Multiple Births Unusual Baby Stories

56-year-old Gives Birth To Triplet Grandchildren

Not only has a 56-year-old Ohio woman given birth to triplets, but they’re her own granddaughters.

Jaci Dalenberg, of Wooster, Ohio, carried the babies as a surrogate for her daughter, Kim Coseno.

The set of identical twins and their sister were born by Caesarean section Oct. 11 at the Cleveland Clinic’s Hillcrest Hospital in Mayfield Heights and are still in the hospital’s care. They were more than two months premature and each weighed less than three pounds.

A Cleveland Clinic news release says infants and grandmother are all doing well.

According to a Clinic spokesman, Jaci offered herself as a surrogate when Kim Coseno and her husband, Joe, were waiting to adopt. The couple used in vitro fertilization, and embryos were implanted in Dalenberg’s uterus.

It seems to be a growing trend for grandmothers to carry their daughter’s babies. We have seen this situation (with less babies) a few times over the last few years.
