The Times of India reported that the 74-year-old mother said it was a dream come true for her as she always felt judged for not bearing any children.

"People looked at me with accusing eyes as if I had committed a sin," she said, adding people would use a curse word to describe her.

Briefly.co.za learned that doctors said both mother and babies are doing well and would be monitored.

Meanwhile, it was previously reported that a 37-year-old woman expecting only twins gave birth to five babies.

The Ugandan mum, Sofiat Mutesi, had gave birth to one boy and later another four children. The struggling mother of five revealed that she did not know how she would make ends meet.
