55-Year Woman Breaks British Record With Birth of Her Triplets

55-Year Woman Breaks British Record With Birth of Her Triplets

Britain’s oldest mother of triplets has given birth to three healthy babies at the age of 55.

Sharon Cutts and boyfriend Stuart Reynolds, 40, welcomed sons Mason and Ryan and daughter Lily into their family on March 21.

Ms Cutts, who has four grown-up children from a previous relationship, said she does not care that the babies are younger than her grandchildren.

When the couple met four years ago, childless Stuart wanted to start a family. But Sharon had started the menopause.

Her only option was IVF, where an egg is removed from another woman’s ovaries and fertilised with Stuart’s sperm in a lab.

In the UK the NHS will only provide the process up to the age of 42, so the couple turned to a private London clinic .

They then flew to Cyprus for a third procedure, which was a success.

Thrilled Sharon and boyfriend Stuart Reynolds, who is 15 years her junior, have been celebrating the birth of sons Mason and Ryan, and daughter Lily.

She had spent £15,000 of loans on IVF to have a child with factory worker Stuart — who she met on a dating website.

The pregnancy was fraught with problems and doctors advised one of the babies should be aborted due to the dangers of pregnancy at that age.

Ms Cutts refused and the triplets were born by Caesarean section, after an 11-week stay in Nottingham University Hospital. They each weighed between 4lbs and 5lbs.

She also revealed she gave herself Botox injections and fresh hair extensions in hospital before going into labour.
