Actress Doris Day just discovered her real age after believing she was 93

Ever struggle to remember how old you are when someone asks? Well, imagine finding this out…

Actress, singer, and all-round legend Doris Day was surprised to learn that she has been celebrating the wrong birthday for the last 93 years. Having believed that she was born on April 3rd, 1924 she would have been celebrating her 93rd birthday today.

However, it’s been discovered, after her birth certificate was found at the Ohio’s Office of Vital Statistics, that she was actually born in 1922, making her 95-years-old.

She had a great responses after learning the news,

“I’ve always said that age is just a number and I have never paid much attention to birthdays, but it’s great to finally know how old I really am!”

According to The Guardian, Charley Cullen Walters, a spokesperson for Doris said:

“There has long been speculation and rumours about Doris’s age and we get this question a lot; looks like we finally have the answer.

The story I have heard the most is that at one point Doris was up for a role when quite young and her age may have been miswritten on the audition form. We don’t know if that’s correct, but if so it could’ve simply stuck for all these years.”

At 95 it probably doesn’t matter to her, but could you imagine finding that out earlier in life – you’d be raging!
