A 65-year-old woman has given birth to quadruplets after having 13 children previously, which now sums up the number of her children to 17.
Annegret Raunigk, a teacher from Berlin, Germany, gave birth to a girl, Neeta, and three boys: Dries, Bence and Fjonn through a Caesarean Section at a Berlin hospital on Tuesday, May 19, 2015.
It was learnt that the quadruplets weighed between one lb, seven ounces and two lbs, two ounces each.
Reports have it that the mother and her children were healthy although the babies were placed under close scrutiny by paramedics as they were born prematurely at only 26 weeks.
Raunigk, also a grandmother of seven children, has received severe backlash from medical professionals in the country for choosing to have more children after initial 13 and at the age of 65.
Her former children from five different fathers were aged between 9 and 44.
Last month, she disclosed that she decided to become pregnant again because her 9-year-old daughter, Leila who she had at 55, wanted a younger sibling.
In defence of her action, Raunigk who admitted that she never knew the fertilization process could produce four children said, “They can see it how they want to and I’ll see it the way I think is right.”
