It’s been officially 26 years since Lady Gaga was ‘Born This Way!’

But while she may have partied like a rockstar with a HUGE star-studded party in LA last year – this time around she opted for something much more low key…

Kicking the not-so-wild celebrations into swing just before she turned the milestone, the singer posted a snap on Twitter of her tucking into her birthday cake a little early,

"This is how it feels turning 26 in three and a half hours. Ha! (sic)".

And by the time the big day itself came around, the ‘Poker Face’ star was clearly keen to work off some of that sugar and reportedly hit up a private spin class!

"Her friends filled the studio, and they had a blast," a source told US Weekly of her trip to Soul Cycle in West Hollywood.

"She requested [Bruce Springsteen's] 'Thunder Road' because it's one of her favorite songs."

And the hitmaker is said to have skipped any crazy parties to mark the occasion with a low-key family dinner instead.

"It was just a small thing with her family," the source added. "Her mother cooked."

Well, let’s hope she’s got something more Gaga planned for the weekend!
