The news of Coelho and his age created a stir when it became public as Social security workers in Acre in the north of Brazil published photos of Coelho and a birth certificate dated March 10 1884.
According to the birth certificate Coelho was born in the city of Meruoca in Ceara about 2,000 miles to the east of Acre.
The Brazilian newspapers put out the news wherein it is mentioned that Coelho’s wife is aged 62, whereas a granddaughter aged 16 situated in a village called Estirao do Alcantara, a 30-minute boat ride from Sena Madureira, a municipality in the centre of the state of Acre.

Cirlene also talked of his health stating that Coelho suffered a stroke six years ago but still did not let go of having his meals thrice in a day.
Coelho has a good appetite still, and loves rice, fish and meat.
