PROVO, Utah (AP) - A 58-year-old Utah woman is set to give birth in a few weeks - to her granddaughter.
    
Julia Navarro is serving as a surrogate for her daughter and son-in-law.
    
Lorena McKinnon says after struggling with fertility issues, she and her husband tried to find a surrogate.
    
After several offers fell through, the Provo woman says her mother stepped up and offered to carry the baby.
    
The couple says by having Navarro as a surrogate they're saving about half the $60,000 typical cost of using a surrogate.
    
The baby is due in early February.
    
The Salt Lake Tribune reports (http://bit.ly/1a40CaE ) Navarro's doctors had said that because of her age, there was a 45 percent chance the implantation would be successful.
