Britains oldest mother and her new sonBritain's oldest mother brought her baby home for the first time yesterday.

Elizabeth Adeney, 66, looked radiant as she lifted her son lovingly out of her car.

She is reported to have named him Jolyon - which means 'young at heart'.

They were discharged from Addenbrooke's Hospital in Cambridge yesterday afternoon and picked up by a female friend and another woman, believed to a nanny, in Mrs Adeney's car which was recently fitted with a child seat.

The wealthy businesswoman smiled broadly as she gently carried her little boy, who appeared to have a tube coming from his nose, into her £600,000 detached house in the Suffolk hamlet of Lidgate.

It was a moment she has dreamed of for most of her adult life.

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.
