Magician sets record for UK’s oldest father

Magician sets record for UKs oldest fatherUK magician Barry Stephenson is now a proud record holder, in addition to being a proud father. We figure he’s much prouder of the latter.

Stephenson, 77, is the father of a 15-month-old child with his wife, Yaqueline, 36. The child was born when Stepenson was 76 and 4 months, beating the previous record holder by about two months.

The Mirror is one of many British media sites to carry the story, complete with its tacky ledes about magic wands and rabbits out of hats.
