Birthday girls just want to have fun!

Gina Rodriguez kicked off her 32nd birthday on Saturday at Kia Beach House in Malibu where she was surrounded by many family and friends, including good friend Peter Facinelli, who gifted her a Twilight doll.

“It was the first birthday in years that they all got to spend together as they were always living in different cities,” a source tells PEOPLE about Rodriguez spending her special day with those closest to her.

The Jane the Virgin star entered the celebration with Joico Celebrity Stylist Paul Norton, her makeup artist and goddaughter, showing off her new blonde bob with a hip black low-cut floor length halter dress.

As guests arrived and prepared to cut loose on the dance floor, they kicked off their shoes and threw on some Teva sandals.

“Gina, newly single, and having the best time of her life, was break dancing with her cousins,” the source says of Rodriguez, who split with boyfriend Henri Esteve last September.

Guests fueled up on STK sliders, lobster rolls, roasted chicken, steak and Tuna Tartare; once the birthday cake came out, Rodriguez put on a birthday crown and danced with all of her family on the porch overlooking the SoCal sea.
