Tracey Thompson from North Texas has given birth to her own granddaughter after serving as a surrogate for her daughter, Kelley McKissack, 28.
The 54-year-old delivered a 6-pound 11-ounce girl at The Medical Center of Plano. Doctors at the hospital say Kelley and her husband, Aaron McKissack, had undergone multiple infertility treatments only to suffer three miscarriages.According to a hospital statement released on Thursday, the Wylie, Texas, couple had four fertilized embryos left, so Tracey Thompson offered to be a surrogate, despite being seven years past menopause. The embryos were implanted in Thompson’s womb last April.
The McKissacks named the child Kelcey, a combination of the mother’s and grandmother’s names. Grandmother and child are doing well.
