A Chinese-American mother who said ethnicity is not important after conceiving her third child at 50 via IVF using white sperm and egg donors has given birth to her son’s twin two years later, aged 53, after miracle IVF treatment.
My twins were born two years apart – I was in my mid-50s when I was pregnant, but age is just a number
A 53-YEAR-OLD mum has given birth to twins TWO YEARS apart after miracle treatment.
Single mother Lan Ma, from Pennsylvania, has two teenage children Thomas, 19, and Tyler, 17, and gave birth to Toby, now two, in June 2019 after conceiving via IVF.
The tot was conceived with the help of an egg and sperm donor via IVF on the same day as her two-year-old brother Toby.
Lan previously revealed how she and her family felt the ethnicity of the child was not important as long as there was a history of good family health and decided to use Caucasian egg and sperm donors to conceive Toby.
Lan decided to become a single mum by choice in 2018 as her eldest children were growing up and she still had a lot of ‘love to give’.
Initally, she spent £18,000 [$25,000] on sperm, eggs and medication for the donor followed by £2,640 [$3,500] for frozen embryo and transfer.
Tara’s embryo was one of nine that was created in June 2018.
Lan inisits the pregnancies in her 50s were ‘smoother’ than the two in her 30s.
Meanwhile, mum-to-be shares the symptoms of pregnancy nobody talks about.
Also, a boyfriend gave his girlfriend a pregnancy test as a joke – the baby was born five weeks later.
Plus, a woman didn’t know she was pregnant until she gave birth 15 minutes later.
