Lemech'2nd wife, Tzilah, was supposedly barren from drinking the kos shel akarim. Nevertheless, she gave birth to Tuval Kayin, and Naamah.

I do not know if this answer is correct, as I would think the question is Who was the first natural Akarah to bear children. –  Gershon Gold Oct 15 '10 at 13:09
    
I said Akarah, meaning in general, natural or not. This is exactly the correct answer! –  Yahu Oct 17 '10 at 4:21
    
Not 2'nd wife, but one of his wifes. since there are two opinions which of them was for פריה ורביה and which for other purpose. –  jutky Oct 19 '10 at 20:02
