71-Year-Old Woman from Mexico Claims She’s 6 Months Pregnant

Maria de la Luz from Mazatlan, Mexico might be considered the oldest mother in the history; she claims to be currently 6 months pregnant.

Three months ago, she became suspicious of being pregnant after experiencing tiredness, dizziness, and vomiting; so, she went to a private clinic for an ultrasound and, yes, it was confirmed that she’s going to be a mother again!

“My legs hurt and I was vomiting and felt dizzy. Now they have done around 10 ultrasounds in a private clinic and in the (public) social security hospital. The doctors could not believe it, they told me it is a girl. Look, you can see her little face,” she said in an interview.

Maria claims that she underwent a total of 10 ultrasounds in the last 3 months to make sure that the diagnosis is correct.

Her other children were not too happy about her pregnancy and a lot of people had been advising her to terminate her pregnancy because of her age but she, on the other hand, is thrilled to become a mother anew. In fact, she’s scheduled with a gynecologist on July 18 and expects that she will deliver her baby by caesarean section.

Her condition really raised the eyebrows of many, some are speculating that her story was simply made up because conceiving a baby at that age is close to impossible.

After her story went viral in Mexico, the expectant mother was contacted by the state hospital in her area for a checkup. They have no record of her pregnancy and the only ‘proofs’ that could supposedly determine her pregnancy are the ultrasound photos she has been showing to the reporters.

Do you think Maria’s pregnancy is real or not?
