Couple from India become first time parents after welcoming their child in their seventies, making the mother the oldest to give birth

After being married for 5 decades with no child, a couple from India welcomes their baby boy.


Most couples dream of having a baby. However, the sad thing is that sometimes, this wish doesn’t turn into a reality because of different reasons. When that is the case, some opt for adoption, others accept that they will never be parents, and some, like a woman named Daljinder and her husband, never stop trying.

This couple from India was dubbed the oldest couple to ever welcome a first child. Believe it or not, when Daljinder gave birth to son Arman back in 2016, she was 72 years old.

The new parents said that the arrival of Arman was the best thing that has ever happened to them. And although they don’t know what future will hold for them and their son, they never regretted the decision to have a baby, even at that age.

Daljinder and husband Mohinder, who was 79 when he became a father, have been married for over 50 years.

It was back in 2014 when they turned to the medicine in order to be able to become a mom and a dad. The doctors were hesitant whether the couple could conceive, but after numerous tests, it was determined that Daljinder was completely healthy and that she could carry a baby, so they underwent an IVF treatment. The procedure cost 1 million rupees, or around $10,000.

“We cannot thank God and our doctor enough for blessing us with a baby boy,” the happy mother said. She even breastfed her son and said how many media were interested to pick up their story so they felt like their bundle of joy was sort of a celebrity.

And while the parents are overjoyed and thank God for their new life roles, people say they are selfish. “This is just sad because most likely the child will be young when his parents pass away,” one person wrote. “They seem nice, but this is incredibly selfish on their part. They should have ADOPTED 47 yrs ago,” another person added. However, there are also those who say that Daljinder and Mohinder’s story gives hopes to other couples who struggle to become parents themselves.
