It's a banner winter for incredibly youthful-looking people turning 50. First, Brad Pitt hit the mark in December. And on Friday, First Lady Michelle Obama officially became a quinquagenarian.

If this information makes you feel alarmed, don't be! Michelle Obama happens to be incredibly youthful for her age. In fact, she might be the youngest 50-year-old we know. Here's why:

She rolls her eyes just like a teen



She dances like a teen, too



And sometimes she dances like a puppet



Her #TBT game is on point



She loves making faces
