Maine Grandmother Serves as Surrogate for Her Grandson 29845

Now that's babysitting! Linda Sirois, 49, gave birth last week to a 7 pound, 14 ounce baby boy named Madden Herbert, who happens to be her grandson.

Sirois carried Madden in her uterus for nine months because her daughter, Angel Herbert, 25, has a heart condition and doctors had recently advised her not to get pregnant, the Portland Press Herald reports.

Angel says the baby's birth by C-section was "an awesome, awesome experience." But Sirois is unassuming about her role in the birth. "I just saw it as I was babysitting for a few months," she told the Press Herald. "It was their child all along. It was just a room for rent."
