79 Year Old Man And His 72 Year Old Wife Welcomes Their First Child (Photo)

An Indian couple in their 70s welcomed their first baby into the world on April 19 with the help of a fertility treatment.

“It was very important for us,” 72-year-old Daljinder Kaur told Barcroft Media following her
son’s birth. “I can live happily now. My life is complete.”

Kaur and her 79-year-old husband Mohinder Singh Gill who have been married for 47 years have been trying to conceive for two years.

They regularly traveled six hours from their home in Amritsar, Punjab to the National Fertility and Test Tube Baby Centre where Kaur endured multiple rounds of In Vitro Fertilization, a procedure that manually combines an egg and sperm to create an embryo that is inserted back in the uterus.

“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,” said Anurag Bishnoi, who runs the fertility clinic.

And Kaur and Gill aren’t just beating the odds when it comes to having a child at their age, they also have both surpassed the average life expectancy in their Indian state of Punjab.

The average man in Punjab only lives to about 70 years old, while women usually live until 72, according to data from the Indian government.
