It would be no surprise that as a birth photographer, youd be used to being a part of highly emotional moments in peoples lives.

But the birth of little Uma Louise Dougherty-Eledge left one seasoned photographer an absolute mess and the incredible images and the story behind them have since gone viral around the globe.

Being a part of this incredible journey has been one of the most magical experiences, photographer Ariel Panowicz told Yahoo.

Uma Louise was born Monday morning at the Nebraska Medical Center in Omaha to proud dads Matthew Eledge and Elliot Dougherty, who are married.

She was conceived via in vitro fertilization, using Eledges sperm and eggs from Doughertys sister, Lea Yribe.

And it was Eledges 61-year-old mother, Cecile Reynek Eledge, who served as the gestational carrier and gave birth to Uma, helping her son and son-in-law become first-time parents.

This is one of the most incredible story I've ever read. I had to check other sources, given the date.

The oldest surrogate on record was 66. Apparently, after women run out of eggs the incubator still works for quite a long time. They do manipulate the uterus with some hormone injections before just plugging in an embryo.
