A 70-year-old woman in the Indian state of Gujarat has given birth to a healthy baby boy. This is her first child and her husband is 75 years old.
The woman, Jewenben Rabari, had been married for 45 years.
Rabari and her husband Maldhari live in the village of Mora in Gujarat and this is the birth of a baby, Indian media reports.
The couple's doctor, Thuresh Banushal, says this is a very rare birth.
“I was surprised when this couple came to my clinic about a year and a half ago. I told them to give up the idea of having children. But they did not change their decision. We did this process in a very complex way. I am happy that it has succeeded, surprising everyone, ”added Dr. Thuresh Banushal.
The couple named the baby "Lalo". According to the Indian media, she had tried several times before but did not get pregnant.
Maria del Carmen Bousada Lara of Spain holds the Guinness World Record for the oldest woman to have children. She gave birth to twins when she was 66 years and 358 days old. However, according to local media reports, it is questionable whether Jivunben Rabari will apply for the Guinness World Record. That is because she does not have the necessary documents to officially confirm her date of birth.
