Lightbulb 62-Year-Old California Grandmother of 20 Gives Birth to Baby Boy!!

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.

"racism is dead, it died when MLK walked on a bridge and freed the slaves. Now we have a socialist Kenyan president who is not an American and if anyone mentions race they are a reverse racist (while racism is dead, reverse racism is alive and well.) #whattheyteachyouatfox"

Yikes. I feel sorry for the kid....when he's only 10 she'll be 72, when he's wanting to run around she'll be struggling behind in her motorised scooter!

A friend of mine's parents are in their 70's - she's 20. She was always embarrassed about it at school.

YIKES! In this case the age gap is even larger! Families come in all different shapes, sizes and ages, I guess!

Heavens above! One guesses there is still time for one to churn out some sproggs of my own. MiniGinnys.

I'd be the oldest mother in the universe - at 95. And it would have to be an emmaculate conception. Daddy is the vicar you know.

Was the Bingo Hall shut down for the week? ...As a community we have to ask what happened here.

A selfish Mother and Father just introduced another child who will still be grappling with "how to read a clock" when they are rotting!

Just because you "can" bring a child into this world, certainly doesn't mean you "Should". IMO...

Please tell me they were not aiming for Guinness Book Of Records?...because then they should both be shot. Never drink tea...see what happens!

****** Dasha Sam, Jarka, Casey, Serena , then the guys with nice asses on the ATP, followed by other Aussies, bit of a gap...then Venus.....bit of a bum scratch...then will watch Lisiki or Radwanksa...gap...everyone else (or sleep) ******

I don't think the problem here is having a kid when you're old... but that woman has had WAY too many children.
