Betty White gets ready to celebrate.
The legendary comedy actress turns 99 on January 17, and like many over the past few months, she will spend her birthday indoors and with limited people around due to the ongoing spread of coronavirus.
The “Golden Girls” star recently spoke with Entertainment Tonight and revealed exactly how she would celebrate her big day.
“You probably did not ask, but I’m telling you anyway,” White joked. “What am I doing for my birthday? Running a mile every morning has been restricted by COVID, so I’m working on getting ‘The Pet Set’ released again and feeding the two ducks that come to me every day.”
BETTY WHITE, 98, SAYS she is blessed with incredible health in the midst of the coronavirus pandemic
The two activities go hand in hand, as “The Pet Set” was White’s animal-positive series, which included talk about pet care, wildlife conservation and visits from celebrities, and an abundance of animals both domesticated, such as dogs and cats, and wild as elephants, bears, gorillas and kangaroos, the outlet reports.
On February 23, the series will be available on DVD and streaming platforms, marking the show’s 50th anniversary.
Among the show’s producers was Allen Ludden, White’s deceased husband.
“‘The Pet Set’ is one of my favorite shows,” the legendary star said in a press release received by the outlet. “I’m excited to see it again after all these years.”
BETTY WHITE SAFE, I QUARANTINE AM CORONAVIRUS PANDEMIC: REPORT
While the pandemic keeps White indoors and her age puts her at higher risk of getting the new virus, White said in March last year that she looked on the bright side.
“I’m blessed with incredible health,” America’s girlfriend told Closer Weekly. “It’s something you really appreciate.”
Entertainer and friend Tom Sullivan also told the outlet that the former “Golden Girls” and “Mary Tyler Moore Show” star has stayed busy while in safety.
“She reads the front page of the LA Times to cover,” he shared. “She literally owns thousands of crossword puzzles and makes them constant to keep her head from jumping. This is really serious with her.”

“She has tried to zoom her Scrabble game with her friends, but it is not quite the same,” added a close friend.
The friend also revealed that the COVID-19 crisis has made the star see life in a completely different way.

“Betty’s message to the world is to slow down and enjoy what you have: family, friends, your pets,” the source said. “She said the pandemic is serious, but we’re gotten worse. It’s Mother Nature’s way of asking us all to slow down.”
