ENGLAND (KLTV) - By the time her child is 19 years old she will be 85. Some call it shocking and others a miracle.

According to an ABC report, 66-year-old Elizabeth Adeney is eight months pregnant and a first-time mother. Adeney, who lives close to Lidgate, Suffolk, in southeastern England, had to go to Ukraine to receive in vitro fertilization because most clinics have an age limit on who can receive IVF.

With today's technological advances, more and more women over the age of 50 are trying to get pregnant. The oldest woman to give birth in the world did so last year at the age of 70.

So, what do you think about the growing trend of "older" new moms? Leave us your comments.
