A healthy baby boy has been born from an em­bryo frozen 16 years ago, a hospi­tal in south China an­nounced on Mon­day. A 46-year-old woman gave birth to a son at the First Af­fil­i­ated Hospi­tal of Sun Yat­sen Univer­sity in Guang­dong Prov­ince in early Fe­bru­ary, Xin­hua news agency re­ported. Her other first son, al­ready 16 years old, was from the same batch of em­bryos frozen in 2000. “I’m just re­ally ec­static to have an­other child,” said the woman.
