London, Mar 20 : A woman has given birth to her husband's child - almost four years after he died.
Lisa Roberts and her husband, James, had decided to have his sperm frozen before his treatment for cancer started.
The couple had been married for six years when James had a cancerous leg tumour diagnosed early in 2004.
Medics had told him that the treatment would leave him infertile so he had his sperm frozen for future use.
Its "ownership" was signed over to his wife in case of legal problems.
James died in October 2008, but his wife wanted to have a child, even though doctors gave her only a 20 per cent chance of becoming pregnant.
Mrs. Roberts gave birth to a beautiful baby girl, Jaimie-Rose.
"I can't believe that something so lovely can come from something so tragic. I hope James is looking down on us with a smile on his face," Times Online quoted Lisa, as saying.
"James always wanted a family," Lisa said.
