Grandmother gives birth to her seventh baby at the age of 51

A grandmother of five who has spent £23,000 IVF has given birth to her seventh child at the age of 51.

Kimberly Chasteen, 51, from St. Louis, Missouri, USA, gave birth to their son Tyrique Chasteen on St. Patrick’s Day, March 17, 2022.

The nurse’s assistant was just 16 when she had her first daughter Jessica, 35, in 1986 and had five other children before Tyrique: Kayla, 33, Richard, 31, Blake, 20, Briar, 19, and Balin, 17 .

Kimberly holding both an egg and sperm donor, has endured some hurtful criticism from trolls after daughter Kayla documented it pregnancy journey over tick tock, with some blowing up their decision as uncertain.

Kimberly said: “When I read some of the horrible comments, my heart ached and I cried. Kayla said she could take them off but I told her people are entitled to their own opinion and it’s just ugly and if they choose to be ugly that’s on them.

“Some of them can be quite gnarly and ugly as I know there was one person who said I would have fun chasing him around a trailer. One comment came back to it, saying, “FYI she spent $35,000 I don’t think she lives in a trailer.”

Prior to Tyrique’s birth, Kimberly went through two tubal litigation, reverse both processes. She first had her tubes tied off at 20 after welcoming her first three children, and reversed the surgery at 30 before having another three children.

At the age of 34, she underwent her second tubal legal battle, which was reversed again in 2019 after meeting a younger partner.

Although she later separated from this man, Kimberley continued to hope for a seventh child and spent the next three years conceiving.

Kimberly said: “I had a younger boyfriend and we had talked about getting married and wanting a child together. That’s why I chose the second inversion.

“The boyfriend got toxic, but I haven’t given up on the dream of having another child. It didn’t stop because the relationship was over, I just continued the journey.

“It’s been a really tough journey; I’ve spent about £23,000 ($35,000) and been through a lot. Trying to find a doctor who would sanction it even at my age was difficult.

She continued: “It’s not like anyone would give their blessing, you have to go through a whole range of things. They will need to take a full medical history of you to see if it is at all possible for you to bear a child.

“They turned my bikes off several times before we actually got to the first transfer because if there were red flags and they see something, they won’t risk it.”







Her six other children are very excited to meet Tyrique

Kimberly suffered one placental abruption at 32 weeks, after which baby Tyrique was born. Her six children are said to have been very excited to meet their new little brother.

She added, “My kids are very attached and love each other very much, they won’t say Tyrique isn’t their biological brother, they’ll say ‘he’s my brother.’

“They have a lot of love in their hearts and are really great kids. I am very happy that they have each other. I’m blessed. He’s growing every day and he’s getting stronger every day, he’s my little fighter, he’s my lucky charm. I’m looking forward to bringing him home.”
