To Doris Day's countless fans, the cute and ever so lovely Doris Day who starred in ‘Pillow Talk’ and ‘Move Over Darling’ is ageless. But singer-actress turns 95-years-of-age on Monday, which itself was a birthday surprise to even the star herself, who has long pegged her age to a birthdate in the year of 1924 that would make her 93. News sources and media outlets have variously reported her as between 93 and 95.

A copy of Day's birth certificate, which was obtained by ‘The Associated Press’ from the Vital Stat’s office in Ohio, settles the issue: Doris Mary Kappelhoff, her name before she was famous, was born on 3rd April, in the year of 1922, which makes her 95-years-old. Her parents were Alma and William Kappelhoff of Cincinnati.

In a statement, yesterday, the actress-singer said that she has always believed that age is just a number and that she has never paid much heed to birthdays, but despite all, it's great to finally know how old she really was.

The 95-year-old actress-singer is in excellent company with other vibrant Hollywood superstars who are lucky enough to reach that milestone year, including Betty White, a close friend of Day’s, and Carl Reiner.

Charley Cullen Walters, Doris Day’s spokesperson for a long time also revealed on Sunday that there have long been rumors and speculations about Doris' age and that they get this question a lot. Cullen further said that it looks like they finally have the answer. He also revealed about Betty White and Doris Day’s long running joke about Betty White being 2 years older but with the latest revelations, that is not the case anymore.
