62-Year-Old California Woman Gives Birth to 12th Child

February 19, 2006 - Posted at 1:28 p.m. CST

REDDING, Calif. (AP) _ A 62-year-old great-grandmother has

become one of the oldest women in the world to successfully give

birth.

The healthy six-pound, nine-ounce baby boy is the 12th child

born to Janise Wulf of Redding, California. Wulf also has 20

grandchildren and three great-grandchildren. Her oldest child is

40.

Family members said Friday's delivery went smoothly, despite

health concerns involving Wulf, who has diabetes and has been blind

since birth.

Baby Adam is the second child born to Wulf and third husband,

Scott. Their other son is three-and-a-half. Scott Wulf, who is 48

years old, said he'd always wanted children. He said their two

sons, born through in-vitro fertilization, are beyond what he'd

hoped was possible.

Wulf isn't the oldest woman to give birth. That record went to a

Romanian woman who gave birth last year at the age of 66.
