Oldest Mother Says She Wants Another Baby At 72

BUCHAREST, ROMANIA - 2008. EXCLUSIVE: File photo of Adriana Iliescu aged 70 with her daughter Elisa aged 2 and a half in 2008, on the streets of Bucharest, Romania. Adriana Iliescu, who became the world's oldest mum when she gave birth at 66, wants another baby. The 72-year-old says she is considering having a younger brother or sister for her five-year-old daughter Eliza. "Medically, it's possible," she says. "I understand there are trials going on with a 70-year-old woman in England, so it could be done. But I'm not in a rush at the moment." The pensioner, who cares for Eliza on her own, insists she is healthy and still works as a part time lecturer in Bucharest, despite looking like a great grandma. Adriana, who underwent IVF in Romania using a donor egg and donor sperm, is annoyed that her record as the world's oldest mum has been beaten after Indian woman Rajo Devi gave birth at 70. She insists she may still be the record holder as Rajo and Spanish woman Carmen Bousada, 67, could not produce a birth certificate. (Photo by Laurentiu Garofeanu/Barcroft Media / Getty Images)
