A 70-year-old woman claims that she is six months pregnant with her eighth child.

She will become the oldest woman to give birth if it proves to be true, shares Daily Mail.

Maria de la Luz, from Mazatlan, a city in Mexico, appeared on television and showed reported ultrasound scans which she says confirms she is six months pregnant with a baby girl.

‘They told me it is a girl. Look, you can see her little face,’ she said.

Maria, who did not reveal whether she had conceived naturally or through IVF, said she first suspected she was pregnant three months ago.

She told reporters, ‘My legs hurt and I was vomiting and felt dizzy. Now they have done around 10 ultrasounds in a private clinic and in the (public) social security hospital. The doctors could not believe it.’

She has an appointment with a gynaecologist on July 18 and she said she is expecting to have a caesarean-delivery because of her age.

  • Why? Why would you think it was ok to bring a baby into the world at age 70!? That poor child. No matter how healthy mum is now, statistically she won’t have long with this baby


  • If it is true, hopefully the baby gets the care that they require


  • Oh goodness, that is a bit too old.


  • I think it’s highly irresponsible. I mean think about it- is she going to leave her child to someone in her will? As far as it goes statistics say that she will die when her child is still around 15 years of age- not old enough to live on their own. Also, how is she going to cope with a pregnancy at her age? How is she going be be able to play with and nurture her child? It takes a lot of energy that people at her age just don’t have.


  • Oh My God. I’m not sure if she’s happy about her situation or not. I imagine not IVF if she didn’t realise she was pregnant. IVF is very carefully managed and you know everything that’s going on… and I thought there was a cut-off. I don’t know whether to be happy for her or not.


  • Wow, hope all goes well for her and her little bub.


  • Miracles do happen sometimes good luck Maria


  • Don’t know how to feel on this one. I wish her and the baby all the best. Glad it’s not me.


  • If it is legitimate it couldn’t possibly have been natural


  • This doesn’t sound natural to me.


  • I certainly wouldn’t want this happening to me at that age.


  • Oh dear god haha


  • Surely not??? But if so she’s crazy. No one wants a newborn at 70!!


  • 70!!!! How can you even consider a new baby at that age?! It would have to be IVF, it would be impossible to conceive naturally at that age. I hope so, I’m early 50s and plan to stop contraception soon, I don’t want a surprise baby at 70


  • I hope you follow this story all the way till the end, very interesting!
