Age is nothing but a number for one New Hampshire teacher who recently welcomed a baby boy into the world.
Barbara Higgins, 57, gave birth to a healthy baby boy named Jack on March 20 after undergoing IVF treatment with her husband Kenny Banzhoff, according to NBC Boston.
“We’ve beat the odds,” Banzhoff, 65, told the outlet. “I’m so proud of her, she’s been a trooper through the whole thing.”
The couple’s new bundle of joy comes five years after they reportedly lost their 13-year-old daughter Molly to an undiagnosed brain tumor.
After Molly’s death, Higgins said she couldn’t stop thinking about having another child to join their surviving daughter Gracie.

After finding an IVF clinic in Boston that would treat someone Higgins’ age, the couple reportedly decided to move forward with the pregnancy.
Higgins also credited her active lifestyle for a smooth third pregnancy, sharing that she had been weightlifting up until the day she went into labor.
