HomeCelebrities Pregnant Over 40


celebrities pregnant over 40

Since celebrities are constantly in the media and so many celebrity women and couples are having babies at older ages, they become role models and can change cultural attitudes about older motherhood. It seems our society is celebrity obsessed especially when it comes to having babies. We not only look at their appearance, but also their marital status, their weight before and after the pregnancy and, of course, their age. Celebrities are just regular people when they're not on camera. They have the same struggles as us “regular folk”. But I will say, I do pay attention to those celebrities who have babies over the age of 40. I remember when I was trying to conceive, Madonna had just given birth and she is almost exactly my age. I found this to be a source of inspiration even though I don't know whether or not she underwent fertility treatments.

Here is a list of celebrities who had their babies over 40. Some admit to fertility treatments and/or surrogates, some had natural conceptions and pregnancies, and some keep their information private. In any event, they have joined the “over-40” and sometimes “over 50” club.
