London: Britain`s oldest father of twins, who is now 72, is overjoyed after his 26-year-old wife again discovered she is pregnant.
Lisa said: "I can`t believe how quickly it has happened. We will have three babies under the age of three when this next one is born." The couple stay in Walsall, West Midlands and locals often mistake Richard for the children`s grandfather. "Being a dad at 72 is definitely more tiring than in my twenties, but it gives me such a lot of pleasure," Richard was qouted as saying. The world`s oldest recorded father of twins is US national Tom Lambert who was 78 when his children were born in March 1948.
Lisa said: "It was amazing when the twins were born, and Richard is a complete natural with them. He changes their nappies like an expert - and he will be just a good a dad this time around. "We were amazed when I fell pregnant again. We always wanted another baby. Richard seems 20 years younger now. The twins and this baby are proof of our love - a love that has defied the age gap and the gossips too!" IANS
