The View‘s message comes one day after Goldberg celebrated her upcoming birthday on Friday’s episode of the show with a “Studio 66”-themed disco party, complete with appearances from Jennifer Lopez‘s mom, Guadalupe “Lupe” Rodríguez — whom Goldberg called a “View superfan” — and Khloé Kardashian, who recorded a birthday message for the host.

“I am wishing you the most magical, beautiful and blessed birthday. I hope you have the best year, that you’re healthy, you’re happy and that you are just staying as fabulous as ever,” Kardashian, 37, said. “We all love, adore and appreciate you for all that you do and all that you give us.”

Goldberg began cohosting The View in 2007, and recently signed on to extend her gig for four more seasons. She currently sits on the panel alongside Joy Behar, Sunny Hostin and Sara Haines.
