In the latest episode of “Why you should never underestimate the power of the female bod,” Annegret Raunigk is set to give birth to quadruplets at age 65, making her the oldest woman to ever do so. The Berlin teacher’s superwomb has already given birth to 13 children, all by different baby daddies. She also has seven grandkids, making her the busiest knitter in town. This latest pregnancy is the result of artificial insemination.


Ageist haters can take a seat. Raunigk defends her choice to make babies in her older years and told The Daily Mail, “I think one needs to decide for oneself and not listen too much to the opinions of others.” This is true. If Betsey Johnson can still do perfect cartwheels at 72, age is truly nothing but a number. Naturally, Raunigk’s story will be filmed for a documentary.

“The female bod” didn't exactly make this one happen by itself. I hope everyone comes out of this reasonably healthy and well. Feminism shouldn't mean we have to applaud medically risky choices.
