Rob Lowe, Tamar Braxton, and Other Celebrities Born on St. Patrick’s Day
Typically, on St. Patrick’s Day, people dress from head to toe in green and spend the entire day partying with friends. However, there are plenty of people — including celebrities like Rob Lowe — who celebrate themselves on this non-federal holiday as their birthday just so happens to be on the luckiest day of the year.
So, which A-listers had the luck of the Irish on their side when they were born? Read on below to find out.
Rob Lowe is one of a few stars whose birthday is on St. Patrick’s Day
No matter your taste in films or television shows, chances are, you’re familiar with Rob Lowe’s work.
The actor was born on March 17, 1964, and rose to fame in the 1980s, starring in movies such as The Outsiders (1983), Class (1983), St. Elmo’s Fire (1985), About Last Night… (1986), and Square Dance (1987). By starring in these films and being part of the famed Brat Pack, Lowe had become an established Hollywood star by the late ’80s.
However, his addiction to alcohol and his 1988 sex tape scandal caused his career and public image to decline. Luckily for Lowe, his career got back on track in the late 1990s after he landed the role of Sam Seaborn on The West Wing.
Since then, Lowe has continued gracing television screens, starring in shows such as Parks and Recreation and Code Black. Currently, he stars as Owen Strand in the critically acclaimed Fox drama 9-1-1: Lone Star.

In addition to the actor, several well-known A-listers were born on the luckiest day of the year, including Tamar Braxton.
For those of you who don’t know, Braxton is a reality star/ R&B singer. She was born in 1977 and rose to prominence in her family’s singing group, The Braxtons. In 2000, she released her debut album Tamar, which hit No. 42 on the Billboard charts.
Almost a decade later, Braxton and her sisters landed their own television show Braxton Family Values which became a hit and made her a pop culture icon.
Another well-known figure whose birthday is on St. Patrick’s Day is Rob Kardashian. The youngest Kardashian sibling was born in 1987 and rose to fame starring on his family’s hit E! reality series Keeping Up With the Kardashians.
Though he’s avoided the spotlight in recent years, Kardashian has since reemerged into the public eye. Nowadays, he spends his time being a hands-on father to his daughter Dream and occasionally makes appearances in his famous sisters’ social media posts as well on KUWTK.
