Happy birthday, Sophia Grace! The British YouTube star who became a regular ‘Ellen’ guest turns 13 on April 18. Celebrate her birthday by taking a look back at the amazing year she’s had!
Ellen DeGeneres‘ adorable little prodigy Sophia Grace Brownlee isn’t so little anymore! It seems like yesterday she was first appearing on Ellen as an 8-year-old with her cousin Rosie McClelland, but Sophia is already turning 13 years old. April 18 marks the British star’s birthday, and considering how incredible her last year has been, we can only bet that she’ll have one heck of a celebration!
After kicking off her year with a trip to Universal Studios for her 12th birthday, things only got more and more awesome for Sophia Grace. She got to hang out with Ariana Grande and Jaden Smith…and that doesn’t even count the people Sophia met at the award shows she attended!
When Sophia Grace and Rosie made a return to Ellen in November — after a year of not being on the show — Ellen gave them passes to the American Music Awards and asked them to once again be her red carpet correspondents. While they were there, Sophia got to chat it up with One Direction, pose like models with Gigi Hadid, and fangirl with Meghan Trainor. Talk about making us jealous!
Sophia also got to attend the Kids Choice Awards and hang out with the cast of Nickelodeon’s School of Rock in March, then the iHeartRadio Music Awards just a few weeks later. Needless to say, she had one heck of a star-studded year!
As if Sophia hasn’t done enough in the last year, she’s even boosting her own career too (yes, at only 13 years old!). Sophia began a YouTube show in February called Pop Star Treats, and she just revealed that she’s releasing her own studio album later this year. Remember her 2012 single “Girls Just Gotta Have Fun”? Well, looks like we’ll be getting an entire CD full of songs just like that!
Although Sophia didn’t say when her album will be released, she did say that she’ll be dropping her new single, “Girl In The Mirror,” this summer. With her own career taking off, we can only imagine how amazing this next year will be for Sophia! Happy birthday, superstar!
