A 96-year-old man who claims to be the world's oldest dad has fathered a second child, it was claimed today.
Ramajit Raghav, who became a father for the first time in 2010 aged 94, has had a second son to wife Shankuntala Devi.
Their second child, a boy named Ranjit, was born on October 5 and joined older brother Vikramjit, born two years ago.
Ramajit put his remarkably virility down to his teetotal lifestyle and a diet rich in fruit and dairy.
The couple do not plan on having any more children and Shankuntala plans to be sterilised.
Ramajit said: "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."
The 96-year-old added: "My wife will undergo a tubectomy operation this year. We aren't planning more children, two are more than enough and I have limited financial resources, which can only sustain their needs.
"I want to send them to school and wish to see them lead a respectable life."
