She recently returned to her home in New York due to work commitments but she celebrated her birthday in style with cocktails and dancing with her family in her home. 

Christie also amazed her fans when she shared a photo of herself triumphantly jumping out of a bright pink birthday cake. 

The photo, which was taken last year, showed Christie in a leotard type ensemble, popping out of a massive fake cake. She even took to the air on a flying trapeze for her birthday celebration in which she would have turned 66.
