61-Year-Old Woman Gives Birth To Her Own Granddaughter

Cecile Eledge wanted her son Matthew and his husband Elliot to have a child of their own, so she volunteered to be a surrogate.

Eledge was approved as a surrogate despite having gone through menopause 10 years ago. Doctors say Eledge was an ‘exceptional case’ and that her outstanding health made it possible.
