A 66-year-old plastics company manager in Newmarket, England, is in the media spotlight since announcing that she will soon become Britain's oldest mother. The Daily Mail and The Sun both have stories about Elizabeth Adeney -- the Daily Mail also has a photo. But the Sunday Mirror scoops them all, with what it calls an exclusive interview with the soon-to-be mom. "It doesn't interest me that I'm going to be the oldest mum in the country. It's not my physical age that is important -- it's how I feel inside. Some days, I feel 39. Other days, I feel 56," she told the newspaper. The story claims she single-handedly runs a successful plastics fastening company. While 66 is a pretty advanced age to become a mom, it apparently is not the record. According to several stories, a woman in India last year gave birth to twins at age 70. Expect to see Adeney in the news more frequently -- with more mentions of her plastics industry connection -- as her due date approaches next month.
