She made headlines in 2008 when she became a mum for the first time at age 57 following IVF treatment, but four years on Sue Tollefsen has revealed she now believes it was a mistake to wait so long, and wishes she’d had daughter Freya sooner.

‘I was so ill, I literally thought I was dying,’ says Sue. ‘I kept thinking about Freya, and for the first time, I realized I might not be there for her any more. ‘It’s so true that you learn from your mistakes, and my mistake was not having her sooner.’
