Loving - Elizabeth Adeney with baby JocelynTenderly cradling the tiny baby, she looks every inch a doting grandmother.

In fact, this is Britain's oldest mother, out with her new son Jolyon on a shopping trip.

Elizabeth Adeney, 66, and her live-in nanny were spotted browsing Cambridge's high street with the baby.

Mrs Adeney, a divorcee, looked smitten with the son she fought so hard for, as she bottle fed him in a local restaurant.

She conceived Jolyon after travelling to the Ukraine to have IVF, which is banned in the UK for women over 50.

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.
