US parents welcomes Twins born from embryos frozen 30 years ago

It is believed to be a new record for the longest-frozen embryos ever to result in a successful live birth.

They were stored at around -128C (-200F) in liquid nitrogen on 22 April 1992.

Rachel Ridgeway, a mother of four from Oregon, gave birth to the twins on 31 October. The father, Philip Ridgeway, said it was "mind-boggling".

Lydia Ann and Timothy Ronald Ridgeway likely set a new record, according to the National Embryo Donation Center (NEDC). This private, faith-based organisation has helped birth more than 1,200 infants from donated embryos.

NEDC's previous record-holder, Molly Gibson, was born in 2020 from an embryo frozen for nearly 27 years.
