Celebrities Who Got Pregnant After The Age of 40
Being pregnant at an early age or over the age of 40 is risky. Consequences include miscarriage, ectopic pregnancy, baby being born hydrocephalic, or has Down Syndrome, caesarian and danger on the health of the mother as well as the fetus.
I'm perusing over the internet articles on how celebrities fare in their late pregnancies because I plan to add another member in the family at this age of mine now (probably around 40-45 age). That is if menopause won't come during these years.
In this hub, I list a few number of famous celebrities who gave birth over the age of 40. Most of these celebrities had opted in-vitro fertilization, which I can't afford to fork out money for that costly process. Some pregnancies of these celebrities were successful at first, or in the end; others are not, which is obvious-- there's the big risk in late pregnancies.
