Kaur underwent two years of the fertility treatment with the support of her husband, age 79, with whom she has been married for the past 46 years, notes The Telegraph,

It is unclear why the couple did not have a child earlier, though blocked fallopian tubes and miscarriages have been mentioned, reports the Hindustan Times.
