A fun post...first time celebrity mothers over 30

Ok. I've been a bit doom and gloom lately. It's hard to stay positive when you only get bad news so I thought I'd do something a bit different for a change. My 'plan' in my early 20's was to have my first child before the age of 30. In fact I thought I might even have two children by that age. Needless to say I have had to change the goal posts and thought I would make myself feel better by listing some celebrity mothers who had their first child and/or children in their 30's or 40's. I hope it is reassuring to others out there who have not been able to have children at the age they first hoped to :)

Jennifer Garner- 33, 36, 39
Gwen Stefani- 36, 38, 44
Jennifer Lopez- 38 (twins)
Brooke Sheilds- 37, 40
Charlize Theron- 36 (via adoption)
Juliane Moore- 37, 41
Salma Hayek- 41
Courtney Cox- 39
Mariah Carey- 41 (twins)
Halle Berry- 41, 47
Naomi Watts- 38, 40
Sandra Bullock- 45 (via adoption)
Drew Barrymore- 37, 39
Elizabeth Banks- 37, 38 (via surrogate)
Cate Blanchett- 32, 34, 39

Now some of these women went through infertility and others didn't but it did make me feel a little better to know that there are plenty of great mothers out there who had their first child after 30 :)


  1. That is kind of encouraging. Thanks for sharing!

  2. No worries Colette. I thought it was about time I put something a little more light-hearted on my blog :)

  3. Love it! So I'm not the only one who scans an article of a celeb mum to see how old she is ;)

  4. Lol Sophie :) It's great when our guilty pleasures are shared with others x
