In 2004, everyone was talking about Aleta St. James. At that time, she was recognized as the oldest mother in the United States.
Aleta gave birth to twins at the age of 57.
It’s known that it’s very risky for both a woman and the child to have children at an advanced age.
However, nowadays, more and more women choose to give birth after 40 or even 50 years.
Aleta St. James had never thought about marriage or motherhood.
First, she had to attend acting school and then pursue a career in show business. It would have been very challenging to combine all of that with raising children.
After concluding her work in show business, Aleta decided to delve into spiritual practice and healing.
Time passed swiftly, and one day, she realized she was already 50 years old.
At that age, she wanted to become a mother. Many friends advised her to abandon her intention of having a child.
They told her she might suffer herself or spend her entire life raising a sick child. Some said she was completely crazy.
But Aleta didn’t want to listen to anyone.
She spent several years trying to conceive and succeeded at the age of 57, experiencing the joy of motherhood.
Aleta gave birth to twins, a girl and a boy.
The family lived in New York. 17 years have passed since then.
In that time, Aleta St. James managed to overcome various challenges as she raised her children on her own.
Currently, Aleta is 73 years old, and Francesca and Gian have almost reached adulthood.
She is full of strength and energy, continuing to spend time with her children, work, and enjoy life.
