A woman who claims she’s 70 years old has just welcomed her first baby into the world, making her one of the oldest first-time mums on the planet.
The couple, from a village called Mora in Gujarat, India, have been married for 45 years. Jivunben said she doesn’t have ID to prove her age, but she’s insisted to local reporters she’s 70 years old.
Dr Naresh Bhanushali, who helped the couple with their IVF, said: “When they first came to us, we told them that they couldn’t have a child at such an old age, but they insisted.

“They said that many of their family members did it as well.
“This is one of the rarest cases I have ever seen.”
Another Indian woman named Mangayamma Yaramati is believed to be the oldest woman in the world to give birth after welcoming twins through IVF in September 2019, aged 74.
The oldest first-time mum in the UK is Elizabeth Adeney, who welcomed her son into the world in May 2009.
