The Guinness World Records on Wednesday confirmed Emilio Flores Marquez from Puerto Rico as the oldest living person in the world.

Marquez is official 112 years and 326 days old. He was born on August 8, 1908, in Carolina, Puerto Rico.

This breaks the previous record held by Romania’s Dumitru Comănescu, who died at the age of 111 years 219 days.

According to the Guinness World Records website, Marquez is the second oldest of 11 children born to Alberto Flores Melendez and Margarita Márquez-Garcia.

He married for 75 years before his wife died in 2010. They had four children, two of whom are still alive and well.

He currently lives with the two children, Tirsa and “Millito,” who take care of him in Rio Piedras, Puerto Rico.
