Farmer’s wife Rajo Devi added: “It’s amazing to finally be a mother. I’ve waited for so long to have a baby of my own.
“The doctors said I was healthier than many women half my age. I’d love to have a boy.”
Rajo, from Haryana, India, gave birth to 3lb 4oz Naveen Lohan by arranged caesarean section on November 28.
She and husband Bala Ram, 72, had been trying for a baby since they married when she was 15 and he was 17.
Rajo said: “We thought it was not meant to be. Every passing year there was less and less chance of becoming parents.”
Bala mortgaged his crop of rice and bamboo for next year and took out high-interest loans to pay for £2,000 IVF treatment.
He said: “It was hard and we made lots of sacrifices, but it’s worth it. Our family and friends are so happy for us.”
