An Austrian woman had her second child when aged 66 after becoming a first-time mother at 61.

A spokeswoman at the hospital in southern Austria where the birth took place on Tuesday said that mother and child were doing fine.

According to media reports the pregnancy was made possible by artificial insemination that had been performed abroad. The hospital released no further information on the patient.

Austria's oldest mother is also one of the oldest women worldwide to have given birth to a healthy child.

In December 2006 a 67-year-old woman from Spain became the world's oldest mother.
