Independence Day is not just about fireworks, barbecues and being patriotic. For some people the holiday is all about them because it’s also their birthday.

Check out 9 celebrities who can pretend all those July 4th fireworks are to commemorate their most recent journey around the sun.

Post Malone

The rapper/singer has enjoyed a meteoric rise since dropping his debut studio album Stoneyin 2016. He’s since sold over 60 million records and earned four Grammy nominations. No doubt Malone’s upcoming 24thbirthday will be a blast. Congratulations!

Malia Obama

Perhaps no one is looking forward to July 4thmore this year than President Barack Obama’s eldest child. The former first daughter turns 21 and will finally be able to legally drink in the United States. Partying with the Secret Service is a patriotic honor.

Mike “The Situation” Sorrentino

It won’t be a true Independence Day for the Jersey Shorestar as he’s in the midst of serving his eight-month prison sentence for tax evasion. But hopefully The Situation can still celebrate turning 37 with a little GTL (gym, tan, laundry), assuming the warden gives the ok.

Geraldo Rivera

The former Fox News host turns 76.

Gloria Stuart

The Titanic actress was born on July 4, 1910. While she passed away at the age of 100 in 2010, her fame and our hearts will go on.

Neil Simon

The playwright and screenwriter was responsible for comedies such as "The Odd Couple," "Barefoot in the Park," and "Brighton Beach Memoirs." Simon passed away in 2018 at the age of 91.

George Steinbrenner

As the iconic owner of the New York Yankees for 37 years, Steinbrenner saw the team win 7 World Series championships and 11 pennants. He died nine days after his 80th birthday in 2010.

Calvin Coolidge

As the 30th President of the United States, Coolidge is the only one born on the Fourth of July. While his policies helped usher in the growth and prosperity of the roaring ‘20s, they are also partly to blame for the Great Depression that ensued months after he left office in 1929. Coolidge died in 1933 at the age of 61.

Ann Landers/Dear Abby

Twins sisters Esther "Eppie" Friedman Lederer and Pauline Phillips were born on July 4th, 1918 (same as Captain America) and used pen names to write the popular advice columns "Dear Abby" and "Ann Landers" respectively. Natalie Portman will direct and star as both sisters in an upcoming biopic.
