Alex Rodriguez is feeling "grateful" as he celebrates his 46th birthday.

The retired MLB star shared a celebratory Instagram post Tuesday, his birthday, sharing several snapshots of his St. Tropez vacation.

"I'm feeling so grateful today, not just for celebrating my big day with my incredible friends and family on this magical trip, but for all of the well-wishes, love and support from everyone," The Corp podcast host wrote in the caption.

"I couldn't ask for anything more. #ThankYouAll. Here's to a healthy, happy and meaningful 365 days for us all! #46#AgeIsJustANumber," he concluded.

Included in the photos was a snap of Rodriguez cheesing in front of a neon "46" display in front of a private jet, as well as several pictures of the athlete smiling with various groups of friends. The post also included a video of Rodriguez riding in a small boat alongside a much larger yacht.

On his Instagram Story, he shared a group shot from his "birthday brunch," and reposted a tribute from his youngest daughter Ella, 13. He is also dad to Natasha, 16.

Rodriguez and Lopez announced their breakup in a joint statement in April, saying they realized they "are better as friends and look forward to remaining so."

"We will continue to work together and support each other on our shared businesses and projects," the statement said. "We wish the best for each other and one another's children. Out of respect for them, the only other comment we have is to say is thank you to everyone who has sent kind words and support."
