doris day 88 Doris Day: Happy 89th (we think) birthday, ladyTuesday (April 3) is Doris Day’s birthday. But, depending on who you ask, her actual age is up for debate. Most think it’s now 89, but others claim the singer/actress was actually born in 1924, which would make her a youngster at 88.

NPR’s Terry Gross interviewed Day for a chat that aired on Monday and TCM is playing Day movies  — including several with frequent co-star Rock Hudson — throughout the week.

Looking for more permanence? Warmer Home Video released a four-DVD set this week featuring Day’s biggest flicks and a new Day CD featuring 31 songs “curated by Day herself” is also making a bow.

In her interview with NPR, Day reflected on the success of her song “Que Sera Sera”:

“I thought that was wonderful, because it became that because of children. And then I understood it. Because it was for our child in the movie. Then I realized, maybe it isn’t a favorite song of mine, but people loved it. And kids loved it. And it was perfect for the film. So I can’t say that it’s a favorite song of mine, but, boy, it sure did something.”
