When many women her age are anticipating the birth of their first grandchild, California resident Arceli Keh, age 63, gave birth for the first time in 1997 to a daughter named Cynthia. The Associated Press reported that Keh and her husband, Isagani, a carpenter, spent at least $50,000 on in vitro fertilization treatments that eventually led to Cynthia's conception and birth.

"I wasn't trying to make history," Keh told The Express, a British newspaper. "I just wanted a baby."

About Catherine: I am mom to three grown sons, two grandchildren and two rescue dogs. After years of raising my boys as a single mom, I remarried a wonderful man who had never had a child of his own. Unexpectedly, I found myself pregnant at 49!
Sadly we lost our precious baby at 8 weeks, and decided to try again. Five more losses, turned down for donor egg, foster care and adoption due to my age and losses - we have accepted there will be no more babies in our house.
