Gretna Grandmother carries healthy baby girl for her son and husband

Dougherty's sister was the egg donor, and after doctors used Eledge's sperm to fertilize the egg, the embryo was implanted.

The couple, who Wednesday in 2015, had received offers to help from both Dougherty's 26-year-old sister and Eledge's then-60-year-old mother.

A woman in the United States has given birth to her granddaughter after carrying the baby for her gay son and his husband.

On March 25, Cecile Eledge gave birth to Uma Louise, who weighed 5 pounds, 13 ounces, at Nebraska Medical Center with no complications.

"Nebraska is a bit more conservative, and we were hesitant to go into agencies, and had a bit of fear that maybe some things would hold us back as a gay couple", Matthew said.

Welcome to the world, Uma Louise Dougherty-Eledge.

Her son explained that paying for a surrogate would have been hard on him and his husband's salaries, adding that that route seemed "too corporate" to them anyway. Cecile Eledge said. What followed was a lengthy and scientific process to determine if she could carry the baby.

"My mom has always taken care of me, we have the joke that I'm the baby of the family and she does everything for me and we've taken it to a new level", Matthew Eledge said. Her son and his husband, who are Uma's dads, were in the delivery room during the birth.

"We had to be convinced by the medical doctors that she was in great shape and she was fully capable of doing this", Matthew Eledge said. "For the time being, we're just going to relax and enjoy this moment".

With her age a consideration, Cecile underwent several tests before doctors determined her high-level of physical health made her a candidate to serve as a gestational surrogate.

"I can't believe I've only known you for a week".

"I'm grateful it's not her first name, but her middle name", said Cecile Eledge.

When her son Matthew Eledge and his husband Elliot Dougherty wanted to expand their family, she volunteered.
