A 60-year-old woman in Indiana in the US gave birth to two babies.
Claudette Cook and her husband had decided to start a family last year and saw an in vitro fertilisation specialist who gave her the go-ahead.
Now, she’s a mother for the first time after her 60th birthday. “Isaac came out first, and Isaiah came out second,” said Cook.
“I cried. I was like, you know, you look at TV and you see other people in the delivery room and you’re like, oh my goodness. And, it was me. So, joy, it was so sweet,” Cook said while holding her husband, Ross’s hand.
“Everything changed in that moment. Once they’re born, your life changes.”
Isaac and Isaiah were born last Sunday, each five pounds, almost a month before Cook’s due date. She had a C-section to ensure a healthy delivery.
Claudette and Ross met 10 years ago in church. Nine years ago, doctors told her she would never have children because of her age.
“Doors started opening up, and BAM, here they are,” said Claudette. The couple says, with the power of prayer, anything is possible.
