Great-Grandmother Gives Birth
Thanks to Big Gary for directing my attention to Janise Wulf
, the 62-year-old great-grandmother who just gave birth to her 12th child. Gary wasn't totally sure that the story was real, but I'm pretty sure it is. After all, on my page about birth hoaxes
I note a true story of a 63-year-old woman who gave birth back in 1997. And the Guardian reports
that the oldest woman ever to give birth was Adriana Iliescu, who did so at the age of 66 last year. I know a lot of kids are raised by their grandparents, but it would still be weird to be a teenager and have an 80-year-old mom.
