Salma Hayek just hit a major milestone on Instagram: 25 million followers.

Yep, the 56-year-old star is already a quarter of the way to one hundred mill, and she celebrated the achievement by uploading a new video to her account. “I can’t believe it, 25 million followers!” Hayek wrote.

The Oscar-nominated actress continued, “Thank you soo soo much to every single one of you. Seeing as you all like my bikini pictures the most, here’s a bikini work out for you all. I hate exercising- but I love to celebrate good moments dancing in the water. I am genuinely moved and grateful for all your love & support.”

In the clip, the Frida star dives, swims, does leg lifts and more in a shimmering blue pool, while Lana Del Rey's “Radio” plays in the background.

Fans showed their appreciation for the video in the comments, including rapper Drake, who cheekily wrote, “Let’s get her to 50M asap.”

Only a couple days before Hayek accumulated her impressive following, she posted a photo that was taken from the same swimming session, in honor of National Bikini Day.

In her caption, the Mexico-born star wrote, “Happy #NationalBikiniDay! Can you believe the bikini has only been around for 77 years?! Let’s hope they don’t ban them too #notathrowback.”

Hayek hasn't been wasting any time since bikini season began. In fact, early last month, she shared a pic of herself lounging on a boat in a steel blue two-piece. Her caption read, “Some people don’t like grey days, but I think everyday is precious. Adore your week, no matter what it brings.”

Congrats on these impressive numbers, Salma. We hope your summer is full of swimming seshes.
