  • Her account, ‘The Good Wifey’, boasts a following of over 70,000
  • A number of followers appear to have fooled by her sarcastic posts 
  • Claims her skin is in good condition by toning with the tears of her children  


A pregnant mother-of-two who makes satirical videos has convinced some people that she is 62-years-old – saying she retains a youthful glow by using the tears of her children as skin toner.

Jenny, 42, from Portland, Oregon, runs the Instagram account The Good Wifey where she’s racked up a following of 70,000 people, and is expecting a baby boy in November. 

In a series of videos, she’s claimed she’s 62-years-old and describes the baby as a ‘miracle’, since she hasn’t had a period in 16 years and her husband, 72, had a vasectomy more than a decade ago. 

She created the videos to poke fun at the idea concept that expectant mothers over the age of 35 are considered ‘geriatric pregnancies’, and while many people get the joke, a number of her followers appear to believe she is genuine. 

Commenting on a video titled Getting pregnant at 62, one wrote: ‘A lot of my clients are 45+ having babies! I think it’s amazing even if you weren’t exactly planning this chapter of your book!’

Another added: ‘I don’t think you’r too old. I just think about you’ll be 72 when he/she is ten or at 20 he/she might be a care giver. At 30 when he gets married you’ll 92. Whoaaa something to think about.’

Along the same lines, another added: ‘The typical life span ends at 76. It would absolutely be devastating for that child to lose their mother from old age and that child isn’t even a teenager.’ 

A lot of respondents seem unsure, with one writing: ‘Is she really 62? I’m so confused.’

And a further Instagram user wrote: ‘Well there are women in the Bible that had children in their later years. Anything is possible. I am praying for a miracle.’
