Indian woman gives birth to her first child at age of 70

NEW DELHI — An Indian woman has given birth to her first child at the age of 70 after undergoing fertility treatment at IVF clinic, it was revealed Tuesday.

Daljinder Kaur gave birth last month to a boy following two years of IVF treatment at a fertility clinic in the northern state of Haryana with her 79-year-old husband.

It is believed she is the oldest woman on the world to give birth— taking the mantle from Rajo Devi Lohan – who was also 70 when she gave birth to daughter Naveen following treatment at the same clinic.

Although her accurate date of birth is hazy, Mrs Kaur told doctors she was around seven years younger than her better half Mohinder Singh Gill, who is 79.

Kaur said the couple, wedded for 46 years, had almost lost hope of ever having a child and had faced ridicule in a country where infertility is sometimes seen as a curse from God.

Mrs Kaur underwent three rounds of in-vitro fertilisation treatment using anonymous donor eggs. She gave birth by caesarian section on April 19.

“God heard our prayers. My life feels complete now. I am looking after the baby all by myself, I feel so full of energy. My husband is also very caring and helps me as much as he can,” Kaur said.

“When we saw the (IVF) advert, we thought we should also give it a try as I badly wanted to have a baby of my own,” she said.

Kaur put her age at about 70, a common scenario in India where many people don’t have birth certificates, while the clinic said in a statement that she was 72.

The baby was conceived using the couple’s own egg and sperm and was now “healthy and hearty” after weighing just two kilograms at birth on April 19, the National Fertility and Test Tube center said.

Kaur’s husband, Mohinder Singh Gill, who owns a farm outside Amritsar, said he was unfazed about their age, saying God would watch over their child whom they named Armaan.

BERLIN — Police have found naked and dead bodies of couple, who are believed to have suffocated after turning on the engine to keep warm while having sex in a locked garage in the city of Bottrop in West Germany’s North Rhine-Westphalia state.

Police assume that the 39-year-old man and the 44-year-old woman turned on the heating in the car as it was very cold outside. This might have led to their suffocation.

Investigators say the naked couple, whose names have not been released, appeared to have turned on the car engine to get warm, leading to their suffocation, reported The Sun.
