Meet a brave woman named Galina Shubenina, who did what seemed impossible. She became a mother at 60.
4 years ago, she and her second husband decided to get pregnant and experience the joy of motherhood again. With her number, she surprised everyone around.
Despite the fears of doctors, a healthy girl was born, who received the name Cleopatra. She became a real joy for her parents and her grandfather on her father’s side.
She is now 4 years old and her interests are different: from her passion for chess to ice skating.
Galina had a son who died in tragic circumstances. It was difficult for the mother to cope with the loss.
When she met her husband, who is several years younger than her, she wanted to be a mother again. Husband Alexei supported his beloved wife and handled the issue quite wisely.
After knowing the opinion of the doctors, the couple decided to try their luck. They were warned of the possible difficulties with the mother and the little one.
The fact is that the body of an elderly woman may not be able to cope with such a difficult task as pregnancy.
It is no longer a young body and complications are quite possible. It’s also risky for a little one. There is a risk at birth and in its later development.
However, Galina and Alexei have already made a decision.
After 9 months, a healthy girl was born, who later proved to have no developmental problems.
How is Cleopatra today?
This little queen behaves appropriately. As noted by her mother and others, the girl is intelligent and reasonable beyond her years.
Sometimes it seems like she thinks like an adult. This is evidenced by his hobbies. Cleopatra is already studying English and sometimes communicates with tourists in their language.
As for those who look askance at Galina and the little girl who calls the wrinkled woman mom, they are ambivalent about Galina’s story. Some look at her like crazy, others sincerely admire her courage.
