The Happiness Of Russian Woman Aged 60 Gives Birth After L.o.s.i.n.g Her 29-Year-Old Son
A mother l.e.f.t devastated by the d.e.a.t.h of her grown-up son 10 years ago has had another baby – at aged 60. Galina Hrustaev gave birth to little Cleopatra by Cesa-rean sec-tion at the Filatov Hospital in the Russian capital Moscow, and has since been proudly been showing off the little girl on social media.
But she has so far refused to say whether she had any help conceiving – despite the fact there has only been one recorded case of a woman getting pregnant naturally over the aged of 60. Galina’s motivation to have another child was sparked by the tragic l.o.s.s of her son a d.e.c.a.d.e ago. Her husband Alexey, meanwhile, has a 27-year-old daughter from his first marriage.
‘The main thing is that I tragically l.o.s.t my son of 29 years from my first marriage just when he was in the prime of life,’ she revealed. Afterwards I felt an incredible desire to have another child, even though it was so late in life, and I have now fulfilled that desire.’ Galina, who did not say how her son had d.i.e.d, said that she was now devoting all of her efforts to spending time with Cleopatra, who was born weighing just over six pounds. Alexey told Russian media they were both delighted with the new arrival – and others seem to be just as happy.
She was born on January 2015. Now the little girl is 7 years old, she looks like so beautiful and healthy, neither physiologically nor intellectually different from her peers. She goes to kindergarten, can already read, and loves dancing, which is why her parents enrolled her in a dance school
Her close friend Faina Sukhorukova posted on her Facebook page: ‘I know that you always said you wanted another baby, but I never knew that you really meant it. I’ve always admired your determination, congratulations. I know you will be a perfect mother.’
