Jimmy and Rosalynn Carter have celebrated their seventy-five years of marriage with a stunning anniversary party.

The private reception, which took place in their hometown of Plains, Georgia, was a star-studded event that saw the couple surrounded by their family and friends. Among those present were Bill and Hillary Clinton, Nancy Pelosi, Garth Brooks, Trisha Yearwood, and Ted Turner.

The Carters are the longest-married presidential couple in history. They married on July 7th, 1946, and have 4 children, twelve grandchildren, and fourteen great-grandchildren.


The event saw the couple's children take to the stage to share memories and love for their parents.

As per the Washington Post, Chip Carter took to the stage and said: "They told us we were better than no one and no one was better than us.

"They did what they thought was right, even when it was bad politics."

Chip also spoke about growing up with his parents, WXIA reports.

"The most difficult thing for me to decide was what to leave out of the toast. Do I thank them for big things like deciding to have children? Or do I thank them for inviting Willie Nelson to spend the night at the White House?

"I decided to thank them for the most important gift they gave their children. They taught us their values — Christian values. Plains, Georgia values. They told us that every single person deserves our respect, regardless of their wealth, their race, their age, their politics, their sex, their sexual orientation, or the amount of power that they have."

Jimmy also took a moment to speak about his wife, People reports.

"To my wife Rosalynn, I want to express a particular gratitude for being the right woman that I chose for my wife," he said.

Rosalynn also spoke, revealing that her life "has been an adventure."

Earlier this month, the couple spoke with Good Morning America about their long-lasting relationship.

During the interview, they revealed a key point in their marriage is that they give each other "plenty of space" while trying to "share as much as we possibly can."

"We've survived this long together because first of all, we give each other plenty of space to do our own thing," the former president said. "We're always looking to do things or find things we can do together, like fly fishing and bird watching and just going out to the pond, catch a fish."

Happy anniversary, Jimmy and Rosalynn!
