The best of Prog rock

Wednesday, September 21, 2011


Luiz Costa de Oliveira, a retired farm worker, had 17 children with his first wife before she died. He then remarried to Maria Francisca da Silva, 64, with whom he had other 17 children. But during the course of his second marriage he also had a long affair with his wife’s sister Ozelita Francisca da Silva, 58, who gave birth to 15 of his children.

He even had a fling with his mother-in-law Francisca Maria da Silva, 89, which also resulted in a child. "The best thing God made in the world was women," said Mr Oliveira, who lives in Campo Grande in the northern state of Rio Grande do Norte. “I could even have other children and not know it because I always liked to go out with women.”

“I don’t know all the names, but I know that I have many children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren scattered around,” he added.

Mr Oliveira’s second wife and sister-in-law said that his secret was that he was always kind to women. Some of his children died during their poverty-stricken childhood. But he can now boast more than 100 grandchildren and 30 great-grandchildren. Many still live in three houses near to Luiz's.

The OAP, who hasn't smoked or touched alcohol for 40 years, admitted he doesn't know the name of all his clan. He still remembers working hard on the land by day and racking up conquests by night. ''I hardly make love anymore these days, even though I'm in good health. But I still remember how wonderful it is to be in bed with a woman.'

Second wife Maria Francisca added: 'Luiz's only hobby was making love’.
