Surrogate grandmother gives birth to her own grandson

CHICO (KRON) — A Chico woman has twice the reason to be happy for becoming a grandmother.

She now has a beautiful grandson and she gave birth to him herself.

On October 22, Megan Barker, gave birth to a healthy baby boy.

“It was one of the best experiences I’ve ever had in my life,” the 48-year-old grandmother tells KRCR.

Barker’s daughter, Maddie Coleman, couldn’t deliver a baby because her ovaries were at risk of tumors.

Coleman and her husband couldn’t afford a surrogate mother, which can cost as much as $75,000, so they turned to her mother.

“This was the biggest gift anybody can receive is becoming a mom and have my mom give me that gift, it’s unexplainable,” says Coleman.\
