A 96-year-old Indian man has broken his own record of being the world's oldest father.

Ramjeet Raghav, with his 52-year-old wife, Shakuntala Devi, gave birth to their second son on Oct. 5, becoming the world's oldest father for the second time.

According to Raghav, he practiced celibacy his entire life before meeting Davi 10 years ago.

He says he can definitely have a lot more, however, for financial reasons he will not have any more children.

To prevent any more children he is even asking his wife to be "sterilized." Raghav told ABC News, “I have asked my wife to be sterilized now. I don’t want more children, we can’t afford it. I want my boys to go to a school and study. I will do my best to give them what they need in life.”

Congratulations to the couple on their new baby and for being inserted into the TJMS "He's Putting It Down, Down" files.

    Amazing! A miracle, just like in the Bible. I am proud of them. God blessed them and now many generations will be born powerful just like in the Bible.

    While I’m very happy he was able to bring life into the world, I’m saddened at the same time. How long will he be able to be in his childs life? Will he be able to attend the childs graduation, watch him go thru puberty, have that talk about girls? We all want to live forever, but it’s not a reality. But growing up without a father is… smh.. (happy and sad at the same time).
