72 year old, Adriana Iliescu, mum of a six year old wants another babyA 72-year old woman who caused world-wide outrage when she gave bith to a daughter at 66, has revealed she is planning to have another baby.

Romanian university lecturer Adriana Iliescu has told Spanish media that she is desperate for another child, and hopes to be blessed with a son to 'support' and 'protect' her:

'I have thought of having another child soon. It would make me very happy to have a son. In 15 years he and Eliza could take me for a walk through the neighborhood.'

'It could be a son if God and the doctors want,' she added, 'He would act as a support, who would protect me.'

Ms Iliescu conceived her daughter Eliza via IVF in 2005, making her the world's oldest mother at the time.

Carmen Bousada subsequently stole her crown, becoming the world's oldest mum in 2006 after giving birth to twins at the age of 67. She later died of cancer, leaving the tots in the care of her cousins.

In 2008, another oldest mother contender stepped forward in the shape of Rajo Devi Lohan who gave birth to a daughter in India at the ripe old age of 70.
