A couple are celebrating the arrival of their first child – despite both being in their seventies. Pensioners Daljinder Kaur, 72, from Amritsar, and her 79-year-old husband Mohinder Singh Gill, gave birth to a healthy baby boy on April 19.

The couple, from India, have been married for 47 years – but only decided to seek fertility treatment following the end of a family feud.
Gill, a farmer, said: “I felt upset as I was unable to produce a child.
“After sometime we thought of having a baby, once again.”
The couple have been travelling from their home in Amritsar, Punjab, to the National Fertility and Test Tube Baby Centre in Hisar, Haryana, to receive IVF treatment since 2013.

Daljinder Kaur is happy to have a baby boy, who they’ve named Arman Singh.
The mother said: “It was very important for us. I can live happily now. My life is complete.”
Workers at the fertility clinic said they were initially sceptical about offering her treatment until medical reports proved she was a suitable candidate.
Anurag Bishnoi, who runs the fertility clinic, said: “I first tried to avoid the case because she was very weak, but then her medical reports were normal and she was fit to conceive.”
This is the second case at the centre where a woman in her seventies has delivered successfully following IVF.
In 2006, 70-year-old Rajo Devi gave birth to a baby girl from the same centre, making her the world’s oldest mother at the time.
