World's First 'test-tube' baby set to give birth; baby conceived the 'old-fashioned' way

On July 25, 1978, Louise Joy Brown, the world's first successful "test-tube" baby was born in Great Britain. Now the world's first test-tube baby is expecting a baby of her own. Brown, 27, is due to give birth in January. She has been married for two years to a security officer, Wesley Mullinder, and their baby was conceived the old-fashioned way."This is a dream come true for both of us," Brown told Britain's The Daily Mail newspaper. The couple live outside of Bristol where Brown is an administrative assistant for a shipping firm. They made headlines in 2004 when they married. The pregnancy is yet another in a long list of headlines surrounding Brown's life that began in such an unusual way.
