A viral tweet also shared a picture of the two sharing a New Year's Eve kiss.

The former president turned 97 back in October while the former first lady is looking ahead to her 95th birthday in 2022.

The last year was a big one for Carter, who in 2020 scaled back much of his public life due to the pandemic - he returned to church after getting vaccinated in February, met with President Joe Biden and First Lady Jill Biden at his home in April, and he and Rosalynn celebrated their 75th anniversary with a party at their home in July. 

Jimmy was also recently in the news when an old story of how he helped avert crisis during a nuclear meltdown at a plant in Ottawa, Canada in 1952 went viral on social media.
