In a bizarre revelation, a 70-year-old woman who claims she is six months pregnant with her eighth child will become the oldest mother in history if she gives birth.

Maria de la Luz has already shown reporters ultrasound scans which she says confirm she is six months pregnant with a baby girl.

 

However, De la Luz, who did not reveal any details of the pregnancy including whether she had had IVF treatment or other similar procedures, said she first suspected she was pregnant three months ago.

Speaking to reporters she said that her legs hurt and she was feeling pukish and dizzy.

“They have done around 10 ultrasounds in a private clinic and in the (public) social security hospital. The doctors could not believe it,” she told reporters.

If the baby girl is born, it will make De la Luz four years older than the current record holder, Maria del Carmen Bousada de Lara.

Currently the oldest verified mother in the world, Bousada de Lara was 66 years and 358 days old when she gave birth to twin baby boys, Christian and Pau, in December 2006.

 

They were delivered prematurely by caesarean section and weighed 3.5 lbs (1.6 kg) each.
