US woman, 49, gives birth to grandson, acting as surrogate

Maine woman gives birth to grandson
A 49-year-old U.S. woman has given birth to her grandson after her daughter was precluded from becoming pregnant because of a heart condition.

The Portland Press Herald newspaper reports that Linda Sirois gave birth on Aug. 13 for her daughter, Angel.

Twenty-five-year-old Angel Hebert says her baby is "eating like a champ and he doesn't fuss too much."

Linda said she's offered for years to become a gestational surrogate for Angel if a doctor said she shouldn't become pregnant. Angel Hebert says she and husband Brian Hebert got that word last summer.

Linda has four children, including twins, and her youngest kids are in college.

Linda last gave birth to twins 20 years ago. She says she thinks this pregnancy might have been her easiest.

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 that 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 that there will be no more babies in our house.
