66-Year-Old Mother Gives Birth To Triplets

A 66-year-old woman has become a mother for the first time to triplets at the age of 66. Bhateri Devi is overjoyed to become a mother after 44 years of marriage, and has welcomed two boys and a girl into the world.

Bhateri's husband Deva Singh, 64, was quoted as saying 'Bhateri has fulfilled my dream of having a child and gave my family an heir.' Deva had married twice, and Bhateri was his first wife, but this is the first time he has become a father.

Bhateri became pregnant after undergoing IVF treatment at the National Fertility Centre in Hisar. She was successful on only the third try.The news follows yesterday's story of the world's oldest mother, Rajo Debi Lohan, who recently revealed she is dying after undergoing fertility treatment at the age of 70.

The triplets were born dangerously underweight at 1.1kg, 1kg and 0.7kg, and they're currently in intensive care.
