A 48-year-old grandmother has given birth to her grandson after her daughter was unable to conceive with her partner Tyler due to suffering with a uterus condition.
Megan Baker, 48, carried the baby son for her daughter Maddie Coleman and her husband Tyler Coleman after Maddie was told she wouldn’t be able to have children because she was diagnosed with Mayer-Rokitansky-Küster-Hauser – a condition that causes the uterus to be underdeveloped – aged 14.
And nine years on from her diagnosis Maddie had to have her right ovary removed, which ruled out children completely.
However, her mother decided to step in to help at her daughter’s time of need, and in February 2016, doctors planted two eggs inside of Megan combined with Tyler’s sperm.
Just one month later, on the day before the pair’s wedding, her mother broke the news that she was carrying their child.
Speaking about her reaction to the news, Maddie told InsideEdition.com: “I cried. I was very grateful. I was super emotional. For me to be able to have a biological child filled that void that I felt like I was missing. My mom is my best friend. I can’t imagine anyone else doing this for us.”
Maddie’s son Gus was born on October 22 2016.
