German mother of 13 pregnant with quadruplets at age 65

65-Year-Old Pregnant With Quadruplets

Annegret Raunigk already has 13 children, which is quite an accomplishment, but her biggest feat will likely be giving birth to quadruplets ... at 65-years-old.

The German school teacher first caught headlines when she got pregnant at 55 and now it appears she's about to one-up herself.

She told The Daily Mail she decided to keep having children because her youngest daughter, who is 9, wanted a little brother or sister and Annegret feels she is still healthy and capable of taking care of more kids. She'll definitely be put to the test with this new group on the way.

Her baker's dozen of children, the oldest of whom is 44, have five different fathers and she was able to achieve her most recent pregnancy by artificial insemination with donated sperm and eggs.

She is currently in her second trimester and hasn't had any major complications so far. If everything goes well, the babies should arrive in the summer and Annegret will become the world's oldest mother of quadruplets.

Currently the oldest woman to have given birth to quads is Merryl Fudel, at the age of 55.

The world's oldest mother to give birth is believed to be Omkari Panwar of India. She gave birth to girl/boy twins in 2008 with the help of in vitro fertilization at the age of 70.
