The Langerocks have just under two years to go before they can clinch the world record for the oldest male twins, according to the Guinness World Records.

Glen and Dale Moyer, of the US, currently hold the record, who each were alive for at least 105 years before Glen passed away.

The centenarian brothers currently share a room at a nursing room just outside of the Belgian city of Ghent. They have lived together most of their lives and both made a living as court magistrates.

They both remained unmarried throughout their lives. But the brothers revealed last year that they do have some regrets about not having children, or grandchildren, but said they’re happy to have each other as best friends, according to Reuters.

The overall world record for oldest twins ever is held by sisters Kin Narita and Gin Kanie, of Japan, who each lived to be at least 107 before Kin’s death in 2000.
