In Amritsar, Haryan, after 46 years of marriage, the couple celebrates the birth of their first child. Daljinder Kaur, 72, and her husband, 79, underwent an I.V.F process at an assisted reproduction clinic.
In a country where ɪɴꜰᴇʀᴛɪʟɪᴛʏ is seen as a curse, the couple have suffered much ᴄʀɪᴛɪᴄɪsᴍ and ridicule in recent years for their inability to ᴄᴏɴᴄᴇɪᴠᴇ. Kaur and her husband do not care about their advanced age and do not think they are too old to raise a baby.
Armaan was born on April 19, weighing two kilograms. He is healthy and strong. He was ᴄᴏɴᴄᴇɪᴠᴇᴅ through a ᴛʀᴇᴀᴛᴍᴇɴᴛ performed by the National Fᴇʀᴛɪʟɪᴛʏ and test Tᴜʙᴇ clinic, which combined the couple’s ᴇɢɢs and sᴘᴇʀᴍ.
When asked about their fate and that of their new child, the couple take comfort in their religious beliefs. “People wonder what will happen to the child when we ᴅɪᴇ. I have full faith in God. God is omnipotent and omnipresent, and he will take care of everything,” Kaur’s husband said.
Daljinder Kaur spoke in an interview with the local press, that she had not given up hope of one day being a mother. “God heard our prayers. My life is now complete. I’ll take care of this baby by myselft. I feel full of energy. My husband is also very careful and he helps me as much as he can”, added Kaur, infecting everyone with her joy and motherly love.
