The Oldest Father in the World | World Oldest Father Ever



The world's oldest father has done it again, fathering a child for at least the 21st time, at the age of 90. Isn't it Unbelievable News?

Indian farmer Nanu Ram Jogi, who is married to his fourth wife, boasts he does not want to stop, and plans to continue producing children until he is 100. But his fourth wife Saburi says she has had enough after delivering 13 children.

Nanu Ram Jogi is revered by the menfolk of Paanchimli village in the western desert state of Rajasthan where the nonagenarian lives with 109 members of his extended family, including 20 grandchildren.

Mr. Jogi admits he is not certain how many children his series of four wives have borne him - but counts at least 12 sons and nine daughters and 20 grandchildren.

Two-week-old daughter Girija Rajkumari is the latest addition to the proud father's family. "Women love me," Jogi said. "I want to have more children. I can survive another few decades and want to have children till I am 100 - then maybe I will stop."

The world's oldest father Mr. Jogi attributes his vitality to "the miracle of camel milk" and a carnivorous diet of lamb, rabbit and chicken.

Mr Jogi fathered his eldest daughter, Sita Devi, in 1943. His latest wife, Saburi, who has given him seven children, was first married to his eldest son Shiv Lal, who died 10 years ago.




Speaking from the family home in a remote village in Rajasthan, she said:"At first I didn't want to stay here after my husband died. But Nanu promised to look after me and now we have seven children."

Jogi's children and grandchildren live in six houses attached to his two-storey family home. He said: "I have a perfect life - with so many children and grandchildren all around me, it keeps me young."
