Punjab Mother Blessed With First Baby At 72

A woman from Punjab gave birth last month to a healthy boy after falling pregnant by her 79-year-old husband, following fertility treatment at a clinic in Haryana.

The couple — Mohinder Singh Gill (79) and his wife Daljinder Kaur(72) — were childless and decided to have a baby through in-vitro fertilization (IVF) three years ago. Married for 46 years, the couple were overjoyed at finally having the baby. “I feel blessed to be able to hold my own baby. I had lost hope of becoming a mother ever,” she said at her home in Amritsar.
