There seems to be an obsession with celebrity pregnancies, but even more so when those celebs are past a certain age. Most women can relate to the feeling of their "biological clock ticking" as they enter their 30s, but they may be pleased to learn many celeb moms had babies well into theirs.
Plenty of healthy, happy, beautiful bundles of joy were born to these famous moms after they turned 35! From Jennifer Lopez to Meghan Markle, these women prove age really is nothing but a number as they welcomed newborns later in life.
We rounded up a few of the most famous mothers who had babies after age 35 to prove those biological clocks wrong!
10 Jennifer Lopez, 38
Jennifer Lopez welcomed twins Max and Emme with then-husband Marc Anthony when she was 38 years old. The now 50-year-old Lopez says she's grateful to be a mom, especially since it happened later in life for her.
"I didn't have kids until later, and I almost thought that it wasn't going to happen for me. I'm very aware that I was blessed with that. I don't take it for granted for one day."
Lopez is now engaged to Alex Rodriguez, who has two daughters of his own. It appears this is one, big happy family as Jennifer and Alex parent their four children together!
9 Mariah Carey, 42
The songstress and then-husband Nick Cannon had twins Moroccan and Monroe when Carey was 42. However, the couple suffered a devastating miscarriage before getting pregnant with the twins.
Both Cannon and Carey have called their kids the "greatest gifts" and credited them with showing them the "true meaning of love" as they co-parent pretty flawlessly. We love seeing how happy they are when with their kids!
8 Rachel McAdams, 39
Rachel McAdams and boyfriend Jamie Linden very secretly welcomed a baby boy when the actress was 39. While McAdams maintains a very low profile and aims to keep her son out of the spotlight, she did go on record saying motherhood is the greatest thing that has happened to her.
“It’s the greatest thing that’s ever happened to me, hands down. I waited a long time."
Of course, we're dying to see what The Notebook beauty's baby boy looks like, but so far there are no photos of the little one available to the public.
7 Eva Longoria, 43
Eva Longoria became a mom for the first time at 43 as she and husband José Bastón welcomed son Santiago to the world in 2018. Longoria called her son a "beautiful blessing" as she shared photos of the newborn to her social media accounts.
Fans can watch little Santiago, who just celebrated his first birthday, grow as his famous momma isn't shy when it comes to posting his photos online. Just look at those big brown eyes!
6 Halle Berry, 47
The now 52-year-old Halle Berry is mom to two kids - daughter Nahla and son Maceo. Berry gave birth to a daughter with model Gabriel Aubry at age 41 and son Maceo at age 47 with French actor Olivier Martinez. Berry is currently co-parenting with both of her exes as she raises her adorable children out of the public eye. Berry proves you can really have it all no matter at what age as she leaves us in awe of her beautiful family!
5 Gwen Stefani, 44
Gwen Stefani shares three boys- Kingston, Zuma, and Apollo- with ex-husband Gavin Rossdale. The singer gave birth to her first son in her mid-30s while having her third baby at age 44.
Stefani appears to be a very hands-on mom as she's photographed with all her boys and shares special moments with fans on social media. Currently, Stefani and boyfriend Blake Shelton are co-parenting her kids with Rossdale as it appears the country star has taken to raising her boys as his own.
4 Kirsten Dunst, 35
Kirsten Dunst welcomed son Ennis with partner Jesse Plemons in May 2018 at age 35. The actress may be a big time Hollywood star, but she managed to keep her pregnancy under wraps until a few months before giving birth. The spunky star was spotted looking quite adorable during her pregnancy as she proved motherhood really doesn't have an age limit. Unfortunately, there isn't a lot of photos of baby boy Dunst as this couple has kept him out of the spotlight so far.
3 Eva Mendes, 42
Actress Eva Mendes had her first baby at age 40 and her second at 42. Mendes shares both daughters, Esmeralda and Amada, with long time partner Ryan Gosling. While we are certain both little girls are absolutely adorable, this famous couple has made sure to keep them out of the public eye.
However, we don't blame Mendes and Gosling for wanting to keep their kids out of the spotlight as other celebrity parents have done the same. Until then, we'll settle for just imagining how precious Mendes' and Gosling's girls are as rumors continue to swirl the actress is currently expecting twins.
2 Amy Schumer, 37
Funny lady Amy Schumer welcomed her first child in May 2019, a baby boy named Gene, at age 37. Schumer turned 38 a few weeks after delivering her son as she celebrated by showing fans photos of Gene on her social media. Schumer documented her pregnancy as she shared her struggles with fans. Since then, Schumer has kept it real about the transition to motherhood as she continues to make jokes about being a mom.
1 Meghan Markle, 37
Prince Harry and his blushing bride Meghan Markle, also known as the Duchess of Sussex, welcomed their baby boy when Markle was 37 years old. Baby Archie has officially made his royal debut on the family's Kensington Palace social media as his parents give their loyal followers a peek at their little one. In true royal family tradition, fans can expect to see more photos of the growing little one on the Kensington Palace page.
