NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WZTV) — Another Tennessee baby has broken a record for the longest frozen embryo to ever come to birth.

Molly Everette Gibson spent more than 27 years as a frozen embryo, beating out her sister's record of being a frozen embryo for more than 24 years.

To some, it's science, but the Gibsons call it another miracle.

The University of Tennessee Preston Medical Library says Molly was frozen in 1992 and thawed in February 2020. Molly was born Oct. 26, a healthy baby girl weighing in at 6 pounds 13 ounces and measuring 19 inches long.

Just a few years ago, Molly's sister Emma was born after spending 24 years as a frozen embryo. She held the record until Molly was born.

Tina and Ben Gibson are the parents of both girls. The girls were frozen together and are genetic sisters.
