The world's oldest living man has celebrated his 115th birthday. Jiroemon Kimura, of Japan, is not only the world's oldest living man, he's the third-oldest man in recorded history.
"I'm delighted beyond words," Kimura said of his milestone, according to Yahoo! news.
But Kimura is not the world's oldest living person. Georgia resident Besse Cooper has Kimura beat by one year. She was born August 26, 1896.
Kimura has fathered 7 children, has 14 grandchildren, 25 great-grandchildren, and 13 great-great-grandchildren. He says the secret to a long life is eating small portions. Kimura worked at a post office for 38 years before becoming a farmer, which he was until he was 90 years old.
