.

Anyone can tell she is in love with how her body looks now more than ever before— her Instagram page is filled with shots flaunting her sculpted curves in fashionable dresses she would have thought twice about wearing years ago. 

She reportedly credits her new toned figure to a strict high-fat, low-carb diet coupled with intermittent fasting. Her motivation is none other than her son Jeffrey, a boy who shares her birthday.

Shepherd's love for the boy is known to all those who follow news about her. She thinks he is similar to her in many ways, and it gives her a feeling of accomplishment whenever she sees him doing his own thing. Happy Birthday, Shepherd!
