57 year old great-grandmother gives birth to more kids

I want to know when she had her kids, and they had their kids and so on. Is this a family tradition to breed when you are only 15?

Great-Grandmother Gives Birth to Twins

The Associated Press
Thursday, May 26, 2005; 9:03 AM

FORT PAYNE, Ala. -- A 57-year-old great-grandmother who gave birth to a set of twins last month said Thursday she danced with her husband only hours after the delivery.

"I was feeling absolutely great, almost like I hadn't delivered," Rosee Swain said on ABC's "Good Morning America." "It was just a good birth and I felt great and I was hungry. It went great."

Christian Kaczur Hart and Diana Rose Angelina, conceived through in vitro fertilization, were born April 20 at UAB Hospital in Birmingham, four weeks premature. Swain and her husband, Jay, brought the babies home to Fort Payne on Friday.

The couple, whose youngest child, Jimmy, is 6, said they did not want Jimmy to grow up as an only child.

"There are lots of options out there for older women like me," Rosee Swain said. "And women shouldn't give up hope without exploring all their options."

The couple also have two grown children, six grandchildren and four great-grandchildren.

Swain, a special education teacher, said she's ready to care for the twins, who will likely graduate from high school when she is 75 years old.

"Being a mother again at 57 isn't for everyone, but we felt it was right for us," she said.

But there will be no more new babies after this.

"Our kids have family names, and we're out of family names, so this will be it," she said on ABC.

Last November, a woman in New York City gave birth to twins just days before her 57th birthday. At the time, Aleta St. James was believed to be the oldest woman in American to give birth to twins.

Jesus christ.

At 57 she has two grown kids, a six year-old and now two twins. Someone is a glutton for punishment.

Selfish. She'll be dead before they turn 18.

Anyone else have the image coming to mind of the baby dropping out onto the floor from Monty Python's Meaning of Life?

Goody! By then her twins will each have a three-year old and a two-year old to take care of.
