A Family Affair

In an age of human-rabbit hybrids, this came as no surprise:
    Woman gives birth to grandchild

    A Japanese woman in her 50s gave birth to her own grandchild last year, using an egg from her daughter and sperm from her son-in-law, a doctor has revealed.

    It was the first time a woman has acted as a surrogate mother for her daughter in Japan, local media reported. ...

    ... Yahiro Netsu, the head of the Suwa maternity clinic in Nagano, told a news conference that the woman gave birth last year, Reuters reported.

    She had agreed to in vitro fertilisation and to act as a surrogate mother because her daughter had had her uterus removed due to cancer and was therefore unable to bear children.

    Both the mother and child were reported to be in good health.

    Dr. Netsu said the woman had first registered the baby as her own and then the child was adopted by her daughter and son-in-law.
No word yet on who the child's future therapist will be, but you can bet an appearance on Dr. Phil is forthcoming.
