What is in a row? The 69-year-old Dutchman is aiming for an age change of 49

UTRECHT, The Netherlands – Self-assured positivity guru Emile Ratelband believes that age is only a number. And the Dutchman wants his number changed.

The 69-year-old TV personality has asked a Dutch court to approve his request for a new birthday, which would make him officially 49 years old.

Ratelband says his appeal is in line with other forms of personal transformation that are gaining acceptance and recognition by the government in the Netherlands and around the world.

"With this free choice, the choice of the name and the freedom of sex I would like to have my own age. I want to control myself, "he said on Thursday.
