Looking after a six-year-old can be exhausting, even for those in the prime of their life.

So spare a thought 76-year-old for Omkari Singh – the world’s oldest mother – and her schoolboy son Akashvani.

In 2008, Mrs Singh, from Uttar Pradesh, northern India, made headlines around the world after giving birth to twins Akashvani and Barsaat at the age of 70.

The female twin Barsaat tragically died at the age of four, but her son is perfectly healthy.

Despite receiving a barrage of criticism both online and from her local community for having children so late in life, Mrs Singh, who is married to Charan, 89, says she could not be more happy.

She said: ‘Many people ask me, “Is he your grandson?” I tell them “No. He is my son”.
