Happy birthday, Betty White!
The television legend turned 97 years old on Thursday and is planning on celebrating in the best (and classiest!) way ever.
“Betty is feeling great,” a rep for White tells PEOPLE. “She has the absolute best sense of humor.”
White is planning on ringing in the big day with a poker night with close friends whom she’s played with for years. And obviously a birthday wouldn’t be complete without cake! There will be plenty of cake to go around, as well, the rep confirms.
Last September, White took the stage at the 2018 Emmy Awards and reflected on her senior status.
“Somebody said something the other day about first lady of television, and I took it as a big compliment,” she said.
Then came the punchline: “And then I heard her talking to her daughter a little later, and she said, ‘First lady, she’s that old. She was the first one way back.’
White reflected on her extraordinary career. “It’s incredible that I’m still in this business and you are still putting up with me … It’s incredible that you can stay in a career this long and still have people put up with you. I wish they did that at home.”
