A 6-month-old baby was entered into the Guinness World Records. The baby was conceived from the world’s oldest sperm. Alex, his dad had battled Hodgkin’s lymphoma disease and was left infertile. The couple opted for artificial insemination with frozen sperm. That sperm was from almost 23 years ago, having been deposited and stored ever since. The pregnant and birth was a success, and another a healthy baby boy has joined us in this amazing world!
