July 16, 1969 - Suddenly I'm young again, grandmother Mrs. Joanna Du Plessis said today.

Mrs. Du Plessis, 58 years old, gave birth to a 5 lb. baby girl on Tuesday.

She said she had to borrow dolls clothes from one of her ten grandchildren to dress the baby because she did not know until three hours before the birth she was pregnant.

Mrs. Du Plessis became the oldest woman on record to have a child.

The Guinness Book of Records said the oldest woman previously to give birth was American Mrs. Roth Kitler who had a daughter in 1956 at the age of 57.

Mrs. Du Plessis told reporters her husband had wept for joy when he saw the baby, called Magda.

It was his first child, she said.

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.
