Senior Citizen Gives Birth to Quadruplets
Move over, Octomom. Annegret Raunigk, 65, has given birth to four babies in the 26th week of pregnancy, making her the world’s oldest mom of quads. Doctors questioned the German schoolteacher’s decision, warning her of the risks. But Raunigk, already a mother of 13, said her nine-year-old’s desire for a sibling prompted her to get fertility treatments in Ukraine. Her three boys and a girl — all weighing under 2.3 lbs — are being cared for in a Berlin hospital, and are said to have a strong chance of survival.
