Joy Behar's celebrating her 81st birthday and style, but fans have been left completely shocked after she revealed her age.

A day before she turned 81, Behar appeared on an episode of The View in order to commemorate the big day. As she stepped onto the stage, fans went wild as a cheerful tune played in the background. The show even managed to get a "Happy Birthday Joy" sign for that extra bit of decor - just in case you didn't know it was Behar's birthday.

Sara Haines said "It's Joy's birthday," as the host sat down looking particularly miserable about what was supposed to be a momentous occasion.

Behar then buried her head into her hands, saying, "Oh, my God!"

Ana Navarro knew that the 81-year-old hates days such as this one so she let the audience know saying: "I know you hate to talk about your birthday but today is your birthday!"

"...Just do the show," Behar prompted, however, she wasn't going to get away with it that easily as Sunny Hostin questioned why she wasn't excited.

"I can't get excited. I'm just glad I’m alive, okay?" Behar added. "You know, you get to a point where you wake up in the morning saying, 'I'm still here, my God!'"

Have a look at the clip of the celebrations below:

As the show commenced, Behar's birthday was a recurring topic throughout the entire episode, with guests even joining in on the festivities.

Actress Anne Hathaway, best known for her roles in The Devil Wears Prada and The Hustle, gifted her some beautiful flowers, while in a segment later on in the show, Haines, Navarro, Hostin and Alyssa Farah Griffin held an auction in which they sold off personal items with the birthday girl for charity.

And to end the episode, the hosts celebrated by sharing some birthday cannolis for the audience as well as pulling out a cannoli cake for all the co-hosts to enjoy.

Behar kindly even plugged the business that supplied all the goods, stating: "[Veniero's Pastry has] been around since the year I was born, 1894!"

She continued: "Please check them out because they deliver nationwide and I don't want to be the only one indulging today. Cannoli cream is the best!"

After the episode hit our screens, it seems as though the conversation switched to talking about how amazing Behar looks for her age - and rightfully so, she looks amazing!

"Wow i didn’t know she was that old. She looks great. Happy Birthday Joy," wrote one user while another added: "Wow she is that old ...didn't know that!!! Well she is a lovely lady ...I like her."

Over on Facebook, people were saying the same thing too.

"Wow she looks great at 81 years old. Happy belated birthday!!" this user said.

Another added: "Happy Birthday! You looks fabulous!"

In an interview last year on her 80th birthday, the TV host told PEOPLE that despite getting older, she doesn't plan on slowing down.

"I just signed a contract so I'll be here for a while," she told the outlet. "I have no plans to retire."

"It's really, you know, something that is an important show in many ways," she said of the daytime talk show, specifically. "Sometimes I don't believe that, as I've been here since the beginning, but we're the most-watched show in daytime. Most-watched!"

"I'm happy to be a part of it. So no, I'm not going anywhere. I'm having a good time," she added.
