If this doesn’t deserve a round of applause, we don’t know what does!
Today is a big day for George H.W. Bush! Today he becomes the first president in United States history to reach the impressive age of 94.
Despite lingering health troubles and widespread fears that he’d be quick to follow Barbara, his wife of 73 years, after she passed away in April, we are happy to report that the 41st president seems determined to stick around for as long as possible.
Other long-living presidents include Gerald Ford, who died at the age of 93 years and 165 days, and Ronald Reagan, who lived for 93 years and 120 days, according to The Washington Post. Jimmy Carter, born four months after Bush, is set to turn 94 on Oct. 1st this year.
WATCH: The Bush Family Nicknames Are Hysterical
Bush is reportedly celebrating his birthday with his family at their home in Kennebunkport, Maine.
This morning, Jenna Bush Hager shared a photo of her grandfather enjoying his birthday with her oldest daughter, five-year-old Mila.
“Happiest 94th to our Gamps—the anchor of our family, our compass,” Bush Hager captioned a photo of him embracing Mila. “I’ve loved being with you in your favorite place, by the magnificent sea. “
Happy birthday, Mr. President! We hope you enjoy your day.
