The birth of the boy stunned doctors at a hospital in the district of Magura, Bangladesh on Sunday, September 25, who said the baby has a rare condition called progeria, which causes wrinkles on the face, a very sunken body and hollow eyes reminiscent of elderly features.
Biswajit Patro, father of the baby, who is a farmer, is ecstatic and cannot hold back his happiness. "We can only thank God. There is no need to be unhappy about the appearance of my son. We will accept him the way he is. We are so happy to have a baby boy in the house.
We are already blessed to have a daughter. Now we are a family of four. What else can we ask for?" the father said. Patro and his wife, Parul Patro, have been busy attending to guests curious to get a glimpse of their newborn. The family hopes he can grow up to become a healthy boy.
