In Puerto Rico, a healthy baby was born that was carried to term by her grandmother.

Grandma gives birth to daughter's daughter

PITTSBURGH, Dec. 21 (UPI) -- A 51-year-old woman has given birth to her granddaughter through in vitro fertilization because her daughter was born without a uterus.

Edna Rivera-Vargas gave birth Dec. 5 in Puerto Rico to Isabella Mia, the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review reports.

Rivera-Vargas' daughter, Maryli Vargas, can still produce eggs, which was inseminated by her Maryli's husband and then put into Rivera-Vargas, who said she was just happy she could help her daughter.

Rivera-Vargas commutes from Puerto Rico to Pittsburgh where she lives and works part-time.

The baby is healthy at five pounds, four ounces, and looks like her dad.

Rivera-Vargas gave birth with no complications.

I think this is going to be a bit difficult to explain to the girl as she gets a little older

I think that is pretty cool for grandma to do that though. I'd imagine a pregnancy at 51 isn't easy.

Its bizarre, but dont forget, some people will do anything to have a baby, and who better than grandma?

Ever been to Kentucky?

(No disrespect meant for people from Kentucky) Just ask Jeff Foxworthy

It's nice that the grandmother would do this for her daughter. What about when the child gets older and wants to know where she came from? I bet that won't be an easy conversation to have.
