A 96-year-old farmer in India says that he has set the record for the world’s oldest new dad – for the second time. Ramjit Raghav and his 52-year-old wife Shakuntala Devi, who live in Haryana, 31 miles northwest of Delhi, welcomed baby Ranjeet earlier this month. The healthy baby boy was born on Oct. 5, according to The Times of India.
Raghav has now beaten his own record for being the world’s oldest new dad, which he set two years ago when he and Shakuntala welcomed their first son together, Vikramajeet. Raghav credits his healthy sex drive at his advanced age for the two late-in-life children, and says it was all natural.
“I didn’t take any performance enhancers … I just prayed to go to complete my family, either a boy or a girl,” the nonagenarian said in an interview posted online.
‘Bachelor and celibate’
Raghav’s age is recorded in the Haryana government’s social welfare department as 96 years old, the Times reported. Those records could not be confirmed by ABC News.
Raghav told The Times of India that he remained a bachelor and was celibate throughout most of his life until he met Shakuntala 10 years ago. Raghav told The Times that he credits his vivacity to his diet and lifestyle. He says he has been a teetotaler and strict vegetarian his entire life.
