(Newser) – An Indian man is being called the oldest father in the world after fathering a second child at age 96—two years after having his first son, the Telegraph reports. "We had planned for another baby after my first son was born in 2010," says Ramajit Raghav. "It's a blessing, and I am enjoying fatherhood at this age." His wife, Shakuntala Devi, is 52, reports the Times of India.

"I have led a very simple life," says the proud papa. "I didn't marry for long and followed a strict diet. I've taken milk, butter, and fruits everyday since my childhood. The family isn't planning to have any more children, however: "My wife will undergo a tubectomy operation this year."
