And in 2021, they welcomed their first child. As for his child's diet, the doctor said that he and his wife agreed that their child would not eat any salt or sugar for the first 2 years.
With the news of his paternity at that age, unfortunately, it was not long before biased comments came from third parties, such as when some journalists said ironically that "the child is a little orphan" and wondered how long he could be present in his son's life. of.
The couple, however, remained strong in the face of criticism, as they were both convinced of their decision and no one was going to take away their joy.
"Everything these people said last week we as a couple had discussed from the beginning. I did not ask myself the question (about age), I do it now, since people started mentioning it "said the doctor.
For her part, the mother knows that one day the father of the child will no longer be close but it is something she is ready to face when the time comes:
"They do not say anything that I do not know or that we have not discussed with Alberto. "Even my friends have told me that at some point he will leave life because that is the cycle of life but then they will be by my side to support me.", he confessed.
Finally, the couple's dream came true on September 17, 2021, when the long-awaited baby, Emilio, was born in perfect condition. 2 days later, they went home together to start their new adventure.

But the time that has passed since the birth of his last child and young man, as he confessed, makes him feel like a father for the first time, as he now discovers modern things about babies:
"I do not remember much from the experience anymore. Yesterday we went to look for strollers, so we made one wheelchair lesson. These did not even exist then, they were much more primitive […]. In the past there were cloth diapers that were washed and today they are completely different ", he said.
His children have accepted their father's decision for his new life and their new brother despite the years that separate them: "My son said he would have someone to play with and having a brother is something he would like. And Renee, as a woman, is ambivalent. On the one hand she is happy and on the other it is difficult for her ", he said.
Having a child at 83 is landmark. Alberto is a true reflection of the fact that older people can live in a very positive way, and criticizes society's negative attitude towards them:
"People are biased towards an older adult, there is a cliché: an older one can not have children or have fun […]. A single-parent family may have a child, but not an elderly one. This thought is not very wise.
He is an elderly citizen overload, is disposable, not even recyclable and many "buy" this view. "I do not buy it and I never bought it," he said.
Although life has struck him, the way he deals with age is remarkable. Remains active with tap dancing and aerial dance: "I have had cancer twice, a disease related to the elderly, and x-rays show that my knees have been shot, as have my shoulders and spine.
Overall, I've collected more than 30 injuries. There seems to be a contradiction between my medical history and my life because you see me and realize that I do the same things I always did. ", he said.
Despite the challenges he faces with his age, he said he wants to live until 105 to see his little son graduate. "I will not be able to become like a young father of 30, that's for sure, but I will do what I can," he said of his story.
He added that he left a very special gift for when Emilio grows up. "I got him a phone call and I send him WhatsApp messages and I record stories, I send him photos and I tell him what I'm doing."
