Selena Gomez turned 21 and, let's see, what else happened on July 22 this year...

"How crazy is that?! I share my birthday with the royal baby, that's crazy!" the Spring Breakers star told E! News yesterday in New York at the launch of her Dream Out Loud fall collection for Kmart—an event that, of course, included a big birthday cake for Gomez.

Kmart didn't want Prince George getting all the attention this week, after all!

Selena Gomez, Birthday

"I'm never going to forget that ever in my life," Gomez continued. "Everyone's going to say happy birthday to me and I'm going to be like, 'But honestly, it's the royal baby's birthday.' That's what I'm going to say."

She probably won't be the only one, either, but it was sweet to see how she reacted to those 8 pounds, 6 ounces of history-making cuteness stealing the show this year.

"It's crazy, I thought that was so cool," she insisted. "I was doing press the actual day of my birthday, so they were telling me and they were keeping me updated [on the birth] and it was cool. I'm honored."

And don't worry, Selena, we won't forget you next year when the prince turns a whopping 1.

Kate Middleton and Prince William welcomed their first child at 4:24 p.m., British Summer Time, on Monday, meaning it was 10:24 a.m. in Gomez's native Texas and 8:24 a.m. in L.A., where she now makes her home.

Selena knows all about newborn-baby excitement, too—her mom, Mandy Cornett, welcomed daughter Gracie Elliot Teefey, Selena's first sibling, on June 13.

For more with Selena, tune into E! News at 7 p.m. and 11:30 p.m.—and for more on him, watch the E! News special, A Royal Family, tonight at 8 p.m.
