(January 17, 2016) — The birthday wishes are flowing freely for America’s favorite nonagenarian, Betty White, who turned 94 on Sunday.

The actress — who has worked in show business since the 1940s and may be best known for her role as the sweet and clueless Rose on “The Golden Girls” — kicked off her birthday week with an appearance on “The Late Late Show with James Corden.”

She tucked herself between dashing zookeeper and television personality Jack Hanna and New York Knicks forward Amar’e Stoudemire, according to her Twitter account. (She joined Twitter in 2012 and has 1.26 million followers.)

Could her 90s get any better?

White was recognized by the Guinness World Records in December 2013 for the longest TV career for a female entertainer.

For her 93rd birthday in 2015, the cast and crew on the set of her now-canceled sitcom “Hot in Cleveland” greeted her with a choreographed hula dance number and a banner reading “Happy Birthday Betty.” And it was all caught on video.

She made out with “American Sniper” star Bradley Cooper in a “Saturday Night Live” skit celebrating the show’s 40th anniversary in February 2015. She was awarded a Lifetime Achievement Award at the 42nd annual Daytime Emmy Awards in April 2015. And she joined Instagram in June 2015 and already has 296,000 followers.

White has no plans to stop working. “Retirement is not in my vocabulary,” she’s been quoted as saying.
