Oh, baby! Greensboro mom delivers first child at 50
GREENSBORO, NC (WFMY) — A Greensboro woman became a first-time mom at 50! Even more incredible, her husband is 61!
Susie and Tony Troxler shared their decades-long fertility journey and the miracle birth of their baby girl. Dr. Susie Troxler said her baby journey started soon after she married her husband Tony in 2008.
“We got married later in life, obviously, and we just assumed we would get pregnant like most people,” Susie Troxler said. “One year turned into two, then three, but when it got to be nine, 10, 11 years, we were like, something is up, and I’m not sure what it is.”
Susie Troxler is a psychologist in Greensboro and her husband Tony Troxler works at Cone Health. The successful couple had dreams of becoming parents, but a mountain of health hurdles put their baby dreams on hold.
“I had a boatload of uterine fibroids. I was too old, and Tony had some medical issues, so, between the two of us, there was not going to be a baby,” Susie Troxler said.
Their ages became the elephant in the room at most health appointments.
