Celebrities are wishing former president Barack Obama a happy birthday on Friday, with “#ObamaDay” even becoming the top trending topic on Twitter. Check out tweets from stars below!

Obama is turning 56 today, and this is his first birthday since leaving office in January. Over the last eight years, he celebrated every birthday as America’s commander-in-chief. Being president, however, limited how he could mark the occasion. And while his plans to celebrate as a private citizen this time around have not been revealed, his special day is not going unnoticed on social media, where a number of famous supporters and friends are paying tribute.

Common shared one of Obama’s quotes, “We are the change that we seek,” and wrote, “Happy Birthday Mr. President and Happy #ObamaDay to everyone!” Olivia Munn posted the same quote, adding, “@BarackObama HAPPY HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!” Elizabeth Banks said, “Happy bday @BarackObama. Don’t know if you’ve heard, but things have been pretty shaky lately. We miss you guys.” Miley Cyrus offered, “Happy birthday Mr. President @BarackObama!!! We love & miss you dearly!”

“Mr. President #Happy56th Birthday! President Obama we love you!#BarackObama #ObamaDay,” tweeted La Toya Jackson. Georgie Takei posted, “Happy birthday to President @BarackObama, whose grace, thoughtfulness and compassion we miss every day.” LeBron James exclaimed, “Happy Birthday @BarackObama!! Yes we do love you! Thank you! Enjoy your day.” Zendaya also expressed, “Happy birthday to the flyest to ever do it #ObamaDay @barackobama.”

Obama’s vice president, Joe Biden, wrote, “Your service has been a great gift to the country, and your friendship and brotherhood are a great gift to me. Happy birthday, @BarackObama.” And wife and former fist lady Michelle Obama said, “Another year older, but the same phenomenal guy I married nearly 25 years ago. Happy birthday, @BarackObama — we love you so much!” She also posted a message on the website of the Obama Foundation.

“Today is Barack’s birthday, and this year, I want to do something a little different for him,” she wrote in the note to supporters. “I don’t have a card for you to sign. Instead, I have something that I know would mean even more to Barack than your well-wishes (and that’s saying something): I’m asking you to share with Barack, right now, how you’re stepping up to be a better citizen in your community. I’m asking you to share your own ‘daily act of citizenship.'” She added, “This work is what my husband is all about.
