Many famous and successful women put their careers first and do not seek to have children, fearing that they may somehow become an obstacle to achieving their goals. That is why it is very common for celebrities to become mothers after the age of 35. However, there are cases of very late childbirth - after 50 years.
OBOZREVATEL offers to talk about such examples. As you know, giving birth at this age increases the risk of birth defects in the fetus. However, despite all the difficulties, celebrity mothers managed to bear and give birth to healthy babies on their own.
The sister of the iconic Michael Jackson, singer and actress Janet Jackson became a mother for the first time at the age of 50. Pregnancy was very difficult for the celebrity. She faced the threat of miscarriage and gained over 43kg in nine months. Because of this, the star had to cancel her world tour. However, the baby was born completely healthy, becoming the main joy and meaning of life for his star mother. Jackson quickly lost the pounds she had gained during pregnancy, but problems began to arise in her marriage to 41-year-old millionaire Wissam Al Man. The child was not yet six months old when her parents divorced.
The Brazilian actress, who became famous thanks to the cult TV series "Clone", gave birth to her third child at the age of 54. Many discouraged the woman to leave the baby at such an age, but she not only had no problems leaving nine months, but also gave birth to a perfectly healthy boy, without resorting to a caesarean section. The baby was fathered by a Koutou fan who had been in love with her since the age of 16. The man is 30 years younger than his chosen one and for him the child from the actress became the firstborn.
The famous American writer and actress has been trying to get pregnant for a long time. Both naturally and with the help of artificial insemination. But none of the attempts were successful. When the woman was desperate and did not hope for a miracle, she found out that she was pregnant. And not just pregnant with hope - she was pregnant with twins. Barbeau, who was almost 51 at the time, did not even think about whether she should give birth at that age. The boys were born perfectly healthy. Years later, the star said that children help her stay young and not pay attention to the numbers in her passport.
The fifth wife of the cult American director, producer and screenwriter Martin Scorsese, Helen Morris, was not afraid to get pregnant at the age of 52. Nine months later, a healthy baby girl was born, who was named Francesca. She is now 23 years old and has appeared in some of her legendary father's cinematic masterpieces.
Bridget Nielsen, the ex-wife of world-famous actor Sylvester Stallone, a Danish model, actress and singer, became a mother for the fifth time at the age of 55. In the spring of 2018, she announced her pregnancy, but many people could not believe the news was true. The woman did not post anything on social media or talk about how her pregnancy was going. But soon, Nielsen showed a photo of her rounded belly, and after a while, she published a picture of her daughter, who was named Frida, for the first time. After the birth, the girl spent another month in hospital with her mother. Later, the model admitted that she dreamed of a younger daughter and tried to get pregnant for more than a decade, and only at 55 did her cherished dream come true.
