What's the oldest age you knew someone to have a baby?

My mom just announced she's pregnant! Definitely a surprise to say the least! She'll be 44 when this baby is born, I'm 25 and I'm going to have a younger brother or sister! Crazy!

  • The oldest I personally knew was 36 and they had twins.
    No wait, I just remembered, my ex husbands dad had a baby about 2 years ago and he was in his 40's, not sure how old the woman was though,lol.
    Anyway,so my 32 year old ex husband has a 2 year old brother.
    And my 9 year old son has a 2 year old uncle,lol.

  • I had twins at 35. I have several friends who have had children between 35 and 40. Your mom is a little older than us, but not that much.
