Can a person ever be too old? Can something ever be too late?

Never, according to Ramjit Raghav! Earlier this month, 96-year-old Ramjit Raghav and his 52-year-old wife Shakuntala Devi of Haryana, India, welcomed a new baby boy, Ranjeet, into their lives.

An incredible medical miracle, the 96-year-old farmer sets the record as the world's oldest new dad -- for the second time. According to The Times of India, baby Ranjeet was born on October Oct. 5. Ranjeet's older brother, Vikramajeet, was born two years ago when Ramjit Raghav and Shakuntala Devi first decided to start a family and set their first record.

So late in his life, how does Raghav manage to do the deed not once, but twice? Ramjit Raghav claims that it's all thanks to a healthy sex drive and that his efforts were all natural. Raghav also credits practicing a strict diet and a disciplined lifestyle.

Raghav explains, "I didn't take any performance enhancers ... I just prayed to go to complete my family, either a boy or a girl."

While Raghav's sexual performance at such an advanced age borders legendary, Raghav admitted to The Times of India that he remained a celibate bachelor for the major extent of his life. It wasn't until he met his wife Shakuntala ten years ago did he decide to start a family.

Raghav said, "After staying together, we decided to extend our family and aspired for two sons. With God's grace, our wish has been fulfilled,"
