A 55-year-old woman who gave birth to triplets for a daughter who was medically unable to conceive said Wednesday she was “a caring incubator” and was awe-struck when she learned she was carrying three children.
Tina Cade delivered her own grandchildren — two boys and a girl — by Caesarean section Tuesday at Bon Secours St. Mary’s Hospital. She served as a surrogate for her oldest daughter, Camille Hammond, and Hammond’s husband, Jason.
She told NBC’s “Today” that she was “awe-struck — I could not believe it” when the doctor told her there would be triplets.
