Congressman Charles Rangel got a surprise party in Washington for his 85th birthday.

The representative thought he was headed to an interview with NY1 but that was only half true.

Instead, his staff surprised him with cake, organic fruit, sparkling cider and a card from Alma, his wife of 50 years.

Rangel recently publicized his new healthy diet. He said despite all the sweet treats, he’d still have a smoothie.

"Instead of throwing in milk today, I'll throw in a dash of apple cider with the pineapple, strawberry and banana,” said Rangel. “I can't wait for that."

Rangel is currently the second longest serving representative in office.
