Molly is the newest member of the Gibson family.

Molly Gibson was born in October this year, but had already been in the works for 27 years.

Her embryo was frozen in late 1992 and remained that way until February 2020, when Tina and Ben Gibson, in the state of Tennessee (USA), adopted her.

It is therefore estimated that Molly set a new record for the frozen embryo the longest that resulted in a birth, surpassing the mark of her older sister, Emma, ​​who was born two years earlier.

“We’re on the moon, I still feel like I’m drowning,” Tina Gibson noted after the second birth.
