While most 65-year-olds are worrying about their grand children, Annegret Raunigk was giving birth to quadruplets. That's right, at 65 this woman was pregnant for the 14th time. Raunigk already had 13 children ranging in age from 44 to 9, but when her youngest child mentioned wanting a younger sibling, she realized that she wanted another baby.
