Happy Birthday, Jade Thirlwall

December 26th marks Little Mix member Jade Thirlwall’s 24th birthday! Let’s recap all of the birthday festivities that took place today.

As per tradition, Jade spent some of her day participating in a Boxing Day dip in support of Cancer Connections, a charity based in South Tyneside. It was so generous of her to give up time from her special day to support a worthy cause. Plus, she looked super cute dressed up as a penguin!

Fans have been tweeting some sweet birthday messages under the hashtag #HappyBirthdayJade. As usual, Mixers poured out their support and love all day long. Here are some of our favourites:

Jade’s boyfriend, Jed Elliott of The Struts, also posted a super sweet message and an adorable collage:

One of our favourite things about Jade is her incredible vocal talent. So what better day to appreciate Jade’s heavenly vocals in ‘Secret Love Song’?

This past year has been remarkably successful for Jade and the girls of Little Mix. The first part of 2016 was spent embarking on the biggest girl group tour of this decade, The ‘Get Weird’ Tour. Then, the girls finally dropped their long-awaited fourth album, Glory Days, and blew us all away. Read more about Little Mix’s adventures this year in our Little Mix Year in Review.

Here’s what Jade had to say in response to all of the birthday love:

All of us at CelebMix would like to wish Jade a very happy 24th birthday. Thank you for continually inspiring us with your insane vocal talent, kindness, and generosity.
