Late Childbirth at 66: How did the baby look 14 years later?
This story happened quite a long time ago, but it stirred up the whole world.
Romania, 2005, a 66-year-old lady named Adriana Iliescu gives birth to her first child and becomes the oldest mother in the world and enters the Guinness Book of Records! (but this title did not last long, a year later it was overtaken by a Spaniard who gave birth to twins when she was almost 67).
Why did this woman make the decision to have a child so late? Adriana was married only once, and that marriage lasted only four years. Adriana divorced when she was 24, and then she lived out of wedlock for more than 50 years. She admits that she always wanted children, but she had no worthy partners, and she had to work hard and build a career to support herself.
But the dream of becoming a mother remained. When Adriana was 55, she was determined to realize her dream. Especially since technology has been developing, and in the 2000s in Romania there is an opportunity to do IVF. Adriana took advantage of this service and gave birth to her first child, a daughter Elisa.
Late сhildbirth at the age of 66. It was considered unbelievable at this time! Many doctors declared that neither the child nor the mother would survive. Fortunately, this did not happen. According to local media reports, the baby was born healthy. Local newspapers immediately picked up the news about “the world’s oldest mother”, and later the news spread across the country.
The hype surrounding this event subsided a little over time, and Adriana continued to raise her daughter. She lived in an ordinary apartment in Bucharest, Adriana’s pension was only 250 euros, which is not much money. They may have had some earnings, thanks to their media exposure, but they were certainly not cosmic.
This photo was taken in 2008, the child is 3 years old, they go with their mother to the store.
In general, it should be noted that Adriana is one of the most “media old-aged moms”, there are many pictures of her on the Web. Now there are already mothers who gave birth at 70+, but you can’t find anything about the fate of their children.
Supposedly Elise in this photo is 7-8 years old.
In interviews, Adriana admits that she sometimes gets mishaps in the street and is mistaken for a grandmother, but she is not embarrassed by her late motherhood. She is happy and is fully committed to raising her child.
Did the child have any health problems? Yes, but no more and no less than normal children born at a normal maternal age. In this photo, the girl is 14 years old and looks like a perfectly healthy and adequately mature teenager.
Adriana’s health is fine, too. Time flies and daughter grows up. The teenage years are beginning, and the child is no different from her peers. She also socializes, has fun, sits on social networks.
Adriana is 80 this year and her daughter Elise is 14. This is how they look now.
We would like to wish the ageing mother good health and many more years of life. There are still many interesting things ahead in her life: teenager parenting, Elise’s boyfriends, college and marriage.
