A 52-year-old Greek mother has given birth to her two grandsons, after getting legal permission to be a surrogate mother for her daughter and son-in-law.

The woman, who was implanted with embryos from her daughter’s fertilized eggs by her son-in-law, gave birth to twin boys in good health and weighing 2.5 kilos, gynecologist Dr Charalambos Batakis, told journalists.

In July last year a Greek court gave permission for the woman to carry out a surrogate birth because her daughter was unable to carry a pregnancy to term due to health problems.
