They appear at first glance to be like any other semi-retired fifty-somethings.

But this Gold Coast couple is about to have their lives turned upside-down by becoming parents for the first time - without the help of IVF treatment.

All going to plan, at Pindara Hospital on June 15, Anthea Burns, 50 years old, will become one of the oldest women in Australia to have a baby who was conceived naturally.

The Australian record for the oldest mother was broken last year by a 57-year-old woman who gave birth to twins in a Perth hospital after receiving IVF treatment.

The couple have had no regrets before or since, and have set up a special trust for son Harry in case they died before he turned 18 years old.

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.
