The Fourth of July is one of the most widely celebrated holidays in the United States. Everybody gets together to eat hot dogs, barbecue, and celebrate with fireworks and plenty of red, white, and blue. It is America's birthday after all. For some celebrities, Independence Day is about more than celebrating American heritage; it's also about celebrating their own birthdays. Having a birthday on a holiday is a highly contested debate. Some people love it because the whole world gets together to party, whereas others are disappointed because it steals the thunder of their day. 

Regardless, this year's celebrations are going to look a little different than previous observances. Hopefully, these celebs will be able to enjoy their day and have some fun, despite the craziness of the world. 

At least people born on the Fourth of July already have a built-in theme for their special day. Most of these celebrities have almost nothing in common -- outside of the fact they share a birthday. From reality stars to supermodels, to actors to athletes, all of these 15 celebs have a July 4 birthday. 

The Fourth of July is one of the biggest parties of the year. Unfortunately, many bars and restaurants across the country are closed because of the global health issue -- so everyone is going to have to get creative with how they celebrate. There are plenty of fun at-home activities people can consider for birthdays and holidays. Try baking a red, white, and blue cake or do some free self-care at home. However they celebrate, we hope that these 15 celebrities who share a birthday with the US enjoy their day.
