UK Father Welcomes 7th Child at 78!
Raymond Calvert, now 79, described the birth of his son Jamie Rai as a "gift from God".
He then continued saying,
The new dad has six other children who are all older than his partner and range in age from 38 to 51.
He raised them alone after his wife died 28 years ago and now has nine grandchildren.
In an unusual twist, he told the paper he first met his 25-year-old partner Charlotte following a three-year relationship with her mother. She was 16 at the time and joined him on caravan holidays with his children.
Baby Jamie's arrival smashes the record set by previous oldest dad Dennis Ealam, who was 76 when his wife Cora gave birth to daughter Jessie in Lincoln last December.
