World’s Oldest Mother Adriana Iliescu, 72, Wants Second Child

In January 2005, Adriana Iliescu, then aged 66, gave birth to a healthy baby girl conceived through IVF. Now, with Eliza aged 5 and going to school, Mrs. Iliescu talks about the possibility of having a second child.

Mrs. Iliescu’s case caused quite a ruckus in the media at the time, as it went to become the first time a woman gave birth at such an advanced age.

Speaking of age and whether she’d do it all over again, Mrs. Iliescu tells the Daily Mail she wouldn’t say no to another child since it’s medically possible for her to become pregnant again – while her health also allows her to dream of many years still to come for her.

Still, that’s not to say that Mrs. Iliescu is under any illusion about how old she is or what an odd figure she must strike when she walks Eliza to school and she’s nothing like the rest of the other moms, something that the girl also picked on.

“I try not to look in the mirror, because I don’t enjoy it. The mirror is unkind to women, but if we are talking about my energy then I feel like a young woman,” Mrs. Iliescu says.

It’s this energy that has allowed her to even consider having a second child. She doesn’t smoke and doesn’t drink, and has parents who got to live until a very respectable old age.

“I feel like I’m 27 and when I feel a bit more tired, I feel like I’m 37. I am healthier than women more than half my age. People think they are being funny when they call me granny, but I didn’t have Eliza to make me look younger. I never feel my years,” the mother says for the Mail.

“Medically, it’s possible,” Mrs. Iliescu says when asked about whether she’d go through IVF and pregnancy again to give Eliza a sibling.

“I understand there are trials going on with a 70-year-old woman in England, so it could be done. I am fine and healthy and I think it would be possible to have another child in the future, but I’m not in a rush at the moment,” she explains.
