96-year-old Ramajit Raghav improves his record of being oldest person to father a child after his wife gives birth to a baby boy in Sonipat district of India's northern Haryana state on October fifth.

Full story:

In a small town on the outskirts of the Indian Capital, Ramajit Raghav became the proud father of his second son, and possibly the oldest man in the world to father a child. At the age of 96, he says he is hoping to go down in history.

At 50 years old, Raghav's wife gave birth to their baby boy in India's northern Haryana state on October 5th.

The couple initially became famous in 2010 when, at 94, Raghav fathered his first born son.

Raghav credited his celibate life for his current vitality, saying he did not take any aphrodisiacs. He says he remained a bachelor and was celibate until he met his wife about 10 years ago.

He termed the birth of his second son a miracle and an act of God. When asked if he conceived his son through sex, he said:

[Ramajit Raghav, 96-Year-Old Father]:
"Yes. I just prayed to God to complete my family, either a boy or girl. My elder son's name is Vikramajeet and the new born's name is Ranjeet."

The newly born baby is said to be in good health with no obvious signs that his parent's age was unusual.
