Man breaks own record and becomes dad at 96
An Indian farmer has become the world’s oldest dad aged 96 – beating the record he set himself two years ago.
Ramjeet Raghav was at his wife Shakuntala’s side as second son Ranjeet, it’s been reported.
The former wrestler had gained the world record in 2010 when Shakuntala , 52, gave birth to Vikramjeet.
Speaking at his home in the state of Haryana, near Delhi, Mr Raghav said: “What can I do? This is all God’s wish. He wanted me to have another son.”
Mr raghav admits that as proud as he is of having two healthy sons at his age, his neighbours are more jealous of his sex drive.
“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.
“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.
“When she asks I will go on all night but for the sake of my child I’ve put our needs aside for now.”
Mr Raghav said that he had remained a bachelor and practised celibacy throughout his life until he met Shakuntala about 10 years ago.
“After staying together, we decided to extend our family and aspired for two sons. With God’s grace, our wish has been fulfilled.”
