The babies, a boy and a girl, were delivered by doctors at Recoletas Hospital.
Reports state that the woman went through in-vitro fertilization to conceive the kids which is an assisted reproduction treatment. The boy and girl weigh 5.3 lbs. and 4.8 lbs. respectively.
Back in 2011, when Mia is already 58 years old back then, she has been given birth to her first daughter at the same hospital.
Spanish media reports said Thursday that she lost custody of the first daughter in 2014 after a family court found she had been neglectful.
The delivery was a coordinated effort involving a medical team that included two gynecologists, two pediatricians, two midwives and a handful of nurses. He states that all they could do to face the situation and do what was in the best interest of the babies.
Although it is not usual for a woman of MIA's age to deliver a baby, however she does not hold a record. Her husband, Mohinder Singh Gill, a 79-year-old man, after approximately 50 years of marriage managed to be a father.
Martin confirmed to the AP on Wednesday that the hospital was discussing with the regional government's social services the woman's ability and resources to take care of her twins.
Data from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention show that 600 babies were born to women between 50 and 54 years old in 2012.
Dr. Ruth M. Farrell, a bioethicist in the Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology at Cleveland Clinic, stated that previous studies indicate that as maternal age increases, the risk of developing health complications for the pregnant female increase too.
