Summer is in full swing, and we’re starting to get out of our homes more, which makes celebrating birthdays even more exciting than ever. But some celebrities have such amazing houses, they want to celebrate their special day at home.
Let’s see who is having a birthday this month, and where they might be singing Happy Birthday!
Anderson Cooper has become a celebrity newsman working for CNN and CBS, and became a first time dad in April. On June 3, he is turning 53, and he’s likely to have his best year yet!
This independent minded anchorman actually bought an old fire station in 2010 and turned it into an amazing five story home in Greenwich Village, New York. He paid $4.3 million in 2010, and has renovated it to incorporate a turn of the century feel while including amazing modern decor and features. It’s a great place for Anderson to celebrate with loved ones even when he’s working hard on keeping Americans informed about important news every night.
Mark Wahlberg started out as a rapper, but he’s become one of Hollywood’s most successful actors, both financially and critically, over the last twenty years. He’s even a part owner of his family burger chain. He’s turning 49 on June 5, and hopefully Mark takes a moment to celebrate his birthday with loved ones.
His Beverly Hills mansion is so epic, there’s no reason to celebrate anywhere else. The 30,000 square foot house sits on a 6.14 acre lot, has 11 bedrooms, 18 bathrooms, wine cellar, movie theater, and library. There’s also a massive pool, basketball court, and even a putting green! There’s no need to travel when you have such a wonderful place right at home!
Rapper, designer and sometimes Christian preacher Kanye West is turning 43 on June 8. Wherever he is on his birthday, his celebration is sure to be epic because Kanye does everything to the max!
He and his wife Kim Kardashian West and their four kids live in a massive estate in LA that he describes as a “futuristic Belgian monastery”. The couple paid around $20 million for the estate after their first baby, and have remodeled, expanded and decorated it to fit Kanye’s unique style. It is now reportedly worth $60 million. If you owned a place like that, you’d certainly want to celebrate your birthday there!
Neil Patrick Harris
Neil Patrick Harris has grown up in front of the camera, so we should all wish him an especially happy birthday on June 15. The television, movie and theater actor is turning 47.
He and his husband have two kids that they raise in their amazing brownstone in New York City. The townhouse set them back $4 million, but with 8,000 square feet in the city, that’s a great deal! The family loves to go all-out for holidays big and small, so it’s a no-brainer that they’ll celebrate NPH’s birthday in a big way!
Nicole Kidman has been in Hollywood for decades, and in recent years she’s seemed to find a true and lasting peace with her country music star Keith Urban. The couple actually spends more of their time in Nashville, TN than Hollywood.
They have a lovely mansion that they bought in 2008 for $3.5 million. It includes a pool and tennis court, and beautiful landscaping in addition to 11,000 square feet of living space, seven bedrooms, 8.5 bathrooms and more. This is the perfect place to snuggle up with her husband and two girls on June 20 when she celebrates her birthday.
Meryl Streep is Hollywood royalty if anyone is. She has been nominated for a record 21 Academy Awards, winning three. And she’s been nominated for countless other awards.
Despite her international fame and respect, Meryl works hard to live a normal life, including maintaining her primary residence outside New York, in Connecticut. Maybe she’ll celebrate her 71st birthday on June 22 in this lovely home. Hopefully her four kids will be able to celebrate with her, or at least give their mom a call to say happy birthday!
You don’t need to be a celebrity to have a wonderful birthday, especially in June when the weather is perfect and it feels like the whole world is celebrating with you. Happy birthday to everyone celebrating another trip around the sun this month!
