Doctor, 83, Who Welcomed A Baby Boy With His 35-year-old Wife Worries He Will Never Get To See Him Grow.
A doctor who welcomed a baby boy at 83 years old says he lives each day knowing he won’t get to watch his son grow up.
Alberto Cormillot, a nutrition expert, said that his 35-year-old wife Estefania Pasquini got pregnant following fertility treatment.
Despite his advanced age, Dr. Cormillot claims to be actively involved in Emilio’s upbringing.
He continued by saying that because he knows he won’t be around to watch the child grow, he is doing what he can right now to give the child as many memories as he can.
He said: “I’m aware that life is not infinite. That little guy’s here and I’m going to accompany him until a certain moment.
“Until that happens I plan to enjoy every day to the fullest and make plans that are more short-term, which means I enjoy every day as fully as I can.”
Dr. Cormillot routinely leaves audio messages for his kid to find in the future because he is continuously thinking about the future.
He said: “That means that although he still really is a baby, he has a phone number with WhatsApp in which I record audio and send him videos.
“I don’t over-dramatize things, I just record the reality of life.”
He already has two adult sons, Renee and Adrian, and three granddaughters.
His first wife Monika Arborgast died in 2017.
Dr. Cormillot – who lives in Argentina – added that he was constantly thinking about how he can best prepare his son for the future while he is still around.
More than 50 books, largely on health education, have been produced by Dr. Cormillot, who has also published over a hundred scientific papers that have been presented at conferences and journals around the world.
