New mom welcomes twins at age 60


EVANSVILLE, IN (WFIE) Last year, Claudette Cook and her husband decided to start a family, but they knew they’d have to deal with a few bumps in the road.

Now, she’s a mother for the first time, after her 60th birthday.

“Isaiah came out first, and Isaac came out second,” said Claudette Cook.

Claudette beat all the odds, giving birth to fraternal twins Sunday night.

“I cried. I was like, you know, you look at TV and you see other people in the delivery room and you’re like, oh my goodness. And, it was me. So, joy, it was so sweet,” Claudette told us while holding her husband, Ross’s hand. “Everything changed in that moment. Once they’re born, your life changes.”

Isaac and Isaiah were born on Sunday night, each five pounds, almost a month before Claudette’s due date.

“Age is but a number with God. Plus, I was healthy and in shape. I was like, yes, I know I can do this-I know I can.  No matter how hard it was, He brought me through it all, so, awesome God,” Claudette said.
