Hello, it’s grandma Adele! The Grammy winning singer celebrated her 29th birthday on Friday, by sharing a hilarious photo collage of her dressed as an eldery woman. As evident by the now-trending social media post, the star underwent a rather realistic-looking grandmother makeover for her big day. Clad with prosthetics and all, Adele still managed to look amusingly adorable.

The superstar posted a collage of her posing in a short frizzy red and grey wig, reading glasses, a pink knitted sweater and pearls. It seems she even went as far as to enlist a special effects makeup team to complete her realistic transformation. Wrinkles and all, the “Hello” singer hammed it up in her four-pic post, which received over a million likes on her Instagram. “Nearly 30!” she wrote alongside the picture, which appeared across her social media platforms. “Thanks for the well wishes. See you soon x.”

In the photos, Adele isn’t merely appearing as an older version of herself, but as a tribute to one of British comedian Catherine Tate’s beloved characters. Adele was clearly channeling “Joannie ‘Nan’ Taylor,” from the comedy sketch series The Catherine Tate Show. Catherine plays ‘Nan,’ a feisty older woman who swears and rants in a cockney accent. Adele is, of course, known for her trademark spunk and great sense of humor.

Putting on an alter ego for her birthday isn’t anything new for Adele, who is mom to her 4-year-old son Angelo with her husband Simon Konecki. The London-bred performer dressed as George Michael for her 27th birthday, donning aviator shades, a faux goatee and slicked backed hair. Her look was reminiscent of George's iconic 1980s style, which she most definitely admired. "Thank you for the birthday wishes I had a wonderful time!” she wrote with the fun pic. “I was my hero x #gottahavefaith.”

This past February, Adele performed an emotional tribute to the late singer at the 2017 Grammy Awards. She famously restarted her performance of his 1997 hit song “Fastlove” after feeling like she’d messed up. "I'm sorry. I can't mess this up for him," she told the crowd. "Can we start again?" Of course, her second attempt was flawless.
