Former President George H.W. Bush is celebrating his birthday today — and it's a record setter.

The senior Bush is the first president to reach 94 years of age. He might not be the only former president to hit that mark — former President Jimmy Carter turns 94 on Oct. 1 — but the other surviving presidents are far behind. His son, George W. Bush, and Bill Clinton are 71. So is Donald Trump. Barack Obama is only 56.

Bush, who observed his late wife Barbara's 93rd birthday Friday, planned to celebrate his milestone in his family home in Kennebunkport, Maine. A separate celebration was scheduled for 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. today at the George H.W. Bush Presidential Library and Museum at Texas A&M in College Station.
