‘Former First Lady Rosalynn Carter has entered hospice care at home. She and President Carter are spending time with each other and their family. 

‘The Carter family continues to ask for privacy and remains grateful for the outpouring of love and support,’ the statement read. 

They are the longest married couple in U.S. presidential history, meeting when Jimmy was just three years old and Rosalynn was a newborn. 

They celebrated their 77nd wedding anniversary on July 7, 2023. 

The couple first dated in 1945. A then 20-year-old Jimmy was attending the United States Naval Academy at Annapolis, Maryland, and stole a kiss from Rosalynn on their first date. 

He later told his mother he wanted to marry her.

The pair have four children, and 21 grandchildren and great-grandchildren together.
