Embryos frozen for 30 years produce healthy twin newborns

A pair of twins born in late October arose from embryos that had been frozen for nearly 30 years, CNN (opens in new tab) reported.

The twins, named Lydia and Timothy Ridgeway, may have broken the record for being the longest-frozen embryos to ever result in a live birth. The previous record-holder (opens in new tab), Molly Everette Gibson, arose from an embryo that had been frozen for about 27 years. Her mother, Tina Gibson, was just 1 year old when that embryo was put on ice.
