This is the first shot of a baby girl born to a 67-year-old pensioner who claimed she was naturally conceived.
The child's mother is reportedly a retired Chinese physician, Tian, who & # 39; very good & # 39; recovers after caesarean section.
If Tian's claim is true, she could be & # 39; the world's oldest natural mother and beat the last record holder at nearly 10 years of age.
The father of the baby has released images of the girl who has trouble staying awake after she was born Friday by caesarean section. The child's mother, 67, claims to have been conceived naturally

Tian told Chinese media that her pregnancy was an accident. She said she had experienced bleeding and initially thought she was sick.
The retiree said she only discovered she was pregnant when she went to the hospital for a health check, according to Jinan Times.
She said to the newspaper: & # 39; I didn't want it initially. & # 39;
The hospital said it could not confirm that Tian was conceived naturally because she was already pregnant when she took her as a patient.
Tian & # 39; s daughter was born Friday in the Chinese city of Zaozhuang in eastern China.
She weighed 2,560 grams (5.6 pounds) at birth. The couple has their child & # 39; Tianci & # 39; called, which & # 39; gift from heaven & # 39; means.

WHAT ARE THE HEALTH RISKS OF A LATE PREGNANCY?
- Greater difficulty initially conceiving a child, with the personal and psychological problems that this can cause.
- Increased risk of complications for both mother and child during pregnancy and childbirth (although the actual extent of the risk may be small).
- Greater risk of general maternal health problems, such as high blood pressure, that can contribute to complications.
- Higher risk of miscarriage in women older than 35 years.
- Higher risk of twins or triplets, which is itself associated with a higher risk of complications.
- Increased risk of a baby with a birth defect, such as Down's syndrome.
- Increased risk of pre-eclampsia.
- Increased risk of complications during labor, such as long-term labor, need for assisted birth or caesarean section, or stillbirth.
The father of the baby, 68-year-old Huang, described his newborn daughter as & # 39; obedient & # 39 ;.
The retired lawyer said his wife was breastfeeding the child and he had hired a caregiver to take care of the two.
The proud father of three showed the video of the girl struggling to stay awake for the Chinese video news site Pear.
He also called the newborn a & # 39; a gift from heaven & # 39; and promised to protect her.
Tian and her daughter left the hospital yesterday to go home, the local news site reported Qilu Net.
To bring happiness to his daughter, Huang wrapped her in a red blanket according to local customs.
He also put peanuts, dates and branches of a peach tree on the girl to wish for many offspring for her.
Huang could not hide his joy when he picked up his wife and child from the maternity and child health hospital in the city of Zaozhuang.
With a big smile on his face, the man said to a reporter: & # 39; (I am) very happy. & # 39;
He said his wife could walk without problems and had lots of breast milk.
Although Huang and Tian believe they are the oldest Chinese couple to become pregnant naturally, Tian's high age means she could have broken a world record.

Currently, & # 39; the world's oldest woman who naturally becomes pregnant is retired civil servant Dawn Brooke from Guernsey, who became pregnant at the age of 58.
She was initially afraid that her pain, craving, and exhaustion were signs of cancer.
Mrs. Brooke gave birth to a son by C-section in 1997.
& # 39; The world's oldest mother, on the other hand, is believed to be 74-year-old Erramatti Mangayamma from India, who had twins last month after undergoing IVF.

The Chinese couple already had two children before & # 39; Tianci & # 39 ;, including a son born in 1977, two years before China imposed a single child policy to control the fast-growing population.
Reports about the birth in China criticize the Twitter-like platform Weibo of the country.
& # 39; The parents are too selfish, & # 39; wrote a person. & # 39; At their old age they cannot take care of a child, and the pressure will be on the older siblings. & # 39;
"Poor child, she will start taking care of her elderly parents by the time she is 20," another wrote.

Others wondered if Tian and Huang would be punished because they had more than the current allowance for two children.
In response to criticism, Huang said he and his wife had their plans for the child.
& # 39; I know they (web users) have said something (about us). I wish to tell them not to interfere with the privacy of my family, especially that of my children, & Huang said.
& # 39; The child is born. She is a gift from heaven. We will protect her, & he added.
