A Bridgeport woman celebrated her milestone 100th birthday Thursday.
Daphne Reid’s family spared no effort as they got ready for the very special celebration.
From her backyard tent in Bridgeport, Reid's family was sharing congratulatory messages for a birthday party a century in the making.
Reid was dressed up in her favorite color for her 100th birthday.
Her family says they take special pride in knowing that Reid doesn’t need anybody else to do the talking for her at this milestone moment.
Born in Saint Thomas, Jamaica, on this day in 1921, the great-grandmother says she came to the U.S. in search of a better life in 1979.
She says the longer she lives, the happier she is.
