Mariah Carey didn’t let social distancing keep her from celebrating her birthday this year.
On Friday, March 27, Carey celebrated her 50th birthday with her twins, Moroccan and Monroe. In a post on Instagram, Carey and the kids are seen wearing party hats and Carey is pictured happily in front of two cakes – one with the number “12” and one that read “Happy anniversary Mariah.” The singer, now 50, prefers to refer to her birthday as her anniversary.
“I don’t count years but I definitely rebuke them… I have anniversaries, not birthdays, because I celebrate life, darling,” she told Observer in 2014.
Carey captioned the post, “Spent 3.27 at home with my family and virtually with fans and friends from all over the world. Thank you for all the love eternally12”
A slew of her celebrity friends wished her well, including Reese Witherspoon, Millie Bobby Brown, Jennifer Hudson and Naomi Campbell.
The singer also spent her birthday working on her music, posting on Instagram earlier in the day, “Starting 327 with a new song,” and reminding her followers to “#stayhome.”
