She is the perfect example of 99 and still young!
Known as the First Lady of Television, Betty White will always remain a legend but how do legends celebrate their birthday, especially their 99th one? Well, She has a whole 'low key' plan for it.
White's TV credits stretch right back from "Hollywood On Television" in 1949 to a voice acting role in "Forky Asks A Question" in 2019. "The Golden Girls" and "The Mary Tyler Moor Show" are just two amongst the various highlights in her career. White even has a documentary dedicated to her titled "Betty White: First Lady of Television" (2018), which talks about her life and career. In case you still didn't get enough of her, "Betty White's Pet Set" will soon be on display next month both on DVD and digital display, The Associated Press reported. The iconic actress known for her comedic timing has won five Emmy Awards including a 2010 trophy for a guest-host appearance on "Saturday Night Live."
Now as the legend turns 99, fans were left wondering how she intends to spend her birthday. Her first plan is to allow herself to stay up late, "Since I am turning 99, I can stay up as late as I want without asking permission!," she said in an interview with The Associated Press.
When asked about her other plans for the day she expressed that she would like to keep things low-key which includes feeding a pair of ducks that regularly visit her Los Angeles-area home. She also plans to end the day with a birthday meal which includes a hot dog and french fries brought in along with a bouquet of roses from her longtime friend and agent, Jeff Witjas.
While the 99-year-old wants to keep her celebrations simple, the internet is busy paying tributes to her. People.com released a whole e-album dedicated to white titled, 'Betty White's Life in Photos'. Users from all over took to Twitter to wish the TV queen, "Happy 99th Birthday to a true American sweetheart, one of the most beloved and treasured performers of our times, the extraordinary Betty White!

Brava!" a user said, while another wrote, "I would love to wish a very happy birthday to a lady who I absolutely love and adore and am a huge fan of @BettyMWhite hope your special day is as amazing and unique as yourself happy birthday."
