Meizhen lives in China's Guangxi province and has one son who she claims she gave birth to at the age of 61. Her alleged date of birth is believed to be August 25th, 1885 - making her a full five years older than the previously recognized record holder. Meizhen celebrated her 127th birthday with rice, pork, duck, chicken and cake.
