Twenty-six year old Tina Gibson gave birth to baby Emma who was born 24 years after being frozen as an embryo in 1992.

Emma Gibson was conceived in 1992 and frozen as an embryo and donated to the National Embryo Donation Center, faith-based facility in Knoxville, Tennessee. Her birth mother Tina was born in 1991. 

In an interview with NBC, Tina told them that she could have been best friends with her child:

"If the baby was born when it was supposed to be born, we could have been best friends." 

"We're just so thankful and blessed. She's a precious Christmas gift from the Lord," Gibson said, according the CNN.

The National Embryo Donation Center (NEDC) encourages people to donate embryos to other couples who are unable to conceive.

The organisation only transfer embryo to a man and woman couple who have been married for at least three years.

Its website says: Christian faith is the overriding principle upon which we operate.

The NEDC's Dr Jeffrey Keenan oversaw the embryo transfer. He said it was impossible to be sure whether it had set a record in the process of being born, but it was likely.
