My birthday

I'm sitting at the kitchen table getting ready for a private birthday party at my home. I'm so blessed to have so many wonderful friends and fans who have been sending me cards flowers and cakes all day. Wonderful thoughtful gifts of beautiful letters and even a scrap book of my life so far! Some people worry about turning 60 but I'm so happy to be alive and well and doing what I love most with people I love. Yesterday I worked on Castle a TV show that I love and the actors and director were great. It was fun to act again if only in a small role. 2weekends ago I got to dance again with Jonathan Roberts and his wife Anna Edyta and Alec. Felt like I was back on DWTS but a live show called Ballroom with a twist. It was amazing and I did a waltz and an argentine tango. So I guess my body still works it's fun to defy gravity the natural way and I just LOVE to dance. The most exciting thing is the Open Heart Foundation event and launch which will happen on Saturday. More to come but you can check the website. Hopefully Johnny and his band Plead the Fifth will play for us tonight. We now have CDs which is so exciting. I love being a groupie for such talented kids. Great day so far. Love Jane


  1. Dear Jane, I hope you have a wonderful evening, celebrating your birthday with your dear friends and family. You are 60 years old today and I must tell you that you are such an inspiration to me. Your can do attitude and the way you make every day count,pushes me to be a better person. So enjoy this day, you deserve it! :) Your still as beautiful as you ever were!!!

  2. Happy Birthday!!!
    It sounds like you had a wonderful time.
    Thanks for sharing your birthday with us your fans.

  3. Jane, we've been thinking about you over here on the east coast! Hope you've had a wonderful day so far, and it sounds like a memorable night to come :) I always tell people right away upon being asked my age..I don't understand people who are ashamed...getting older is a privilege..not everyone gets to do it! So happy birthday! And can't wait for the event this weekend!! Cheers! Roxy

  4. Dear Jane,
    Wishing you a Happy, Healthy, and Blessed 60th Birthday!! The love that surrounds you today is the greatest accomplishment one can receive in this life. You can have all the riches in this world but without family and good friends it all seems meaningless. Hope your day and your life continues to be surrounded by love.

    I, like you, have lost my mother too.. so I know birthdays can be somewhat bittersweet. I'm sure she is smiling down on you with great joy!!

    Enjoy your day!!

  5. Hi Jane,
    Happy Birthday to a special lady!All the best to you today and always. I can only wish that I could
    look like you when I turn 60! Love,Lorraine

  6. Jane thanks so much for taking a moment to share your thoughts with us on your special day. You're right it's all about living and your family and friends - as Sam Lindsy said, it's about the journey and yours has been amazing so far. Thank you for letting us come along for the ride- Wishing you a wonderful evening and a year ahead that brings even more success and wishes coming true.

  7. Dear Jane Seymour,

    My name is Camille Stephens, I live in Medicine Hat, Alberta Canada. I am 9 years old. My birthday was on February 2nd. We are 13 days apart. I just wanted to wish you a happy birthday and I hope that all your birthday wishes come true.

    Two years ago, we went to Disneyland and we drove to Malibu. I really loved it.
    My Mum and I are huge fans of yours! I have seen all the seasons of Dr Quinn and some of your movies. One of my favourite is “Somewhere in time“. I am about to start watching “East of Eden“.
    My Mum has two of your books :”Remarkable changes” and ‘Making yourself at home”. I really like the last one, I love to look at all the beautiful pictures of you and your family and your house.
    We wanted to watch your last movie “Perfectly Prudence” and “Dear Prudence” but we don’t have cable TV and we could not find the movies on DVD.
    I really would love it if you could send me a picture of yourself with your autograph.
    I love to draw, I just wish I had your talent.

    Have a wonderful birthday.
    Love from Camille.

  8. Hi Jane

    up in playing my guitar writing a totally differant style of music, after 7 yr break!
    You surely are an inspiration and a gift to us
    Much Love

May all your wishes come true today and for the coming year ahead! Warmly, Kelly and Samantha

  19. And so, now, this is it. You're finally 60th. How much time spent being afraid of this age. Me, afraid, could you believe it? it frightens me, and not you. I remember a journalist asking you how would you deal the 60th. An you replied with skinny jeans, a jacket and boots knee-high. You're 60th and you stll look like 30th.

    I remember the first time I saw you; your smile, your bright complexion; your amazinh hair, falling down your shoulders. And those eyes. Those eyes were my undoing! I felt immediately a rush of love for you.

    And I still love you now, after 14 years. I love everything about you, the sweet things and the bad ones.

    I love your hair - your smile - your eyes - your skin - your Amarige perfum.

    I love your english accent, the way you want to be funny when you said "They stole my ca-ah-r!".

    I love the way you move your hair from your shouder when you want to show the OH necklace.

    I love the way you always walk on the highest heels, your cocktail dresses.

    I love your "I'm not a lady, I'm a doctor", your "Call me Kitty Cat!".

    I love the way you always look at James, the way you hug Katie or you talk about the twins.

    I love the way you dance, the way you act, that soft, angelic voice with which you sing.

    I love the way you speak, the way you treat people.

    I love how you hug James under paparazzi's "click", just to show how he's only yours.

    I love the way you were Michaela, the way you're always different, always the same.

    I loved, I love, I will always love everything about you. <3

    I love You, 'cause you make me Fly.

    I love You, 'cause you gave me Emotions..

    I love You, 'cause you made the difference in my life.

    I love You, 'cause I can't help, but do it.

    Happy B-Day, sweet, beautiful, amazing Princess.

    - Hel. <3

  23. Hi Jane

    I'm Timothy Casey and I have been an admirer of your acting, your strength and your continuing message of keeping an open heart.

    It's very good to hear that you are not at all worried about turning 60. I had a great deal of trepidation when I turned 40, but I realize that it's okay, and that we learn and love more, appreciate more and value more with time.

    I wanted to post my musical piano improvisation I did for your birthday. I arranged it with strings and bass guitar and made a video for it on YouTube.

    I posted it on the Open Hearts Facebook page, and maybe you didn't see it, but hopefully you will be able to see it here.


    I hope your year is wonderful and I wish you and your family the best in luck and success in their endeavors. My heart is open, greatly because of you.

  24. Dear Lady Jane,

    I sent you a card already, but I'd like to take the opportunity to wish you a happy belated birthday (shame on me that I missed this post and just now got around to checking out what's new on your blog).

    Thank you so much for sharing your thoughts on your birthday and the latest and upcoming events.

    I wish you lots of success with your Open Hearts foundation. I think it's a wonderful institution.

    Love and best wishes from Germany,

  25. I apologize for being a few days late in offering my best wishes for your birthday. I hope your special day was full of love and laughter. Thanks for all that you have contributed toward making your first 60 years so meaningful. Here's wishing you 60 more!

  29. Good morning, "Perfectly" Jane,

    On the day before your birthday I became the owner of my new house. It was a special day because it was Valentine´s day and it was your birthday on the day after. I believe that when you were born your parents thougth that " what a gift from St.Valentine´s day"!

    I´m sorry for being here just today to give you a happy birhtday but things are finnaly getting to normal life again.

    Please, don´t worry with being 60! Just be yourself like you did so far! To me you will always be like Serina or Dr.Mike!

  35. Can you settle the rumor that James left you not the other way around and the kids have decided to live with him? How very interesting, seems like kids would want to live with their mom. Maybe things are not what they seem? ....

  37. Happy belated birthday to a beautiful and talented lady! So, what are you working on these days? I hope it's another movie too.
