The pregnancy has so far proceeded normally and confinement is expected this summer. If all goes well, she will be the oldest woman in the world who give birth to quadruplets.
The language teacher says to the TV station RTL that she decided to try to have more children because her youngest daughter, who is nine years old, wanted a little brother or sister. The German 65-year-old became pregnant after being artificially fertilized at a foreign clinic.
The woman, who in addition to her 13 children also has seven grandchildren, admits it was a shock to learn that she was pregnant with quadruplets. But it was never an option to go through fetal reduction, she says to the German newspaper Bild.
The article photo is an archive photo of the then 55 years old Annegret Raunigk with the youngest of her 13 children, her daughter Leila, in Berlin in 2005. Now, ten years later she is again pregnant and expecting quadruplets.
