Since I wrote a post a little while ago talking about young celebrity moms, I thought it was only fair to highlight some of the amazing women in Hollywood who had kids later in life! Becoming a mother does not have an age requirement, and there are plenty of famous names to prove it.
Between women taking more time to further their careers and the evolution of modern medicine, plenty of babies are being born to moms who would’ve been considered “past their prime” thirty years ago. There is no reason that any woman should have to sacrifice being a mother simply because she’s crossed some “magic threshold” for having babies.
Mariah Carey just welcomed twins, Moroccan and Monroe, with husband Nick Cannon, and she is 41 years old. Mariah waited to have children until she settled down with the right man, and she and Nick are over the moon about their new babies. We have yet to see pictures of little “Roc and Roe”, as they’ve been nicknamed by their parents, but we’re sure that they are beyond adorable!
I originally intended to do a slide show of 10 celebrity moms who had children later in their lives, but when I went to research this topic, I actually found 20 famous older mamas, including Mariah!
Here are photos of 19 other women who prove that motherhood can happen at any age.
