Kelly Clarke always wanted to be a mother, but she never had good luck in love. Even so, her longing for children was still present. And at 50, she realized that she did not need a partner to have a child, so she decided to get pregnant despite her age.
Kelly erased the concept of “traditional family” when she underwent I.V.F to fulfil her dream of having a baby. She is now the mom she always wanted to be, and there is nothing that makes her feel happier.
Kelly always felt a great connection with children, which is why she knew from a very young age that she wanted to become a mother. However, she never had good luck in love, and with each passing year, her dream seemed further away.
Just when she turned 50, she realized that time was running out, so she took all her savings and traveled to Athens, Greece, to undergo an ɪɴ ᴠɪᴛʀᴏ method and thus have the baby she always wanted.
Her family did not support her at first, because they believed that being a single mother was crazy and that the baby deserved to have a traditional family. But that didn’t stop her, and she continued with her decision. 12 days after her egg was ꜰᴇʀᴛɪʟɪᴢᴇᴅ, Ella Kelly found out that she was pregnant.
“I was met with a lot of resistance from my family for deciding to become a single mother at age 50, because they were worried about me and the ɪᴍᴘʟɪᴄᴀᴛɪᴏɴs of using a donor, but at that moment I knew my decision was final and the right one,” she said.
Little Layla Rae Clarke is now seven months old and is the joy of her mother, who just turned 51. The baby arrived to change the course of Kelly’s life, and although she explained during an interview that she feels a little overwhelmed by the challenge of being a single mother, her joy and love for her little girl manage to combat any type of stress or thought.
Kelly showed that when you have a dream or a desire, it is you who must work every day to achieve it, because it is always a good time, regardless of age.
