Natalie shared the funny moment on Instagram and said: “So a lot of you might know I turned 40 at the weekend. It was very very good, I've had an amazing, amazing time with all my nearest and dearest.
“I can't thank everybody enough, they know that anyway. But I wanted to show you this because this really topped it off."
She told her 276,000 followers: "I mean when I opened the Happy 50th [card], I did think, well I don't know what I thought.
“But it was from my sister-in-law's lovely friend Sal. So Sally, you made it, you made it my best best card of the weekend. And I shall be putting it away and whacking it up in ten years.
“Mind you. you'll probably send a 60 one then. But yeah, I really appreciated it. You must have thought I looked very, very young for 50 let's be honest. Cheers.”
Natalie's followers said they could relate to what had happened and joked that she should save the card until her 50th.
One person wrote: "Nothing brings you back down to earth with a bump like a 50th card on your 40th."
Another suggested: “It'll fly by! Keep hold of it and save Sal some money. Ps Happy birthday."
A third person wrote: “You don't look 50 at all, you look so much younger love.”
While another commented: "Defintely save the card and bring it out to remind her when you're 50."
Natalie celebrated her birthday with a huge party with her loved ones including her EastEnders co-stars Jessie Wallace, Dean Gaffney and Lacey Turner.
She praised her family and shared a photo of her partner Marc and her two daughters.
Natalie captioned it: “So I’m 40. What a weekend. Filled with all my favourite human beings.
“Music, laughter, dancing and wine. Beautiful gifts. A special poem. I feel very loved, very lucky and I can’t wait to enjoy my next decade. Thank you to everyone. You know who you are."
