A Cuban woman believed to be the oldest reported person in the world recently celebrated her 125th birthday.

Juana Bautista de la Candelaria Rodriguez a.k.a. “Candulia” was born in 1885 in the village of Santa Rosa.

While virtually impossible to account for all centenarians around the globe, Rodriguez is believed to be the oldest.

The Guinness Book of World Records has not confirmed her claim of the title; however they are reviewing new cases following the death of Gertrude Baines of Georgia who died last year at 115.

If confirmed by the agency, Cadulia will break the record for oldest person to have ever lived given to 122 years, 164 day year-old Jeanne Louise Calment, of France who died in 1997.

A party was held in her honor where she was joined bysix of her grandchildren, fifteen of her great-grand children and four great-great-grandchildren.
