65-Year-Old Grandmother Gives Birth to Quadruplets

Annegret Raunigk, the 65-year-old German woman who was pregnant with quadruplets, has reportedly given birth.

According to ABC, the grandmother of TK (and mother of 13 children already) had three boys named Dries, Bence and Fjonn, and one girl named Neeta, who were born premature via C-section at 26 weeks in a Berlin hospital but have “good chances of surviving”.

“However the babies, in comparison with a normal birth in the 40th week, are not completely developed, so eventual complications can’t be ruled out,” the report read.

But, so far, so good. Raunigk and her new brood are reportedly being closely monitored. Raunigk previously made headlines when she had a baby at 55.

She became pregnant after undergoing several artificial insemination procedures in Ukraine, RTL said.

The channel has negotiated exclusive rights to the story and has followed the build-up to the births, although it said no filming was done in the hospital where the babies were born.

Ms Raunigk made headlines in April when the German press first reported that her latest artificial insemination attempt had resulted in a quadruple pregnancy.

At the time, she said she decided to try to have another child because her youngest daughter, who is nine, wanted a little brother or sister, according to RTL.
