A woman in the US state of Tennessee gave birth to a girl conceived in a test tube a record 24 years ago.

The previous record was set in 2010, when the couple had a child conceived in a test tube 20 years ago.

According to the channel, a healthy girl, who was named Emma, ​​was born to Tina and Benjamin Gibson on November 25th. The embryo, which was placed in the woman’s womb using a special procedure, has been frozen since October 14, 1992.

The girl's parents were very surprised when the doctor told them the exact age of the embryo. At the time of the operation, Tina Gibson was 25 years old, so formally she is only a year older than her daughter.

The couple decided on such a procedure because of the infertility of Benjamin as a result of the disease.

Tina told the TV channel that she just really wanted a child. “And I don’t care if it’s a world record or not,” she said.
