SIXTY-year-old woman becomes a first-time mom by IVF - nine years after being told she was too old to have children
A 60-year-old woman has celebrated becoming a mother for the first time after giving birth to healthy twin boys.
Claudette Cook married her husband Ross, 55, 10 years ago after meeting in church in Pike County, Indiana.
A year later she was told, at the age of 51, she was too old to have children.
