How old when you had your little one(s)?

My little ange is 6 weeks old now. I love him so much but still want another child eventually (sooner rather than later).
I'm 35 years old and, although I see more and more new parents in my age group, it is concerning to me about complications associated with age.
How old were you when you had your baby(s)?
