62-year-old Spanish doctor announces she is eight months pregnant with third child

She insists that she feels like a woman half her age.

The news about a doctor in Spain currently expecting her third child would not have been shocking at all but for the fact that she is already in her sixties. But 62-year-old Lina Alvarez is super-confident and insists that she feels like a woman half her age.

The sexagenarian says that although she started menopause 20 years ago, she was able to successfully conceive after undergoing fertility treatment. She is now expecting a baby girl. The yet-to-be born baby, who has already been named Lina, is said to be developing well. “I feel like a woman in her 30s. To feel better than this is impossible,” Alvarez told local media.

Alvarez’s oldest child, now aged 27, was left disabled after suffering an injury resulting from a medical error during her pregnancy. She was left to be her son’s primary carer after her marriage broke down. Alvarez also has a 10-year-old son who was born when she was 52.

She has chosen to ignore that her unusual pregnancy has sparked controversy in Spain. “When she will be 30, I will be 90. I will be a grandmother as well as a mother and so what, the fact is that my daughter will have been brought up,” she argues.
