This is so strange. http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/art...eased-male-heir-declares-daughter-burden.html World's oldest mother, 70, is pleased at male heir but declares daughter 'a burden' By Daily Mail Reporter Last updated at 5:23 PM on 16th August 2008 The world's oldest mum, who gave birth to twins at 70 after IVF, proudly showed off her son, then admitted: 'Now I've got another daughter to feed too.' Omkari Panwar, and her husband Charan Singh Panwar, 77, underwent IVF all for the sake of producing a male heir to take over the family's smallholdings. The elderly Indian couple, who already have two daughters in their thirties, and five grandchildren, are near destitute after mortgaging their land, selling their buffalo and taking out a loan for the £4,400 fertility treatment. But Charan insists the cost was worthwhile, after he became a laughing stock in his village because he had no son to carry on the family name. 'I've finally got what I wanted and I can die a happy man now,' said Charan. 'My wife will look after the babies when I am gone, and after she dies my other daughters will care for them.'
