birth to twins at 70

She was utterly determined to have a son.

The fact that to do so would make 70-year-old Omkari Panwar the world's oldest mother didn't even cross her mind.

Her resolve was matched by her husband Charan Singh Panwar, 77.

To pay for the IVF treatment vital to producing a male heir to the family's smallholdings, the retired farmer sold his buffalos, mortgaged his land, spent his life savings and took out a credit card loan.

And it all paid off when Mrs Panwar gave birth to twins - a boy and girl - by emergency Caesarean section in hospital in Muzaffarnagar, seven hours drive north of the Indian capital New Delhi.

The twins, born a month premature and weighing 2lb each, are healthy, according to doctors.

The Panwars already have two adult daughters, and five grandchildren, but the latest arrivals are what they have been waiting for - not least because a son will benefit from a dowry when he marries and will be able to work their land.

Mrs Panwar said: 'For eight months the pregnancy was hectic and painful. But I have given birth before, so I knew what to expect. Sometimes, you have to face the pain if you want something good.'

Her husband added: 'At last we have a son and heir. We prayed to God, went to saints and visited religious places to pray for an heir.

'The treatment cost me a fortune but the birth of a son makes it all worthwhile. I can die a happy man and a proud father.'

Thanks Elaine, don't you feel that it's very sad that they felt they needed a son and went through all of that at their age?

I know its their culture but how sad is that ?

"I can die a happy man and a proud father.'"

Its sad it appears he wasn't proud of his grown up daughters !
(otherwise he would have been able to die a proud father, and grandfather anyhow)

Its sad that the child was created to work on his land..!

If she gave birth to two female babies, they would have been seen as a burden rather than a joy :o((

Its sad, that in this day and age, such a procedure be carried out at such a very late age for the purpose of status, rather than for the love of a wanted child.

Money talks though

:o((
