Angie Stockton, 45, gave birth to Tucker Saxon, who weighed 7-lbs., 12 oz., making her the first to do so in the state of Georgia, MyFoxAtlanta.com reports.

"It's been 26 years since I've been pregnant. I've forgot a lot of things," Stockton, whose daughter Krista Saxon stepped in to help remind her what to expect.

"It's funny because she's the one who ended up with a lot of the pregnancy symptoms," Stockton told MyFoxAtlanta.com, of Saxon.

While the family says the pregnancy yielded some curious questions, the new parents say they are extremely grateful.

Saxon was not able to carry children of her own. "As a mother, that's something that I wanted to do," Stockton said.
