In October, Tracey Britten gave birth to 3 girls and 1 boy - and officially became the oldest mother to welcome quadruplets into the UK.

Tracey already had 3 adult children but wanted another baby for nearly 10 years. Now she has 4 little blessings!

According to a report by Maroela Media, Tracey used about £7 000 (about R129 000) to have 4 embryos implanted, and miraculously, all 4 survived.

Briefly.co.za reported earlier that Tracey and Stephen opted to have her eggs extracted at the Kolan British IVF Centre in Cyprus. After fertilisation, the embryos were then implanted back into her womb.

Tracey's children are 22, 31, and 32, and now one-month-old. The mother and grandmother gave birth by caesarean and the little ones were taken to the ICU, where they're doing well.

The quads were born at 31 one weeks and their mom hopes they'll be at home before Christmas.

Tracey and Stephen are still deciding on names for their babies.

Despite being criticised by the public, Tracey is happy. She said she cried when she found out she was expecting 4 children and describes them as her little miracles.
