Wo­man, 60, gi­ves birth to twins

Times of Suriname - - ENGELS -

USA - Ne­ver say ne­ver. Ni­ne ye­ars af­ter Clau­det­te Cook was told that she would ne­ver ha­ve child­ren due to her age, the Ala­ba­ma wo­man ga­ve birth to he­al­thy twin boys – at age 60.

Cook star­ted fer­ti­li­ty tre­at­ments last fall, and found out she was preg­nant ear­lier this year.

“It is so aweso­me,

it’s was li­ke, ‘Oh my good­ness, I’ve got TWO in he­re!’ ” Cook told WAFF News. “And then we kept loo­king at the ul­tra­sounds, and my hus­band kept ta­king pic­tu­res.”

On Sun­day, one month be­fo­re her due da­te, Cook de­li­ve­r­ed the fra­ter­nal twins, both weig­hing 5 lbs., via Csec­ti­on. “Is­aac ca­me out first and Isai­ah ca­me out se­cond,” she says. “I cried. It was joy.” “Eve­ry­thing chan­ged just in that mo­ment when they we­re born. Your li­fe chan­ges.”

Cook met her hus­band ten ye­ars ago at Church, and cre­dits their faith for get­ting them through the pro­cess of trying to con­cei­ve.

“Age is not a num­ber with God,” she says. “Plus I was he­al­thy and in good sha­pe. And I was li­ke, ‘God, I know I can do this. No mat­ter how hard it was, it was li­ke, he brought me through it all.’ ” The twins are staying in the hos­pi­tal for a few mo­re weeks for ob­ser­va­ti­on, but the ba­bies and mom are all do­ing well.
