Woman Who Gave Birth At 66 Wants Second Child
A 72-year-old woman who had a daughter when she was 66 is planning to have a second child, Spanish media reported Sunday.
Adriana Iliescu, who was the world’s oldest new mother in 2005 when she gave birth to Eliza Maria Bogdana, said: “It could be a son if God and the doctors want.”
The Romanian university lecturer said if she had a son “he would act as a support, who would protect me.”
Iliescu caused a stir when she gave birth to Eliza in 2005 after conceiving through IVF.
In 2006, Carmen Bousada became the oldest mother when she gave birth to twins at the age of 67 in Barcelona, Spain. She died later of cancer leaving the care of the twins to cousins.
Then, in 2008, Rajo Devi Lohan, who claimed she was 70, gave birth to a daughter in India.
Speaking to the Spanish newspaper El Mundo from her home in Bucharest, Iliescu said: “I have thought of having another child soon."
“This time it could be a son if God and the doctors want. It would make me very happy to have a son. In 15 years he and Eliza could take me for a walk through the neighborhood,” she added.
In 15 years, of course, Iliescu would be 87 years old.
