Mrs. Akosua Budu Amoako, 59-year-old woman and her husband become proud parents to a baby boy after four decades of marriage. Budu gave birth to her first baby on June 15 at Bellevue Woman’s Center in Niskayuna, near Albany after fertility treatments. The full-term 7-pound, 4-ounce boy was named after his father, Isaiah Somuah Anim. According to report in Daily Mail, Budu says she and her husband started trying to have children after they married 38 years ago, but eventually stopped trying after she discovered she had a blocked fallopian tube that made natural pregnancy almost impossible. Then last year, after learning that a 60-year-old woman in the couple’s homeland of Ghana gave birth to triplets after fertility treatments, the couple, both medical professionals at a local hospital, decided to try once again to have a child. As per the reports, Dr Kushru Irani of Niskayuna’s Bellevue Women’s Center, said he tried to dissuade them from trying IVF at first. But they were very calm, determined and had clearly thought about this a long time. “We haven’t gotten much sleep, but I feel fine and I think he already knows our voices,” Budu told the Times Union. The couple, who came to the United States in 2005, are naturalized US citizens.
