A 51-year-old woman has given her daughter the best gift known to man after giving birth to her first grandchild.
Julie Loving, who served as a surrogate for her daughter and son-in-law, delivered the baby through C-section on November 2.
The US grandmother’s delivery was termed as difficult and almost miraculous by her child Breanna Lockwood.
Breanna and her husband had difficulty when it came to conceiving and their mother stepped in without flinching and carried the pregnancy to term successfully.
“My mom was an absolute rockstar throughout the difficult delivery. The sacrifices she took to bring this little slice of heaven into our world takes my breath away,” Julie’s daughter said.
Daily Mail reported the 51-year-old was already menopausal but felt up to the challenge when the opportunity to help presented itself. Breanna and Aron had been together for four years and during the whole period, the couple tried to conceive a child.
The odds were never stacked in their favour and they were always met with disappointment. The new mum went through surgery, egg extraction and even suffered an ectopic pregnancy during her quest for motherhood.
