"Stop, I didn't feel bad about turning 50 until now!" Savannah exclaimed.

Savannah marked her 50th year with her close family at home, as she celebrated her birthday just a few days after Christmas.

While it was a "perfect" birthday, the star admitted that it was bittersweet in a heartfelt post at the time, as her late father was constantly in her thoughts – having passed away at the age of 49, and never making it to her current age.
