A healthy grandmother gave birth to her own grandchild after her daughter suffered years of devastating losses.
29-year-old Breanna Lockwood and husband Aaron, 28, tried everything including IVF for four years but because she has a health condition and went through a range of surgeries, it was difficult for her to conceive.
That’s when Breanna’s healthy and fit mother decided to step in.
Julie, 51, offered to become the couple’s surrogate and on November 2, she gave birth to her own granddaughter Briar Juliette Lockwood.
Breanna shared the amazing news on Instagram, writing that their little angel ‘has filled our hearts with so much joy.’
“My mom was an absolute rockstar through a difficult delivery. The sacrifices she took to bring this little slice of heaven into our world takes my breath away.
“Holding my daughter in my arms my heart is bursting. The feeling of how I would do absolutely anything needed for this child is radiating through me when I look at her, and reflects back on what my mom did for me,” she wrote.
“Every move and decision I make for my daughter, I’m finding the answers through how my mom raised me. The way she loves and the selflessness she exudes is pure, genuine and kind.
“My mom Julie, and baby Briar are doing fantastic and healthy! I have SO MUCH to share on our birth experience, but right now my husband and I are soaking up these newborn moments!”
In an interview with Good Morning America earlier this year, Julie said she was the one who suggested to become her daughter’s surrogate.
“I started to talk to her about it. She was not on board and thought I was crazy, but I just kept pursuing it,” she shared.
“I’ve run 19 marathons and done many triathlons. I felt like health-wise I could do it and I had really easy pregnancies with my two kids.”
Breanna and Aaron are over the moon with baby Briar’s arrival.
In a recent Instagram post, she shared a photo of her baby, writing: “Just living in new mama bliss!”
