Elizabeth Adeney is reported to have had a son weighing in at 5lb 3oz, and both are said to be 'extremely well'.
Divorcee Mrs Adeney, from Suffolk, had travelled to the Ukraine for IVF because clinics in the UK won't treat women over the age of 50.
The infant was delivered by Caesarean section at Addenbrooke’s Hospital in Cambridge on Tuesday. Doctors are understood to have brought the procedure forward a day because Mrs Adeney, who carried her son almost to full term, had developed a complication.
The Daily Mail reports a friend as saying: 'Lizzie is absolutely thrilled. This is something she thought might never happen. She can't wait to get home and start her new life with her boy.'
