Sixty-Year-Old Woman Gives Birth to Twins

I've been following late in life motherhood for several years now, but I still get surprised by stories like this one.
Sixty years old.
The mother of twin boys.
I'm exhausted just thinking about it!
The mom, who is believed to be the oldest woman to give birth to multiples in the U.S., also has sons ages 6 and 33 and a daughter age 29.
According to the Associated Press article, she said she wanted her younger son to have siblings close to his age and wanted to remove some of the stigma attached to older woman having babies.
News like this is always a hot topic, with people weighing in on the "Should She/Shouldn't She" Debate. (Reality is, she did!)
So what do you think?

Whatever she should or shouldn't have done, she definitely should receive a gold medal.

Admittedly, I am biased, but I think all mothers deserve a medal of some sort. (7 1/2 hours of un-medicated labor...)

I see that smile (to borrow your quote.)
