A woman from Tennessee gave birth to a baby girl, which was conceived and frozen 24 years ago.
Tina Gibson, 26, and her husband, Benjamin, 33, have been trying to have a baby for years but failed. The embryo, which was conceived and frozen in 1992, was transferred to her uterus. It was clear that they are unlikely to conceive because of his complexity.
The embryo was transferred using a procedure similar to IVF.
Acknowledging the fact that what happened was science, Tina can’t help but express her happiness now that Emma, who is technically only a year younger than her mom.

“Do you realize I’m only 25? This embryo and I could have been best friends,” said Tina. “I just wanted a baby. I don’t care if it’s a world record or not.”
“People say, ‘oh it’s science,’ but no I think it’s a gift from the Lord. It’s a gift from the Lord, for sure,” Tina added.
