Sunday, Jan. 17 marks Betty White’s 99th birthday, and the TV icon is being showered with love on social media.
In fact, so many of the “Golden Girls” star’s fans have been paying tribute on Twitter that White has been trending.
Prior to the big day, White shared her birthday plans with ET.
“You probably didn’t ask, but I’ll tell you anyway,” White teased. “What am I doing for my birthday? Running a mile each morning has been curtailed by COVID, so I am working on getting ‘The Pet Set’ re-released, and feeding the two ducks who come to visit me every day.”
She later told Associated Press, “Since I am turning 99, I can stay up as late as I want without asking permission.”
Ryan Reynolds celebrated White by sharing the clip below to his Instagram stories.
“We made this 12 years ago. Betty turns 99 today, but she is 100 per cent the funniest person on the planet,” he wrote.
From Craig Ferguson to William Shatner and her “Mary Tyler Moore Show” co-star Ed Asner, check out a sampling of some of the celebs who’ve been taking to Twitter to honour White on her milestone 99th.
