An Indian woman from Guntur, Andhra Pradesh, became, at 74, the oldest woman in the world to give birth to twins, according to India Times.
Mangayamma became pregnant following in vitro fertilization and gave birth to two girls on Thursday at the Ahalya maternity ward in Guntur.
The children were born by cesarean section and feel good, as did their mother, according to the team of specialists coordinated by doctor Sanakkayala Umashankar.
Originally from Nelapartipadu, Mangayamma has been married for 57 years to Yerramatti Raja Rao, and these are their first children.
Indian Omkari Panwar was formerly known as the oldest woman in the world to give birth to twins. In 2008, at the age of 70, she gave birth to a boy and a girl.
However, the woman was unable to get the Guinness Book of Records because she did not have official documents to confirm her age.
According to the Guinness Book of Records, the oldest woman in the world who gave birth to twins is Maria del Carmen Bousada Lara, from Spain, who, on December 29, 2006, gave birth to boys, aged 66 years and 358 days.
