61 year-old grandmother Cecile Reynek Eledge gave birth to her very own granddaughter, who was originally conceived via in vitro fertilization (IVF).
Eledge served as a gestational surrogate to her granddaughter for her gay son Matthew Eledge and son in-law Elliot Dougherty.
Eledge’s mother carried and delivered their baby while Dougherty’s sister donated eggs to conceive.
But before anything could be said and done there was just one little thing that had to be taken into consideration: her age.
So, Reynek Eledge underwent a series of tests before getting the okay from doctors that because of her great level of physical health (!!) she was a totally acceptable candidate to serve as a gestational surrogate.
