The couple first met in Chicago in the 1940s but have lived in the same house in Woodland Hills, California for the past 50 years. They have two kids, one grandkid and recently welcomed a great-grandkid to the family.

"It started in the row boat," Toots said of their relationship.

"At this point in my life, the most important thing I can do is try to make her healthy and happy, that's what I got to do," Ed said. 

As for Toots? "We look out for each other, and he's the most important thing in my life, and I'm the most important in his life," she said. 

The not-so-secret ingredient that has kept the spark alive for eight decades is simple: a shared sense of humor. 

"We laugh a lot," Toots said.
