Scientifically, menopause is defined as the stoping of the menstrual cycle for women and most women reach this milestone between their late 40s and 50s with an average age of around 51 years old, according to Healthline. Therefore, it is entirely possible to get pregnant at 50 years old even, as long as, you’ve not reached your menopause.
If one would like to get pregnant above the menopausal age, then various other invasive methods must be used such as in vitro fertilisation (IVF) and hormone therapy. Following this, a Mexican artist, Lyn May has announced that she’s officially pregnant at the age of 68!
She’s currently in her third month of pregnancy with her partner, musician, Marcos D1 who’s 29 years old. This exciting post has accumulated around 35,465 likes so far with an overwhelming support from her fans, though she has since disabled the comments section of her post. The caption reads, “I am very happy to announce that I am 3 months pregnant and @markosd1official is very happy that he will be a dad.”
Markos D1 also took to his Instagram page to share an image of himself posing with Lyn May with a hashtag of 2019, indicating the year the couple met and embarked on this relationship. Well, that’s not all!
If May manages to give birth to the child, she would be breaking into the Guinness World Record of the oldest woman to have given birth. The last title holder was Maria del Carmen Bousada Lara who gave birth to twin boys, Christian and Pau, by Caesarean section in Barcelona, Spain, at the age of 66 years and 358 days. Unfortunately, she passed away 3 years later in 2009.
May, whose real name is Lilia Mendiola de Chi was previously married to Antonio Chi-Xuo from 1989 until his death in 2008. The same year of his death, May married Guillermo Calderon Stell.
Nevertheless, let’s hope for May’s safe delivery and for her to be able to cherish her life with her child. It could be seen that there are some negative comments by some netizens about conceiving at her age. These people should definitely mind their own business and stop dictating what a woman does in her life!
