Nancy Hauck: Utah mom, 56, pregnant with her son's baby, calls it 'the most beautiful thing'
UTAH: A Utah mother is carrying her son's baby. Yes, you read it right. Nancy Hauck, 56, has volunteered to carry her son Jeff, 32, and his wife Cambria's fifth child. According to reports, Nancy is carrying the couple's girl child. Jeff and Cambria, 30, already have four children, two sets of twins, but now want to add another child to their family.
According to People, Cambria is unable to carry a baby because she had undergone a life-saving hysterectomy. Nancy was initially very concerned if she would be able to get pregnant and carry the child considering her age, but the doctors gave her the green signal and so she decided to act as soon as possible before she hit menopause. "I told my son, and he teared up and was shocked — I hadn't even told my husband at that point. But he was really supportive," she said.
It has been 26 years since Nancy had last gotten pregnant, according to TMZ. The grandma, who is now a surrogate, said that she never imagined she would be pregnant at the age of 56 and called it "the most beautiful thing".
Nancy's son Jeff explained how he and his wife Cambria have been experiencing infertility for over four years. His wife Cambria had to get a life-saving hysterectomy. Now, Jeff is as equally excited as the rest of his family and said that he is grateful to his selfless and loving mother and is taken aback by her gesture to make such kind of sacrifice for his family.
"I felt grateful to have such a selfless and loving mom that was willing to make that kind of sacrifice for my family," Jeff told SWNS, adding, "Having experienced over four years of infertility treatments, I knew how complicated the process can be and doubted that it was possible for her to carry a baby for us, but I was very moved that she would even offer." Nancy added, "I never imagined I would be pregnant at 56 or that this would be possible, but it is the most beautiful thing,"
The family started the hormone treatment in January 2022 and had the fertilized embryo transferred at a clinic in February. The family soon awaits their baby girl.
