The World's Oldest Father

BabiesMr. Ramjeet Raghav recently welcomed his second child into the world at the age of 96 on October 5th. The Times of India reported that Mr. Raghav was a bachelor for most of his life and practiced celibacy until he met his wife Davi about a decade ago. The couple decided that they wanted to try to have children and made the decision to start their family. The couple now has two sons. Mr. Raghav stated that the keys to his success was his faith in God. While the father of two believes that he is still healthly enough to have children, he has "asked [his] wife be to sterilised [sic] now." His primary reason is financial, as he does not believe that he has the finances to have more chidren and still give his sons the life that he wants for them. The man's age has not been confirmed by other news sources. His wife reportedly gave birth to a health baby boy
