Indian woman, 73, gives birth to twin girls


GUNTUR, India (CNN) — It’s twins! But that’s not the most surprising part of this birth announcement.

The new mom is 73-years-old- and the father is 80-years old.

The proud parents live in southern India where they are farmers. The couple always wanted children but for most of their lives having children never happened for them — until now.

Doctors agreed to have an in vitro fertilization (IVF) and it was a success– on the first try!

The twin girls were delivered via c-section Thursday, ending nine long months of bed rest for mom.

The new family may be setting records as the mother may be the oldest woman to ever give birth.

But that’s not confirmed yet.
