President George H.W. Bush turned 91-years-old on Friday, but unlike his wife Barbara who turned 90 a week earlier with a star-studded party, kept things pretty low key.
President Bush received tributes from his children and grandchildren on social media, most notably sons George and Jeb and granddaughter Jenna.
‘Birthday Selfie with the greatest Gampy on his 91st!’ wrote Today correspondent Jenna on Instagram, attaching a photo of her and sister Barbara with their grandfather.

Presidential hopeful Jeb wrote; ‘To the greatest man I’ve ever known. Happy Birthday, Dad.’
And son George wrote of his father; ‘Happy 91st birthday to a great man.’
On Monday, the former first lady celebrated her 90th birthday at the family’s Maine compound. Soon thereafter, she found herself surrounded by some big name friends at an evening of food and entertainment in her honor.
In attendance at the night’s festivities were Desperate Housewives star Teri Hatcher, country music star and actress Reba McEntire, Christian singer/songwriter Michael W. Smith and Christian singer/crossover pop songstress Amy Grant.
Mrs Bush told her granddaughter, presenter Jenna Bush Hager, in an interview for Today that she’s had a great life with former president George H.W. Bush.
‘I’ve been the luckiest woman in the world, truthfully. And I know it,’ she said. Mrs Bush met her husband, George HW Bush, at a school dance when she was just 16. She recalled thinking that he was ‘so beautiful’.

But unlike her husband on his 90th birthday, the nonagenarian quashed any idea that she would also be taking a skydive.
During the interview with her granddaughter, Mrs Bush also shared memories of her first date with her husband, who borrowed a car with a radio just in case they wouldn’t have anything to talk about.
‘And he tells the world now that I’ve not stopped talking in 75 years,’ she joked. The couple celebrated their 70th wedding anniversary earlier this year.
Daughter Doro Bush told People that Barbara is dedicated to caring for George Bush Sr, who is now in a wheelchair with Parkinson’s Disease.
Doro said: ‘While his memory is fading, his love of others, especially my mom, is powerful… and Mom does everything she can to color his world.’
The former first lady said she knew that she had a ‘grandmotherly image’ when she was first lady but was not fussed, as she preferred not to dye her hair so she could go swimming and play golf.
And her ever-present pearls, she said, were there to ‘cover the wrinkles’ but she joked that they were no longer working so well as ‘you can’t wear pearls all over your face’.
