UAE's 'Super Daad' with 90 kids to marry again

Daad Mohammed Al Balushi all set to marry a Pakistani even as two of his wives are expecting children next month

Daad Mohammed Al Balushi, UAE's super dad who has 90 children from 17 wives is all set to marry yet again in two weeks.

The 63-year-old big daddy says "100 children are within reach", reported 'Khaleej Times'. Two of his wives are expecting kids in June. “Next month, by the grace of God, I will be the father of 92 children,” he said. He already has 50 grandchildren.

“Now I have three wives. I will have my fourth wife after next week when I get married to Rukhsana Arif from Pakistan. There will be a big feast. His Highness Shaikh Humaid will bear all the expenses,” the paper qouted him as saying.

Al Balushi calls himself a 'global father' as his wives come from Philippines and Morocco even. "Unfortunately, it is not allowed to have more than four wives at a time. If allowed, I can manage 20 wives at a time. But I never marry a divorcee or widow."

Each wife lives separately with her children in luxury. Each home has a car and housemaids. "Now, I have 17 houses with 17 families, all under my care," says the super dad. He currently has 60 sons and 30 daughters.

The entire family meets in Manamah every week in Al Balushi’s old home. He visits Manamah on Thursday nights to attend the weekly court of the Ajman Ruler.

“Life and death is in God’s hand. If I live, I am certain I will achieve the target. I have given word to the Late President His Highness Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan and His Highness Sheikh Humaid bin Rashid Al Nuaimi, Supreme Council Member and Ruler of Ajman, that I will have at least 100 children before I die,” said Al Balushi.

He said he made the promise in 2002 while late Sheikh Zayed honoured him and other UAE nationals with the most number of children. He came on top then and remains there till this day.

Al Balushi lost his leg in a road accident in 1995. He said he would go to Jaipur, India, to have an artificial leg next month and possibly look for a new bride there.

His father Murad Abdul Rahman lived until 110 years and had four wives with 27 children.
