Despite the fact that Alison – who already had a daughter – had been told by doctors that she was ɪɴFᴇʀᴛɪʟᴇ, and had not had a ᴘᴇʀɪᴏᴅ for 26 YEARS, her dreams of having another child finally came true. Proud mum Alison gave birth to Kylie when she was just 19, and she settled down with her partner Robert four months later.
A year later, the family was sʜᴀᴋᴇɴ when Alison woke up ʙʟᴇᴇᴅɪɴɢ. She went to doctors where ᴛᴇsᴛs ʀᴇᴠᴇᴀʟᴇᴅ sʜᴇ ʜᴀᴅ ᴀʙɴᴏʀᴍᴀʟ ᴄᴇʟʟs ᴏɴ ʜᴇʀ ᴄᴇʀᴠɪx.

More than two decades later, Alison was “overjoyed” to discover that Kylie, then 24, was pregnant.Bizarrely, just as Alison was getting her head around the fact she was going to become a granny she began experiencing some sᴛᴏᴍᴀᴄʜ ᴘᴀɪɴ.
She remembered: “I went to the doctors and two months after Kylie’s pregnancy announcement, in March 2013, I was ᴅɪᴀɢɴᴏsᴇᴅ with I.B.S. My ʙᴇʟʟʏ ᴄᴏɴᴛɪɴᴜᴇᴅ ᴛᴏ ʙʟᴏᴀᴛ ᴀɴᴅ ᴍʏ ᴀɴᴋʟᴇs sᴡᴇʟʟᴇᴅ and my ʙʀᴇᴀsᴛs ɢʀᴇᴡ sᴏʀᴇ too.”
She said: “Even as I cradled Caseylee in my arms, I couldn’t help but worry. My ʙᴇʟʟʏ was still really sᴡᴏʟʟᴇɴ and I had no idea what was wrong with me.” Three months later, Alison was rushed to hospital with ᴀʙᴅᴏᴍɪɴᴀʟ ᴘᴀɪɴs ᴀɴᴅ ɢɪᴠᴇɴ ᴀ sᴄᴀɴ . Alison was sʜᴏᴄᴋᴇᴅ when the doctor announced: “It’s not a ᴄʏsᴛ… it’s a baby.”“Pregnant? How could I be pregnant? It didn’t make sense.”
The nurse confirmed that Alison was definitely pregnant, revealing that she was actually due to give birth in just EIGHT WEEKS.
Alison said: “I was 32 weeks pregnant and I’d had no idea. I didn’t have a ᴅᴇᴀᴅʟʏ ᴄʏsᴛ or even I.B.S – my sᴡᴏʟʟᴇɴ sᴛᴏᴍᴀᴄh was an Incredible Baby Surprise!”The ᴇxᴄɪᴛᴀʙʟᴇ gran-to-be immediately rang her partner Robert, then 53, from the hospital, telling him the news that they were expecting a baby boy. The pair of their were in a daze for days as the news.
Six months after Alison became a grandma, she gave birth to her adorable baby boy, Bobby.

I thought I was ᴅʏɪɴɢ – instead, I got this little cutie!”
