Age is just a number!
In 2004, Aleta St. James became the oldest woman in the USA to give birth. She was 57 years old. The woman says that she never paid attention to the numbers that determined her age. She always felt young and was very busy with her career. Aleta was a theater actress. Her hundreds of fans, concerts and tours became a part of her lifestyle. Back then Aleta was confident she would still have time to become a mother and start a family.
At the age of 57, the woman finally decided on becoming a mother. This couldn’t not work out for her and she decided to undergo an IVF procedure. In the end, the woman had twins: a boy and a girl.
Initially, doctors tried to hold her back from such an idea, as she was already over 50. But she didn’t listen to anyone. She felt good, had enough energy and could do anything!
18 years have passed!
Aleta never got married, so she was to raise her children alone. There were times when they were out of money, but she never retired and worked a lot.
Now the woman is already 75 and looks just great. She says her energy and strength will be enough for some more time. She tries her best to be a good mother for her children, and rarely refuses them anything.
By the time the twins graduate from college, St. James will be about 80 years old. But for her, it’s just a number. As Aleta herself says, 70 is the new 50. And looking at her, it is impossible not to agree with this.
