Omkari Panwar, 70 (or 72, depending on the report), became the oldest woman to give birth last week when she delivered twins (a boy and a girl) by C-section in India. Panwar, who already had two children and five grandchildren, spent her life savings on in vitro fertility treatments and eight months of her pregnancy on bed rest so that she and her 75 year-old husband, Charam Singh, could have a son. Singh told the media after the twins’ birth:
“The desire for a male child has always been there, but God did not bless us with a male child,” he said of the son who is a product of in vitro fertilization. “Now, we are very grateful to God, who has answered our prayers.”
“We are over-the-moon about the birth of our son. And, uh, oh yes! What’sherface, our daughter. And to those critics who think this was a totally effed idea, I would like to say, I consider myself a lucky woman.
I got pregnant, after all, without having to go near my husband’s old, shriveled weiner, which looks like a banana that became so brown and spotty that even the beggars and lepers refused to eat it and then was buried in the ground for ten thousand years and shat on repeatedly by baby elephants only to be unearthed by archaeologists looking for Roman coins and beads, much to their disappointment.
And that, my friends, is a blessing.”
