A 72-year-old woman is overjoyed after giving birth to her first child 46 years after marrying her husband, according to doctors in India.

72-year-old Daljinder Kaur and her husband, 79-year-old Mohinder Singh Gill, welcomed their newborn baby boy, Arman Singh.

The elderly couple managed to have a child of their own thanks to IVF.

Kaur and Gill of Punjab, revealed that they only recently started seeking treatment to have a child because a family feud prevented them from going to a doctor all their lives.

Dr. Anurag Bishnoi of the National Fertility and Test Tube Baby Centre in Hisar, said that the couple came to him three years ago.

After two failed IVF cycles, Kaur finally conceived and gave birth to a healthy baby boy.

Bishnoi revealed that at first, he thought that Kaur was too old and frail to conceive, but after medical tests, he decided that it is worth to try.

Doctors said that the reason why Kaur wasn’t able to conceive earlier in life was due to tubal blocks. The couple never went to a doctor for help until three years ago.

The husband attributes this to the lack of awareness and a family feud.
