Maria has revealed the ultrasound scans which she claims confirms she is pregnant with a baby girl.
She said: “They told me it is a girl. Look, you can see her little face.”
The woman, who did not reveal any details of the pregnancy including whether she had had IVF treatment, says she first suspected she was pregnant three months ago.
She told local media: “My legs hurt and I was vomiting and felt dizzy.
“Now they have done around 10 ultrasounds in a private clinic and in the (public) social security hospital. The doctors could not believe it.”
Maria told reporters that some of her children were not happy with her pregnancy telling her that she was too old to have another baby,
She has an appointment with a gynaecologist on July 18 and she says she is expecting to have a caesarean-delivery because of her age.
