Lori Riner is a mom again — at age 48. The Sparta woman gave birth Friday to a boy and became the oldest woman to deliver at Franciscan Skemp Medical Center without the aid of fertility treatment.

Lori’s 12-year-old granddaughter named the baby Tucker.

At first, Lori thought she was going through menopause. But, she said, “menopause doesn’t kick.”

She asked her husband, Sonny, to sit down when she broke the news about the pregnancy.

“Of course, I was shocked,” Sonny said. “But I was happy. Most couples would be devastated, but we were not devastated.”

The couple has been married four years and have children from previous marriages in their 20's and 30's, in addition to their granddaughter.

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.
