54-year-old Tracey Thompson from North Texas has given birth to her own granddaughter after serving as a surrogate for her 28-year-old daughter.
Tracey delivered a 6-pound 11-ounce girl at The Medical Center of Plano.
Doctors at the hospital said her daughter , Kelley McKissack and her husband, Aaron McKissack, had undergone multiple infertility treatments only to suffer three miscarriages.
According to a hospital statement released on Thursday, the Wylie, Texas, couple had four fertilized embryos left, so Tracey Thompson offered to be a surrogate, despite being seven years past menopause.
The embryos were implanted in Thompson’s womb last April.
The child was named Kelcey( a combination of the mother’s and grandmother’s names.)
