Mum aged 72 considering having another baby

Mum who had a daughter at 66 says she wants another, which would make her the world’s oldest mum


A 72-year-old mum who gave birth aged 66 says she’s considering having another baby to give her five-year-old daughter a sibling, reports the Telegraph.


Adriana Lliescu became the world’s oldest mum in January 2005 when she gave birth to daughter Eliza, now five. She now says she’s thinking about having another baby after hearing of fertility trials in England.

“Medically it’s possible. I understand there are trials going on with a 70-year-old woman in England so it could be done,” said Adriana.

“I am fine and healthy and I think it could be possible to have another child in the future. Eliza is energetic and fun. She is everything to me and nothing else counts or matters. But it’s not impossible for me to have another child.”

If Adriana goes ahead with fertility treatment to conceive again, she will once again become the world’s oldest mum, beating Rajo Devi, a 70-year-old Indian woman who gave birth in November 2008 who is currently holding the title.


Back in July 2009, a former world’s oldest mum, Maria del Carmen Bousada de Lara, died of cancer thought to have been brought on by her fertility treatment. She left her 3-year-old twin boys orphaned.
