Happy birthday, Hova! Jay Z celebrated his 47th birthday with what appeared to be a low-key dinner at Republique restaurant in Los Angeles on Saturday, Dec. 3, 2016.

The birthday boy and his wife Beyonce weren't seen coming to or leaving the venue, but some of their celebrity pals were.

Bey's former Destiny's Child group mate Kelly Rowland gave photogs a smile and a wave as she drove up with her hubby Tim Witherspoon.

The "Lemonade" singer's mom Tina Knowles, now Lawson, arrived with her husband Richard Lawson.

We're not sure how hungry they were for dinner because earlier in the afternoon, the lovebirds made a pit stop for wings.

"When your walk on the wild side is having some hot wings on a Saturday afternoon at a place called 'Wild Wings,'" Tina, 62, captioned the pre-birthday party meal.

Jay Z had all of the windows of the restaurant covered by huge green tarps for privacy, so there wasn't much to report from inside the bash.

But, Kelly and Tina were spotted leaving together with their men at the end of the evening.


Dec. 4 is the "Encore" rapper's actual birthday.
