A Newport Beach man got a huge present Monday for a very special birthday. Friends and family members gathered to wish David Naidus a happy 100th birthday.

The managers of Park Newport, the apartment complex where he lives, stole the show when they presented him with a check for free rent for a year. Naidus shared his secret for longevity.

"I worked out in the gym a couple of times a week for 35 years," said Nadius. "And watch what I eat, that's about it."

Naidus' big birthday present has an estimated value of close to $25,000.
