When Is It Too Old to Be a Father?

worlds oldest father

It seems milk, almonds and butter are the key to virility for this 96 year old man who fathered his second child.  Ramjeet Raghav, a field hand and former wrestler from India, reportedly first broke the “World’s Oldest New Dad” record when he became a father to his first son in November 2010.   The 96-year-old dad claims that when his 52-year-old wife, Shakuntala Devi, gave birth to their second child on Oct. 5, he became the world’s oldest new father, according to The Times of India.

“We had planned for another baby after my first son was born in 2010. It’s a blessing to have a baby at now and I am enjoying fatherhood at this age.

“I have led a very simple life. I didn’t marry for long and followed a strict diet. I’ve taken milk, butter and fruits everyday since my childhood. We are absolutely delighted to have another member in the family. It’s a great feeling for both of us,” he said.
