Woman aged 67 gives birth to twins in Spain to become world's oldest mother
The Associated Press


MADRID, Spain: A 67-year-old Spanish woman became the world's oldest mother after she gave birth to twins in the northern city of Barcelona on Saturday, a hospital official said.

The woman, whose identity has not been revealed by Sant Pau hospital, gave birth by caesarian section on Saturday having previously undergone in vitro fertilization in the United States, according to the national news agency EFE.

Originally from the southern region of Andalucia, the new mother chose the Barcelona hospital because it specializes in high-risk births.

The mother and twins are all doing well though the babies are both in incubators, a hospital spokeswoman said. The hospital did not reveal the gender of the twins.

The previous holder of the oldest mother record was 66-year-old Romanian citizen Adriana Iliescu who gave birth to baby Eliza Maria in Jan. 2005.

In vitro, so she chose to do this? Sounds like a decision a doctor with a duty to some ethical standard besides money should've talked her out of.

It was my super sperm. I donated six of them and had them shipped over.

If we could steal the secret to Spanish/latino reproduction numbers and blend them with the size of Eastern Europeans we could have the most dominant O line in the NFL in a few years...
