On January 3rd, Janet Jackson delivered a healthy baby boy, Eissa Al Mana, with her husband Wissam Al Mana at 50-years-old!
Although women are having babies later, it’s no secret that females, over the age of 40, have a greater chance of infertility. Dr. Kari Sproul a Santa Monica, Calif., infertility specialist, states that for each year after age 30, fertility drops precipitously. By age 45 or so, the majority of women are quite infertile. The chance of getting pregnant without assisted reproductive technology after age 40 is only about 10 percent. During any given month, the chances of a woman over the age of 45 getting pregnant under her own steam and with her own eggs is less than 1 percent.
Well, even with those staggering stats, there are women, 50 and beyond, that are still giving birth like these celebrity moms.
