A 66-year-old Swiss pastor has become the oldest known woman to have given birth in Switzerland after delivering a pair of twins, newspaper SonntagsBlick reported on Sunday.

"A 66-year-old had a pair of twins at the women's clinic," Martin Vincenz, a spokesman for the cantonal hospital in eastern Switzerland's Graubünden, told the tabloid.

The previous record in Switzerland was held by a woman who was 64 when she had a baby girl, while reports suggest that the world's oldest mother is an Indian woman who gave birth to a pair of twins at the age of 70.
