You will remember the day you become a parent for the rest of your life. A special little person who depends on you has just been welcomed into the world. It’s your responsibility to provide the ideal surroundings for them and aid in their dream fulfillment.
Adriana Iliescu made international news in 2005 when she gave birth to her first child. The cause? She had a 66-year-old age.
Adriana experienced utter joy when giving birth to her daughter Eliza.
After 17 years, the elderly mother is once again in the public eye as a result of some highly publicized new photos of her daughter.
There are those days that can completely alter a person’s life. Everyone who has ever been a parent will undoubtedly concur that it is impossible to describe the moment you receive your child.
The nicest feeling in the world is when you first see that adorable youngster glance up at you.
Some people are immortalized in history books from the moment of birth.
Eliza Iliescu experienced just that when she was born in Romania in 2005. The girl’s mother made history because of her.
Adriana Iliescu became the oldest mother in the world at the age of 66. For obvious reasons, Eliza’s birth made headlines, and Adriana was given a place in the Guinness Book of World Records for it.
Because she had received harsh criticism after becoming a mother, Adriana talked about her experiences and opened up about parenthood in 2010. She was viewed as selfish and overly old by the public.
“The mirror is cruel to women, but if you judge me by my vitality, I’d say I’m a young lady. When I’m a little more exhausted, I feel like I’m 37, yet I just feel like I’m 27. I am in better health than women twice my age,” she told Daily Mail.
“People think it’s humorous to refer to me as ‘grandma,’ but Eliza wasn’t there to make me appear younger. I don’t ever feel my age.”
Adriana, who was 71 at the time, also disclosed that she intended to have another child during her interview.
She said, “Medically, it’s doable. It could be done, since I understand experiments with a 70-year-old woman are currently taking place in England. I am in good health and believe that having another child in the future is conceivable, but I’m not in a rush right now.”
Like most moms and daughters, Adriana and Eliza have grown close over time. Eliza is a bubbly, witty, and incredibly content young girl.
Although many people have an opinion regarding Adriana’s age, the grandmother insists that she is an excellent mom and takes care of Eliza in every way.
“I don’t consume alcohol or smoke. Eliza will be 20 years old when I die if I survive as long as my parents did,” Adriana says, “I believe I still have a lot to offer her.
Adriana did not choose to have children at such a late age. Adriana Iliescu had to have an abortion when she was a young bride for medical reasons. Her husband left her when she was 24.
Adriana then concentrated on other aspects of her life and her work as a professor at a university in Romania.
“While I was working, I couldn’t even consider having a child, she said, adding that “but from the age of 37, once I had finished my doctorate, I was ready to have a child.” However, IVF did not exist back then.”
When in-vitro fertilization became a possibility in Romania, Adriana was 57 years old. Despite receiving treatment, Adriana’s first pregnancy in 2000 ended in miscarriage.
Her desire to become a mother caused people to turn their backs on her. They believed Adriana was acting immorally, but she never gave up and remained steadfast in her desire to become a mother.
After seeking therapy from Dr. Bogdan Marinescu in Bucharest, Eliza was eventually born. In reality, Adriana was expecting triplets, but only Eliza made it out alive after two of the other children passed away in the womb. She unfortunately spent a lot of time in the NICU due to her preterm birth.
But soon, she had developed into a resilient young girl, and Adriana, who was extremely religious, wanted to baptize her daughter. Unfortunately, a few religious groups were against Adriana having a child at such an advanced age. Adriana received strange looks from the nuns at Eliza’s baptism, and one even referred to her as “the product of dark energy.”
Eliza, according to Adriana, is a gift from God.
It has been 17 years since Adriana gave birth to her first child in 2022. Despite the fact that Adriana is frequently mistaken for Eliza’s grandma, they are now enjoying a great time together.
The seasoned mother, however, still feels fantastic both physically and mentally. She has a lot of love to give, and that’s what you need to raise a child.
Adriana is still writing at the age of 83. She has written more than 25 novels for kids and claims to be in good health. Despite appearing to be a great-grandmother, she continues to work in Bucharest as a part-time lecturer.
Additionally, Adriana has made certain that Eliza’s future is in capable hands.
Adriana struck a deal with the doctor when she decided to use IVF. If Adriana dies, he will serve as the girl’s godfather and legal guardian.
Eliza, who is 17 years old, wants to study and go to college, but Adriana wants to keep her family’s personal life quiet for the time being. Eliza, according to Brightside, is an honor roll student who carries on her mother’s scholastic legacy.
