Wook Kundor's biological clock has been ticking for a very long time.

Now, the 108-year-old Malaysian woman is looking to fulfill her dreams of becoming a mother. Her 23rd (yes, 23rd) husband, 38-year-old Mohd Noor Che Musa, says he realized his wife wanted a child when she pointed out a story selling mittens and baby products, the Malaysian Star reports.

Mohd Noor says the couple would prefer to adopt a toddler.

"I can't expect my wife to be running around at her age when I have to work to fend for my family," he says.

However, Mohd Noor, who just spent 18 months in a drug rehabilitation center, says they're not picky.

"We are willing to accept babies who are born out of wedlock," he says. Also, they'll even take your spare babies. "Rather than abandon a newborn, give him to us and we promise to (take) care of the child."

So, to recap, a 108-year-old woman and her former drug addict husband want to adopt, and they'll even take an out-of-wedlock child. They sound like ideal candidates, no? Good luck to them.
