One of the secrets to her longevity as she would often say is that she eats three eggs every day. One cooked and the other two raw. Included in her diet are glasses of honey and 500gm of Gianduiotti, which she consumes within a week.

Aside from being the oldest person in the world, she is also the oldest Italian ever recorded, making her a holder of two world records. Having to live for so long, Emma Morano has lived to see three kings, a dozen or so of presidents and eleven popes.

Despite her positive outlook in life, Emma had a tragic past. She once fell in love with a young man who was drafted to the military during the First World War. According to a report, the couple never had the chance to see each other again.

One story says that the young man was killed during the war, while another story says that the young man did return but only to find out that she has moved somewhere else.

On the other hand, Emma did marry someone else but only to be separated again. This time it was because of a failed marriage. The couple did have a single child, but the child died within only six months after birth. After a year, the couple parted ways; yet they never did get a divorce. Emma, henceforth, did not marry again.
