While most ladies bristle at the thought of getting older, Michelle Obama couldn’t be happier to turn 50 years old.

Earlier today (January 17) the First Lady of the United States of America took to her Twitter account with a selfie and her AARP card (American Association of Retired Persons).

Mrs. Obama captioned the shot, “Excited to join Barack in the 50+ club today… check out my @AARP card!”

Prior to her big day, Michelle told People, "I don’t feel that much differently than I did when I was younger. What I hear is that age is a number, it’s a state of mind."

However, President Obama declined to share what he’d purchased for his wife’s milestone birthday- "That's top-secret. Not even the NSA knows that."
