A 61-year-old woman has given birth to her own granddaughter in the United States after serving as a surrogate for her son and his husband.

The woman, Cecile Eledge, from Nebraska, had been through menopause but was nonetheless approved for surrogacy.

She volunteered to carry the child for nine months and give birth in order to help her son, Matthew Eledge, and his husband, Elliot Dougherty, become parents.

The couple have told medіа that the birth of their first child was possible due to the “selfless women” in their lives.

The egg was donated by Mr Dougherty’s sister.

Doctors fertilised the egg using Mr Eledge’s sperm, and the embryo was then implanted in his mother’s womb.

Ms Eledge gave birth to a baby girl, named Uma, last week at the Nebraska medісаɩ Centre in Omaha.
