Baby Girl Born From 27-Year-Old Frozen Embryo Breaks World Record

A Tennessee couple, Tina and Ben Gibson, who spent years praying for a baby now have two miracle babies.

The family struggled with infertility for nearly five years before Tina’s parents saw a story about embryo adoption on a local news station.

Gibson, an elementary school teacher and her husband, a 36-year-old cyber security analyst, connected with the National Embryo Donation Center (NEDC), a Christian non-profit in Knoxville that stores frozen embryos that in vitro fertilisation patients decided not to use and chose to donate instead.

Families like the Gibsons can then adopt one of the unused embryos and give birth to a child that is not genetically related to them.

The Gibsons’ most recent child was born October 26, thanks to an embryo adoption that’s put little Molly Everette Gibson into the world record books.

Molly breaks the record of her older sister, Emma Wren Gibson, who was born in 2017 after a similar process of transferring a thawed then 24-year-old donated embryo for Tina to carry. Molly and Emma are genetic siblings.

According to the National Embryo Donation Center and research staff at the University of Tennessee Preston Medical Library, Molly’s embryo dates back to 1992. It was frozen for 27 years – setting the new known record for the longest-frozen embryo to ever come to birth.
