After a 26-week pregnancy that was widely criticized by medical professionals because of her age, a 65-year-old German woman has had quadruplets. German television reported that the three boys and one girl were born on Tuesday, making Annegret R.,a 65-year-old teacher from Berlin,the world's oldest mother of quadruplets.

Annegret Raunigk gave birth to a girl — Neeta — and three boys — Dries, Bence and Fjonn — by cesarean section at a Berlin hospital Tuesday, RTL said. The babies weigh between 655 grams and 960 grams (1.5-2.1 pounds) and measure 30-35 centimeters (roughly a foot).

A spokeswoman for RTL said the babies stood a strong chance of survival but possible complications couldn't yet be ruled out, because they were born in the 26th week of pregnancy. Their mother was doing well, the spokeswoman said.

"Ms. Raunigk basically has no medical risk anymore," Heike Speda told The Associated Press. She said the woman had signed a contract granting RTL exclusive access in return for an undisclosed sum.

Raunigk already had 13 children ranging in age from 9 to 44, from five fathers. She told Germany's Bild newspaper last month that she decided to become pregnant again because her 9-year-old daughter wanted a younger sibling. She also has seven grandchildren.

Annegret R. went to Ukraine for implantation with an egg and artificial insemination— a procedure that is illegal in Germany. She'd already had 13 children and seven grandchildren. She said her previously youngest daughter - Lelia, now 10 - had requested a new sibling.
