The pensioners identified as Daljinder Kaur, 72, from Amritsar, and her 79-year-old husband, Mohinder Singh Gill, have reportedly been blessed with a healthy baby boy on April 19, 2016.

The couple reportedly from India have been married for 47 years without an issue before seeking fertility treatment following a family fued.

Gill, who is a farmer, revealed saying:

"I felt upset as I was unable to produce a child. After sometime we thought of having a baby, once again."

The reports reveal that the couple have been travelling from their home in Amritsar, Punjab, to the National Fertility and Test Tube Baby Centre in Hisar, Haryana, to receive IVF treatment since 2013 when they had finally sought help.

Daljinder Kaur who is reportedly beside herself with excitement, is happy to have a baby boy, who has been named Arman Singh, as she says:

"It was very important for us. I can live happily now. My life is complete."

Workers at the fertility clinic are reported to have initially been sceptical about offering Dajinder Kaur, treatment until medical reports had proved that she was a suitable candidate.

Anurag Bishnoi, who is in charge of the fertility clinic, said:

"I first tried to avoid the case because she was very weak, but then her medical reports were normal and she was fit to conceive."

The reports reveal that this is the second case at the centre where a woman in her seventies has delivered successfully following IVF treatments.

In 2006, 70-year-old Rajo Devi, had reportedly given birth to a baby girl from the same centre, which had made her the world's oldest mother at the time but Daljinder Kaur has now taken over this position.
