She has given a few interviews and personally I think she is ridiculous. Her own daughter (aged 29) said flat out that she was NOT happy about this at all and still doesn't support her mother's decision.
This woman's other children will be raising these kids because she may possibly die before they even turn 18. And just because we are living longer doesn't mean we need to be having children at 60! If we were supposed to be having children that old then women all over the world would naturally get pregnant with their own eggs and without medically intervention in their 60's. She's an ignorant woman.
The avergage life expectancy in the United States for females is 79 years old. If she lives to be 79 her younger children will be 25 and 19. And who is to say that even if she does live to be 79 that she will be mentally and physically able to mother these children? She is selfish and her whole defense about "empowerment" is idiotic. My heart hurts for all of her children.
Oh and BTW I don't blame her daughter one bit! My mom is almost 50 and if she planned to get pregnant again I would be pissed. My mom has kids in their mid to late 20’s and she is going to be a grandma in 3 months so why the hell would she need more children. She had 2 more kids when she was 35 and 38 and she is too tired to really do much with them and they haven’t even hit their teens yet. I can’t imagine her with a newborn.
Maybe I am just a snob, but I am still an advocate for having children in your 20’s and 30’s when you are still in your prime.
