Miracle, you would say, as a 61-year-old woman has become a mum for the first time after falling pregnant naturally.
The woman, Maria Rosaria Veneruso delivered a healthy baby boy called Elia Francesco, weighing in at 7lbs 7oz, on Monday afternoon.
Maria, who is an Italian said she and her husband Enzo were completely delighted with their new arrival.
She told local media: “I have fulfilled my dream. The future does not scare me.”
Perhaps even rarer, Maria Rosaria did not have any reproductive treatment to ensure that she got pregnant.
