Nicola Coughlan may very well be the Queen of Ireland.
From her beginnings in Derry Girls to her massive success in Bridgerton, she has become a household name.
So when she celebrated her 36th birthday this week, we felt like we were there partying alongside her.
To mark the big day, Nicola herself shared a picture of herself as a child looking very excited at her own birthday.

“It’s my birthday, here’s one I took earlier-No front teeth just vibes,” she wrote showing off her signature wit.
Baby Nicola is adorable with long brunette locks and a Mickey Mouse t-shirt. To add to the look, there was a party hat sat jauntily on her head.
Her Instagram Stories were filled with birthday wishes from her pals including her Derry Girls co-stars Siobhán McSweeney and Louisa Harland and her Bridgerton besties Simone Ashley and Luke Newton.
Of course, we are waiting with bated breath for the third season of Bridgerton which will have Nicola in the lead role as her character Penelope finds love.
The season is set to drop later this year. And that’s not the only place we’ll see Nicola this year. She will also be appearing in Greta Gerwig’s Barbie film alongside Margot Robbie which will land in cinemas on July 21st.
What a big year for Nicola!
