65-year-old mom of 13 pregnant again with quadruplets

Raunigk is no stranger to the media spotlight for being a mom who's giving birth later in life.  A decade ago, she made headlines when she gave birth to her 13th child at the age of 55.  Her daughter had been conceived naturally, without fertility treatments.

This time however, Raunigk did use fertility treatments after her youngest daughter, Lelia, asked for a brother or sister closer to her age, according to NBC News

She has 12 other siblings from the age of 22 to 44, The Daily Mail reported.

Raunigk is expected to give birth later this summer.  So far there have been no complications during the pregnancy, ITV news reported.

The oldest woman on record in the US to give birth is Merryl Fudel, who was 55.  A woman who was believed to be 70 was the oldest woman to give birth according to The Daily Mail.

Editor's note: A previous version of this story incorrectly listed the woman's age as 63. She is 65, according to media reports.
