A 64-year-old Ugandan woman identified as Safinah Namukwaya has given birth after 24 years of marriage.
The woman, who got married to her husband Badru Walusimbi in 1996, lives in Nunda Village in Lwabenge Sub County, Kalungu District, How Africa reports.
Legit.ng gathers that the woman tried having babies in her first marriage (1973-1987) with another man, but had an ectopic pregnancy where the baby developed outside the main cavity of the uterus and did not survive.
The woman, who hit menopause at the age of 45, has finally been blessed with a child with her second husband despite her advanced age.
All Safinah ever wanted was to have at least one child and this has been fulfilled after 24 years of marriage.
In Africa, the pressure of having children is usually on couples in their second year of marriage, and the inability to bear children is one of the causes of broken marriages.
Meanwhile, Legit.ng previously reported that a 30-year-old mother of 12 in Kaduna state identified as Zainab Hassan delivered quadruplets without healthcare.
When Zainab went into labour, she delivered her babies at home herself because the nearest hospital is far away, and she can only reach it via commercial canoes and then bike.
