Halle Berry’s rep confirmed on Friday that she was pregnant with her second child after “sources” leaked the story to TMZ and E! News. The question here seems to be, at age 46, is she “too old?”
I was adopted when my parents were in their early 30’s, which I think is fine.
Commonly, the pro for having a child at a later age is financial security. Plus you’ve had more time to grow as a person, which makes you less likely to “accidentally” flush your baby down the toilet or burn it in the microwave.
Sadly, she’ll be 64 when her son turns 18, around 70 when he graduates from college (assuming he goes right after high school) and
dead 92 when he’s 46.
She’s already beat the odds in certain regards (according to many websites, the chance of conceiving in your later 40’s is around 5%) so I won’t go into the risk of miscarriage and mutation.
