Woman Is Also Grandmother of 20 and Great-Grandmother of Three



REDDING, Calif. (AP) - A 62-year-old woman gave birth Friday to a healthy 6-pound, 9-ounce baby boy, becoming one of the oldest women in the world to successfully bear a child.

Janise Wulf gave birth to her 12th child. She is also a grandmother of 20 and a great-grandmother of three.

Family members said the delivery went smoothly, despite earlier concerns about the mother's health. Wulf, a diabetic, experienced swelling and higher blood pressure earlier this week, prompting doctors to perform the Caesarean section a week early.

Wulf and her third husband, Scott, 48, named the red-haired boy Adam Charles Wulf. He follows just 3 1/2 years behind his older brother, Ian.

"I hate to raise one alone, without a sibling," said Wulf, who was impregnated both times through in vitro fertilization.

The oldest woman on record to give birth is a 66-year-old Adriana Iliescu of Romania, who had a Caesarean section Jan. 15, 2005.

The Guinness Book of World Records also lists two 63-year-old women who have given birth: Rosanna Della Corte of Italy in 1994 and Acheli Keh of California in 1996. News reports, however, list Della Corte's age at 62 when she gave birth.

WoW is all I can say!!!

Because women go through the menopause way before 62. Once a woman goes through that period, she can no longer conceive children.

Right? Or am I missing something. Not sure but it seemed like an interesting bit of news

imagine that kid when he brings his mother to school, it'd be like bringing grandma.

And those poor great grandchildren. Imagine having a great uncle younger than you are. That is just wrong and why would you want to have a kid at the age of 62?
