48-year-old Baron Brooks of Salt Lake City, Utah, was shocked to learn that someone bought a full page ad in a newspaper for $900 to find him a wife.

The man soon figured out who was behind the advertisement, his father, 78-year-old Arthur Brooks, who lives in Beverly Hills, California.

The advertisement that had a photo of the businessman, ran in Idaho, and Brooks believes that his father chose that area because of their conservative views.

The ad was written as if Brooks wrote it himself. It said that he is looking for a woman “between 34 and 38 years old, but that can be flexible.

“Attractive, being height and weight proportional. Ideally, you have no children from previous marriages, but that is also flexible.”

However, the father wants his son to give him grandchildren, so he wrote: “willing and able to have children as soon as possible” and act as “a stay-at-home mom.”

The ad also specifies the political views of a potential wife: “You must be politically conservative. This is very important to me. If you voted for Obama or plan to vote for Hillary you are not for me,” Brooks’ father wrote.

A photo of the ad was uploaded to the Internet, where it went viral.
