As more congratulatory comments flowed in, one commenter wrote, "happy looks so good on you and you wear it well," as they finished their comment with a heart emoji.

Bertinelli's embrace of an alcohol-free lifestyle stems from her heartfelt revelations in an April 2024 interview. "I don't need anything to amplify my happiness right now," she said joyfully, adding that she feels "high just on life."

The actress and author at the time also mentioned she hasn't completely sworn off drinking but hasn't had any in recent months. The idea of removing alcohol from her life began while she was writing her memoir "Enough Already."

Bertinelli's decision followed a series of challenging years, including the death of her first husband, rocker Eddie Van Halen, in 2020 and her split from her second husband, Tom Vitale, in 2022.

She recalled, "I would go out and have a fun time, drink, and the next day, I'd be so sad," adding that alcohol intensified the existing sadness in her life. This realization led Bertinelli to a crucial insight into handling emotions.

She emphasized the importance of facing emotional pain head-on and understanding her feelings. "Emotions are information. When I decided to really question why I was having a certain emotion, I was able to — most of the time — walk through it and get to the other side," said Bertinelli.

On June 12, Bertinelli sparked speculation among fans that she's using Ozempic after appearing in a now-deleted Instagram video. Her appearance in the video had netizens buzzing about potential weight loss.

In the video, Bertinelli was seen with Goodnough in a cozy home setting. She wore casual jeans and a white top, while Goodnough sported navy blue sweatpants and a green shirt.

Despite the swirling speculations, with some wondering if she was using Ozempic, Bertinelli has clarified that she has not. However, she supports those who find success with it. The TV personality shared that it took her a long time to learn how to listen to her body and discover what truly nourished her.

Bertinelli emphasized practicing patience and being kind to oneself when it comes to weight loss. She revealed that mastering emotional control has been key to her weight loss journey. "Unless you do the emotional and mental work, weight is not going to stay off," she explained, noting that everyone has their unique approach to weight loss.

In her cookbook "Indulge," Bertinelli shares her favorite recipes and touching personal stories. She details her evolution from obsessively watching what she ate to fully enjoying the food she puts on the table.

As she remains optimistic about her future, Bertinelli's love life continues to thrive. Last April, her boyfriend, Michael Goodnough, made her 64th birthday memorable by flying across the country to celebrate with her.

Goodnough shared his journey on social media, posting a photo of a plane flying from Newark to Los Angeles and expressing his excitement despite the travel discomfort. Bertinelli responded warmly, expressing her joy and appreciation in the comments and acknowledging his efforts to be with her on her special day.

Their relationship, now public, is marked by affectionate gestures and happiness. Goodnough shares photos and birthday tributes, showcasing their closeness. Bertinelli expresses gratitude for his love and support, reflecting on the positive impact of their new relationship.
