The world’s oldest person just got a little bit older. Kane Tanaka already held the record for the world’s oldest person. With the celebration of her 117th birthday on Sunday, she just extended her own record.

Tanaka celebrated the milestone birthday at a nursing home in Fukuoka in southern Japan. She had a party with her friends and the nursing home staff, which included a big birthday cake. After she took a bite, she told everyone, “Tasty. I want some more.”

According to Guinness World Records, Tanaka was recorded as the world’s oldest living person at 116 years 66 days old on March 9, 2019. With this birthday, she simply extends her record to 117 years old and counting.

She hasn’t quite caught up to the record for the oldest person ever; that record is held by Jeanne Louise Calment, who lived to be 122 years old. But, at this rate, there’s a good chance Tanaka will catch up.

Tanaka was born in 1903 and had five children. In 2016 she told The San Diego Union-Tribune that she credits her long life to her faith in God. In 2018, she told Newsweek she also believes family, sleep, and hope have helped her live this long.
