Comparing two original and microfilmed Church Record sources

I am having issue regarding two sources which cannot be both true.

They both have records from Original Church Record Books, microfilmed inLocal Historical Archives of my birth town.

The first one is from Baptism Parish Church Record Book, which I cite as:

St. Nikola's Church (Jezevica, Cacak): "Baptism Record Book 1864-1875," p. 142, no. 6, Delic Drinka Ljubomir baptism (1875), microfilm 10, frame Scan 00154; Historical Archives, Cacak.

Source citation from this book cite Mrs. Rayka Delic as a godfather for new baptized Drinka on February 2nd 1875. She is also cited as a widow of Mr. Nikola Delic, so her husband passed away before that particular baptism.

 

The other record is from Marriage Record Book of the same Parish Church, which I cite as

 

 

St. Nikola's Church (Jezevica, Cacak): "Marriage Record Book 1881-1904," p. 156, no. 20, Delic-Popovic marriage (1901), microfilm 11, frame Scan 00051; Historical Archives, Cacak.

Source citation from this book cite Mr. Nikola and Mrs. Rayka Delic as a parents of Sreten Delic, who was born (according the same citation) on March 10th 1878.

 

My question is: How is it possible to someone give birth to child THREE YEARS AFTER HIS OWN DEATH? What to do for those citations, how to find which one is true?

Sincerely and GRATEFULY yours,
