These are some of the most incredible and unusual mothers on the planet. Motherhood is one of the most incredible gifts of the nature. It gives birth to unconditional love and innocence. You have to experience it to believe it. These unusual women (whether they are too old, have small babies or too many babies) are unique in every way. They didn’t give up their chance to have happy and healthy babies, against all odds. See for yourselves.
1. The World’s Smallest Mom
Cristianne Ray, from Seattle, is the world’s smallest mother. She is 2 ft 9 inches tall and she gave birth to a happy baby girl named Kyrsten. She weighed 4 lbs 8 oz and was 14 inches long after she was born; what is around half of her mother’s height. When she saw her daughter for the first time, she said: “She was tiny, but at the same time she was huge compared to me.” She tries to lead a happy and healthy life; she goes bowling trying to keep fit and takes care of her newborn baby. Her fiancée Jeremy Bowden is 6 ft 4 inches tall and he takes care of the fragile baby and her mother.
2. Mother of the World’s Tiniest baby
The world’s tinniest baby was born just 25 weeks and six days into her mother’s pregnancy. She weighed less than a can of beer. On September 19 2004, Mahajabeen Sheikh gave birth to Rumaisa Rahman, her tinny adorable daughter. On her first birthday Rumaisa Rahman was doing just fine tipping the scales at 2 pounds 10 ounces since she was just 8.6 oz and was only 10 inches tall.
3. The Mom with Most Kids (69 kids)
Imagine living in a family of 71, your mom either must really like giving birth or the gift of life if you prefer or just hates being lonely. Valentina Vassilyeva, set the record for most children birthed by a single woman. This Russian woman gave birth to total of 69 children. However, few other details are known of her life, such as her date of birth or death. She gave birth to 16 pairs of twins, 7 sets of triplets and 4 sets of quadruplets between 1725 and 1765, in a total of 27 births. 67 of the 69 children born survived infancy. That’s quite a score.
4. Mom with the Longest Interval Between Kids
Elizabeth Ann Buttle gave birth to two kids, but what is special is the interval between their births. Belinda Buttle was born on May 19, 1956 when Elizabeth Ann Buttle was 19. Joseph Buttle was born on November 20, 1997 when Elizabeth Ann Buttle was 60, an interval of 41 years 185 days. Joseph’ sister was old enough to be his own grandmother.
5. Mother of Most Surviving Children From a Single Birth (8 babies)
Nadya Denise Doud-Suleman Gutierrez aka Octomom gave birth to 8 children from a single birth. She gave birth to octuplets in January 2009, drawing the media attention.
6. World’s First Male Mother
Thomas Beatie was born as a woman but after a sex change operation he/she decided to have a babie. The 34-year-old’s wife, Nancy, was unable to conceive because of a prior hysterectomy. Therefore Beatie decided to have a baby himself, through artificial insemination using donor sperm and Beatie’s own egg. It doesn’t seem to be a healthy solution in any respect.
