An elderly couple in Uttar Pradesh, India, has a six-year-old son. In 2008, aged 70, the woman became the oldest in the world to give birth to twins – a boy and girl.

The girl, however, passed away four years later, reported Metro.

Today, the 76-year-old old woman along with her octogenarian husband is busy bringing up their youngest child. The couple has two older daughters and five grandchildren.


She had to face a lot of criticism from community for giving birth at such advanced age. But, she says, there are some women who help her now, without judging her.

She admits she cannot run around and keep pace with the energetic lad. She wishes the boy grows up fast so they can see him get married. But, she quickly adds, that she is not worried because after her death her daughter will take care of him.
