World's Oldest Mom: Just How Old Is She?

Turns out, Carmela Bousada, the World's Oldest Mom lied about her age.
Yes, she really is 67 years old, which makes her the world's oldest mom.
But, to earn that title, Bousada lied.
She told a British newspaper that she lied to a U.S. fertility clinic and said she was 55 years old so that she would get treatment. The clinic's cut off age for treating single women is 55. Bousada said the clinic did not ask her for identification.
"I think everyone should become a mother at the right time for them," Bousada said in an interview with the Associated Press.
"...(M)aybe things shouldn't have been done in the way they were done but that was the only way to achieve the thing I had always dreamed of..." Bousada said."

People will stop at nothing to make their dreams come true. I hate the fact that some lie to do it though.

good for her she's not hurting anyone and I know a lot of younger moms that should have their tubes tied.
