In the most heart warming news, a suburban New York twosome will celebrate the husband’s 108th birthday today. His wife will make 105 in May. The two have been married for 82 years.

Duranord Veillard was born Feb. 28, 1907, and grew up in Les Cayes in southern Haiti, according to USA Today. He has been married to his wife, Jeanne Veillard, since 1932. The couple is thought to be the oldest couple in suburban New York City’s Rockland county.

Duranord studied law in Haiti and went on to become a judge there. He and his wife raised five children, and immigrated to the United States in 1968, settling in Spring Valley, NY. The couple has 12 grandchildren and 14 great-grandchildren between them, reports USA Today.

“He remembers everything,” said his son, Vely Veillard, 62 to the newsite. “Look at him! He don’t want to use a cane. He’s a superstar.” The couple lives with their daughter Marie Eveillard.

Although he is reportedly nearly blind and hard of hearing, Veillard’s routine may be part of his centenarian-plus status, USA Today reports:

Veillard starts his day at 5 a.m. and does five to seven pushups. For breakfast, he has a cup of tea, oatmeal and fresh fruit. Lunch and dinner consist of fish and fresh vegetables. The centenarians nap early and often.

The couple do not leave their house except to see the doctor. Neither walks without assistance. But both are looking forward to celebrating another landmark in their life.

Finally, when asked directly about the key to his long life, Veillard says simply: “That’s God,” in Haitian kreyol.
