George H.W. Bush rang in his 90th birthday in major style!

The former president celebrated his special day by jumping from a helicopter over Kennebunkport, Maine. Bush made the jump at 6,000 feet, accompanied by former members of the U.S. Army Parachute Team, the Golden Knights.

When he landed, his entire family was gathered waiting for him.

The birthday boy shared his excitement about his skydiving adventure on Twitter earlier in the morning, writing, "It's a wonderful day in Maine— in fact, nice enough for a parachute jump."

Proud granddaughter Jenna Bush Hager posted an adorable photo as she gave her grandpa birthday a sweet embrace. "Happiest bdays Gamps!! The 90-year-old young skydiver. Couldn't love a man more."

The 41st president, who is mainly confined to a wheelchair because of Parkinson's disease, has made the jump eight times and commemorated his 75th, 80th and 85th birthdays by taking the plunge, promising to do it once more this year.

Happy Birthday, Mr. Bush!
