Just when you thought the world couldn’t get any weirder, comes the story of the mother who is carrying a child for her son. Or, more accurately, her own grandchild.
But while some may call it strange, others will call it love. And few things beat a mother’s love for her children.
Nancy Hauck, 56, is proving this after offering to be a surrogate for her son, Jeff Hauck, 32, and his wife, Cambria, 30. The daughter-in-law can no longer have children, after the traumatic birth of twins resulted in a hysterectomy.
The couple actually had a pair of twins, the second of which came via IVF. But they continued to want to expand their family.
“I never planned for it, but I had this feeling not long after Cambria’s traumatic birth that I should carry their baby,” Nancy said, via Wales Online. “I told them I was willing but that I thought I would be old.”

Doctors ran some tests, and told her differently.
“But to my surprise medics said I was healthy and could do it and here I am. The pregnancy has been very similar to carrying my son, but I’ve been a bit more nauseous.
“My husband and Jeff and Cambria have been amazing throughout the pregnancy. I feel very powerful carrying my son’s daughter.”
Needless to say, the couple is honored she agreed to be a surrogate.
“It is so humbling that Nancy is doing this for us. “She is sacrificing so much for us, and our family and we just feel so grateful.
“It has been so miraculous and beautiful to watch Nancy carry our sweet baby girl,” Cambria said. “She has been nothing short of amazing and filled with so much light and grace.
“They say pregnancy comes with a glow, but Nancy’s is a full-on lighthouse.”
Jeff was equally honored.
“The entire journey has left me in awe. I’m in awe of my mom — her kindness, love, strength, attitude, wisdom, and dedication through this experience has been humbling and beautiful to witness,” he said.
So far, the pregnancy has gone smoothly.
“None of us thought it would be possible because of my age,” Nancy said.
