A 96 year old Indian man has become the worlds oldest dad.
Ramjeet Raghav, a farmer from Haryana near Delhi, beat his own record he set himself two years ago, when his 52 year old wife gave birth to his second son earlier this month, according to press reports.
Ramjeet says “What can I do? This is all God’s wish. He wanted me to have another son.”
“I’m healthy and I enjoy sex with my wife. I think it’s very important for a husband and wife to have sex regularly” he says.
“I do it three or four times a night. My neighbours are jealous and they keep asking me for my secret but all I tell them is that it is God’s will,” he said.
“When she asks I will go on all night but for the sake of my child I’ve put our needs aside for now.”
“After staying together, we decided to extend our family and aspired for two sons. With God’s grace, our wish has been fulfilled.”
Bizarrely Raghav, a strict teetotaler and vegetarian, had practised celibacy throughout his life until he met his wife Shakuntala just over 10 years ago.
He says of his daily routine “I wake up at five in the morning and go to bed before 8pm. During the day, I work in the fields and also take 1-2 hour afternoon nap.”
He says his healthy diet includes around two litres of cow’s milk, fresh and green vegetables and chapattis.
Raghav’s age is recorded in the Haryana government’s social welfare department as 96.
