A 101 year old woman called Anatolia Vertadella, gave birth to a 9-pound baby after a controversial ovary transplant. Because of her age, this translplant was widely criticized by medical professionals.

Every day around the world many children are born unwanted or by accident. On the other hand this child will have a loving home.
An anonymous father
This woman’s husband has been dead for long time. Namely her husband passed away in 1998. That is why they found a sperm donor and make the birth possible.
Anatolia went on-line and found the father of her child. According to her the father of her child is a 26-year-old man. He is Catholic and that is all that she cares about. She wanted her kid to be in a union sanctified by the Catholic church.
The father of the child, however will not play a part in the kid’s life. In addition you should know that this woman wrote to the pope to ask his absolution. She believes that the pope will find a place in his heart to forgive her and in his honor she named her child after him.
She sais that she is still 100% faithfull to her deceased husband, she only needed and used the seed of this young fervent Catholic to fulfill God’s will.
She is not the only woman that gave birth in very old age
Before Anatolia gave birth the oldest woman that gave birth was Malegwale Ramokgopa. She was born in South Africa in 1839 and she gave birth to twins three days after celebrating her 92nd birthday on October 3, 1931.
