96-Year-Old Farmer Sets Record for World’s Oldest Dad
A farmer in India recently became the world's oldest dad at 96-years-old. But what's even more impressive is that he broke a record set by himself two years prior. How the heck does this guy keep going?
According to reports, Ramjit Raghav and his 52-year-old wife Shakuntala Devi had a 4lb. 7oz. baby boy named Ranjeet on Oct. 5th. In doing so, Raghav broke a record he set in 2010 when they had their first child, a boy named Vikramajeet.
Raghav, who claims he was celibate for most of his life until he met his wife 10 years ago, credits a vegetarian diet and the power of prayer for his vitality. "I didn't take any performance enhancers," he said. "I just prayed to complete my family, either a boy or a girl."
Still, the new dad admits that it will be difficult raising two children. "I feel lucky to have two healthy sons. It will be tough, but I’m a happy man."
