A 61-year-old German mother pregnant with her eighth child has revealed that it may not be her last.
Alexandra Hildebrandt, director of the Wall Museum in the German capital Berlin, is reportedly expecting her eighth child in July.
The 61-year-old mother said: "My eighth child does not have to be my last."
Speaking to local media, who said she sounded like a football player, she said: "We think from game to game..."
The children's father is management consultant Daniel Dormann, according to reports.
Local media said that Hildebrandt has a son and a daughter who are already grown up.
Her twins Elisabeth and Maximilian were born in 2013, followed by daughter Alexandra in 2014 and son Leopold in 2016.

When she was pregnant with her seventh child, she told local media:
"It has been exhausting. I've had chronic bronchitis for two months, but I'm feeling a bit better now."
Hildebrandt said that her eighth baby will be born in July and that they do not know its gender yet. She added:
"Despite the large baby bump, it won't be twins again like in 2013."
The 61-year-old mother, who had six of her children after her 50th birthday, explained:
"I do a lot of sports, eat a healthy diet, and we pray a lot. It is almost certainly also due to good genes."
When she was asked if her home is getting too small for all the ankle-biters running around, Hildebrandt said:
"Yes, it is already very cramped. However, we are frugal, and if the children can learn to live together and organise themselves in a tight space, they will find it easier moving around in larger rooms."
