73-year-old woman gives birth to twins

International

(CNN) — It’s twins, but that’s not the most surprising part of this birth announcement.

The new mom is 73-years-old and dad is 80.

The proud parents live in southern India, they’re farmers, and they’ve always wanted children but it just never happened for them, until now.

Doctors agreed to IVF and it was a success, on the first try.

The twin girls were delivered via c-section Thursday, ending nine long months of bed rest for mom.

The new family may be setting records, the mother may be the oldest woman to ever give birth, but that’s not confirmed yet.
