A 56-year-old mother in Utah, United States, is pregnant with her son’s baby after offering to be the surrogate for her grandchild. The story of how this American family decided to have a surrogate baby starts with Cambria, daughter-in-law of Nancy Hauck, being unable to carry her fifth child. Cambria and Jeff are married with four kids, specifically two sets of twins, and Cambria is unable to carry another pregnancy after having a life-saving hysterectomy. Even so, the couple wanted more children, and that was when Nancy volunteered to be the vessel to carry her son’s fifth child, a girl.
Naturally, there was some concern about Nancy being the surrogate at her age, and the last time she was pregnant was 26 years ago. Nevertheless, doctors reassured her that it was possible, and Nancy decided to do it quickly before she entered menopause. According to TMZ, Jeff told SWS that he “felt grateful to have such a selfless and loving mom that was willing to make that kind of sacrifice for” his family.
“Having experienced over four years of infertility treatments, I knew how complicated the process can be and doubted that it was possible for her to carry a baby for us, but I was very moved that she would even offer,” he added.
