11 famous women who proved that it is possible to become a mother in both 40 and 45
Probably, many will be surprised, but scientists have come to the conclusion that it is better to give birth to a child in 30–34 years. It is at this age that the balance between health and social well-being is optimal. But some go further and give birth at the age of 35+.
We wondered which of the famous women ventured to become a mother when many are already “content” with the role of the grandmother.
Susan Sarandon has three children, and she gave birth to all of them rather late - at 39, 42 and 45 years old.
In her youth, the actress was recognized as barren, and for many years she had not used contraceptives. But quite unexpectedly, she became pregnant, and then again and again. Susan says she was happy to feel stronger than any diagnoses.
See how beautiful her children are. Yes, she herself is nothing for 71 years.
Jennifer Lopez didn't succeed as easily as the previous heroine did. She wanted to have children for a long time, but nature was adamant. Then the star resorted to the method of IVF.Its essence is that the egg is removed from the body, fertilized “in vitro” and returned to the uterus when it becomes clear that the embryo is developing normally.
The procedure was not successful for Jennifer the first time, but now she brings up wonderful and very desirable twins, whom she gave birth to in 38 years.
Kelly Preston - the wife of John Travolta, who became pregnant as early as 47 years old, and it was a real gift of fate. The fact is that a year before the Travolta family suffered a misfortune - the only son of Jett died.
“Benjamin gave a new life to our family,” Kelly said about the birth of a child.
The first son of Rene-Charles the singer gave birth to 33, and the twins Eddie and Nelson only 42.
The singer had to endure as many as 6 IVF attempts and a caesarean section, but in the end she managed to give birth to healthy twins. She admitted: “IVF is emotionally very hard, you should always remember how lucky you are to be a mother.”
The actress, it seems, really does not age, and this is manifested not only in the fact that she looks great. Halle Berry first became a mother at 41, and gave birth to her second child at 47, which was a big surprise for her.
"I thought that all these experiences are already in the past and I am on the verge of menopause, and here is the news," said the actress about pregnancy.
Kim Basinger has only one child - a daughter with a beautiful name Ireland (Ireland). And judging by the photos of these beauties you can not even say that the difference between them in 41 years.
Ireland Baldwin is shot for magazines and sometimes plays movies. Due to the similarity with her mother, she played her heroine in her youth in the film “Revenge”.
Forever the young rebel Gwen Stefani gave birth to the sons of Kingston and Zuma, when her age was approaching 40. And at the age of 44 she became a mother again, revealing to the world her son Apollo.
And after all, how cool she looks with children - you can't even say that she is far from being a young mother.
According to Salma, she always dreamed of having children, but her health did not allow her that. And at 41, everything finally worked out.
Pregnancy proceeded hard, the actress gained 23 kg of excess weight, but then was able to return to the form. Here is what she said about her late motherhood: “10 years ago I could not give my daughter as much as I can give now. She was lucky that she was born exactly when I was over 40. "
The queen of pop got her first child - the daughter of Lourdes at 36, and then at 41 she gave birth to a son Rocco. In addition, the singer brings up four more adopted children from Africa.
“Before the birth of children, I was very selfish, but motherhood radically changed the course of my thoughts,” says Madonna.
Mariah Carey became a mother only at the age of 41, and this also was not easy for her: the pregnancy was complicated by preeclampsia (threateningly high blood pressure) and gestational diabetes, and the babies were born using caesarean section. Mariah literally pulled out her right to be a mother from the hands of fate. However, with the father of children Nick Cannon singer, alas, broke up.
The actress was taken aback by the diagnosis “infertility”, but, to her surprise and joy, she suddenly became pregnant at 39. “My daughter appeared at the most appropriate moment in my life. I played so many roles and visited so many places, and now I’m ready to give her everything I need, ”says Monica. Now the girl with the beautiful name Virgo is 13 years old and she is already higher than her mother.
The second daughter Monica gave birth to 45. The actress admitted that she was very frightened to learn about the pregnancy, because she understood that at that age she could be dangerous.Fortunately, everything went smoothly and Leoni was born.
“For all 9 months I have never applied to doctors with some kind of abnormal situation. Of course, it is dangerous to give birth at 45, and I do not call for this to be women, but I can say that motherhood is my main role in life. If I could not get pregnant naturally, I would probably decide on artificial insemination, ”says the actress.
We agree with Monica: it is much easier and safer to give birth to 35, but anything can happen in life. Of course, the stars in this regard are somehow simpler - they are rich.
