A 51-year-old woman who served as the gestational carrier for her daughter and son-in-law gave birth to her granddaughter.
Julie Loving, 51, delivered a healthy baby girl in an Illinois hospital on Nov. 2 with her daughter, Breanna Lockwood, by her side.
The newborn, named Briar Juliette Lockwood, is the first child for Lockwood and her husband, Aaron, who are the baby’s biological parents.
“It was definitely a surreal process,” Lockwood told “Good Morning America” about Briar’s birth. “All the feelings came at once, just watching my mom go through everything and all she’s done for me and is continuing to do.”
