I was 42 when I had my youngest. She's about to turn 5 in a few months.

Laura Linney is one of my favorite actresses.

A bit old for me, but good for her.

She looks like she stays very healthy.  Glad to hear things went smoothly for her and her baby!  I always liked her acting.

my grandparents had preteens in their 60's :-)  They enjoyed every single one of their grandkids...even when some of them were older than their kids.

I remember both of them fondly and their great-great grandkids are the same age as me LOL

 Holy moly ! That is awesome. I am happy for her.

She is an excellent actress too.  I will never forget her in "The Life of David Gale" with Kevin Spacey.
