World’s Oldest Mom in History? 70-Year-Old Woman Claims She is Pregnant With Her 8th Child

A 70-year-old woman has claimed that she is 6 months pregnant. According to reports, this would make her the world oldest mother if she eventually gives birth.

MetroUK gathers that Maria de la Luz, from Mazatlan, Sinaloa, Mexico, believes she is six months pregnant with a baby girl and says she has the ultrasounds to prove it.

Despite not giving away any details of the pregnancy, including whether she had IVF treatment, Maria says she first suspected she was pregnant three months ago.

”My legs hurt and I was vomiting and felt dizzy. Now they have done around 10 ultrasounds in a private clinic and in the (public) social security hospital. The doctors could not believe it.”

Speaking of the ultrasounds the mom-to-be said:

”They told me it is a girl. Look, you can see her little face,” she said at her home in Mazatlan.

Maria de la Luz said some of her children were not happy with the news that she was pregnant telling her she was too old for ‘those things’. She has an appointment with a gynaecologist on July 18 and says she is expecting to have a caesarean-delivery because of her age.

If the baby girl is born, it will make De la Luz four years older than the current record holder, Maria del Carmen Bousada de Lara.

Maria del Carmen was 66 and 358 days old when she gave birth to twin boys Christian and Pau in December 2006. They were delivered prematurely by caesarean section and weighed 3.5 lbs (1.6 kilogrammes).

She surpassed the record established in 2005 by Romanian mother Adriana Iliescu, who was also 66. Omkari Panwar from Uttar Pradesh, India claimed she was 70 when she gave birth to twins in 2008 but this was unverified.
