Ahmed Muhamed Dore and his new wife Safia Abdulleh

Ahmed Muhamed Dore said he would like to have more children with his new wife, Safia Abdulleh, who is 17 years old.

The bride’s family said she was “happy with her new husband”.

Mr. Dore said he and his bride – who is young enough to be his great-great-grand-daughter – were from the same village in Somalia and that he had waited for her to grow up to propose.

“I didn’t force her, but used my experience to convince her of my love; and then we agreed to marry,” the groom said.

Altogether, Mr. Dore has 114 children and grandchildren. His oldest son is 80 years old and three of his wives have died.

He says he hopes his new bride will give him more children.
