68-year-old woman reportedly welcomes first child in Ogun state

Congratulations are in order for a 68-year-old Nigerian woman as she reportedly welcomes her first child after several years of trying.

Last week, the woman, who had longed for a child for years, finally gave birth to a newborn baby in Abeokuta, the capital of Ogun state.

A video making rounds online captures the moment she was pacing around in her hospital room during labor, and later cradled her baby.

While this incident is remarkable, it is worth noting that the Abeokuta mother is not the oldest woman to give birth.

Erramatti Mangamma holds that title, having given birth at the age of 73 through in-vitro fertilization via caesarean section in Hyderabad, India.

The yet-to-be-identified woman has sparked mixed reactions on social media, with some congratulating her on the arrival of her bundle of joy while others expressed disbelief.
