CALIFORNIA Governor Gavin Newsom heads the list of well-known celebrities who are celebrating their birthdays for the month of October. He turns 55 on October 10.

Elected as 40th Governor of the State of California in 2018, Newsom previously served as the state’s Lieutenant Governor, and as Mayor and Supervisor for the city of San Francisco. As mayor of San Francisco, Newsom gained national attention in 2004 when he directed the city-county clerk to issue marriage licenses to same-sex couples which violated state law passed in 2000.

In 2021, Gov. Newsom defeated a recall attempt, becoming only the second sitting governor to survive a recall election (the first one to do so was Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker in 2012). The 2021 recall election was the second in the last 20 years for California – the 2003 gubernatorial recall election, the second ever in United States history, resulted in voters replacing incumbent Gov. Gray Davis with Republican Arnold Schwarzenegger, who was the top choice among voters to replace Davis.

Newsom, who was born in San Francisco, is running for reelection as Governor for California this November. He has consistently denied rumors linking him to a run for the White House in 2024 or 2028.

Gov. Newsom is married to film director Jennifer Siebel and they have four children – Montana Tessa, Hunter, Brooklynn and Dutch.

Other celebrities who are celebrating their birthdays this month are:
