Despite all the attention, the couple say that they are overjoyed with their latest arrival. And the boy’s dad, Biswajit, told India Today that he believes the youngster takes after him. “Our first child, Aparna, has taken after her mother. But my boy looks like me, and I am happy,” he said.
When asked about the child’s unusual appearance, Mr. Patro proudly told the Daily Mail, “We can only thank God. There is no need to be unhappy about the appearance of my son.” And he continued, “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?”
Local medics were initially baffled by the boy’s condition. They had no idea what had caused the boy’s features to appear as they did. One doctor told the Daily Mail, “The baby does not look like a newborn at all. There are prominent signs of aging such [as] excessive wrinkles and rough skin texture.”
