Erramatti Mangayamma, a 74-year-old woman in India, now holds the record as the "world's oldest mother" after she gave birth to twins via IVF, using donor eggs. Erramatti and her husband, Rajarao, 80, welcomed twin daughters this week after they went through one round of IVF in January. The healthy babies were born via C-section, with no complications and both weighing approximately 2 kilograms (4.4 pounds).
The delivery surpasses that of 70-year-old Daljinder Kaur, who previously held the record for oldest recorded age at birth.
