      Julia Navarro to give birth to own grandaughter

      PROVO, Utah (AP) - A 58-year-old Utah woman is set to give birth in a few weeks - to her granddaughter.

      Julia Navarro is serving as a surrogate for her daughter and son-in-law.

      Lorena McKinnon says after struggling with fertility issues, she and her husband tried to find a surrogate.

      After several offers fell through, the Provo woman says her mother stepped up and offered to carry the baby.

      The couple says by having Navarro as a surrogate they're saving about half the $60,000 typical cost of using a surrogate.

      The baby is due in early February.

      The Salt Lake Tribune reports Navarro's doctors had said that because of her age, there was a 45 percent chance the implantation would be successful.
