Grandma, 56, Reveals She’s Pregnant With Her Own Son’s Child

The grandma will be due on November 5.

At 56, Grandma Nancy Hauck will give birth to her own grandchild. She volunteered to carry her 32-Year-Old son Jeff and his wife Cambria’s 5th child, serving as a surrogate. The pair, already parents to twins Vera and Ayva, 3, and 11-month-old siblings Diseal and Luka, struggled with infertility for years before they could conceive

Though the couple hoped to have a 5th, Cambria’s hysterectomy after the birth of her twins [pictured] left them with very few options.

And that’s when Nancy [pictured below] stepped in. She explained“They’ve had lots of struggles with infertility but they had seven embryos to try with IVF and decided they wanted to use them all. Cambria could no longer carry her own children. And I just had a feeling a few months after that I should offer to do it.”

It’s been 26years since the grandma was the last pregnant.

She added: “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.” None of the family had thought it would be possible due to her age, but to their surprise, medics said Nancy was healthy and should go ahead with the surrogacy.

Notably, Nancy has previously had five healthy children with no complications.

“The pregnancy has been very similar to carrying my son but I’ve been a bit more nauseous. I feel very powerful carrying my son’s daughter,” the gradnma said of her fertility examination: “The doctor said I might be able to a carrier and asked if I wanted to come in for an exam to see if I was viable.”

“I was shocked it might actually be an option but still very willing to do it for my son.”

The examination, as per DailyMail, showed that Nancy was indeed a viable career, but they likely needed to act quickly before she went into menopause. She started her hormone treatment in January 2022, injecting herself daily for twelve weeks with the help of her husband, Jason, 59, an optometrist.

The fertilized embryo was then transferred into her uterus a month later.

Nancy continued: “It was a bit scary as it had been 26 years since I’d had a baby. I had a feeling just before the blood test that it had worked, and I did a test, and it was positive. They were over the moon when we found out for certain I was pregnant. This has all been a big leap of faith. It’s remarkable and a beautiful thing to do. I think this is quite a rare thing to do.”

Cambria has been going to every appointment with Nancy. The family had been ecstatic to find out they were expecting a girl in May 2022.

“It is so humbling that Nancy is doing this for us. She is sacrificing so much for us and our family, and we just feel so grateful. It has been so miraculous and beautiful to watch Nancy carry our sweet baby girl. She has been nothing short of amazing and filled with so much light and grace. They say pregnancy comes with a glow, but Nancy’s is a full-on lighthouse,” Cambria said of her Mother-In-Law.

Nancy’s son Jeff, a computer scientist, also expressed: “I felt grateful to have such a selfless and loving mom [who] was willing to make that kind of sacrifice for my family. 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 carrier a baby for us – but I was very moved that she would even offer.”

He added he’s in awe of his mom’s kindness, love, strength, attitude, wisdom, and dedication throughout this experience.

“Being a dad has always been my dream; I adore each of my kids and take my role and responsibility as their dad very seriously. The opportunity to be the dad to another beautiful baby girl is the greatest gift and blessing I could receive. There is no repayment for something like that – all I can do is follow the example my parents have set and try to give that same level of love and devotion to my own family and to others.”
