Stuckey tells FOX 35 News that the couple celebrated the New Year a bit early that evening. 

"It was taken at 8:01 pm New Year's Eve...We are old and didn’t want to wait till midnight so we dropped the peanut at 8:00."

The Carters have been married since 1947, making them the longest married presidential couple.
