A 64-year-old woman has successfully given birth to healthy twins – a boy and a girl – in northern Spain.
The hospital delivered the twins by Caesarean section, the usual method in such rare cases.
They and the mother are reported to be in good health in hospital.
The boy weighs 2.4kg and the girl 2.2kg. The delivery went without complications.
In recent years, two other Spanish women in their 60s have given birth to healthy babies.
In April 2016 an Indian woman in her 70s gave birth to a healthy boy in India’s Haryana state after fertility treatment.
