A 49-year-old US 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 August 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”.
Sirois said she's offered for years to become a gestational surrogate for Angel if a doctor said she shouldn't become pregnant.
Hebert says she and husband Brian Hebert got that word last summer.
Sirois has four children, including twins, and her youngest kids are in college.
She says she thinks this pregnancy might have been her easiest. - Sapa-AP
