A number of celebrity birthdays make this 17th of January a very special occasion for The Hollywood Gossip. After all, who would expect that the following stars (and we're using the term loosely in some cases) would share a day of birth?
People of all ages and walks of life, such as ...
... adopted son of the world's biggest movie star Connor Cruise (14)!
... Kim Kardashian sex tape (and future reality show) star Ray J (28)!
... Dancing with the Stars god and Karina Smirnoff fiance Maksim Chmerkovskiy (29)!
... faux trailer trash, Pamela Anderson ex, and Waffle House brawler Kid Rock (38)!
... incoming First Lady of the United States Michelle Obama (45)!
