For most women, becoming a mum is one of biggest turning points in their lives. Some may have their child earlier in life while others choose, or have, to wait. While waiting may be frustrating, it definitely is worth it once you’ve laid eyes on your little angel.
These celebrity mums show us that parenting knows no age and that contrary to popular belief, it is never too late to give birth to a child even in your 40s. Life begins at 40 anyway, right?

恭喜发财! 万事如意！🎉 We packed in as many house visits as we could today, so all of us were pretty knackered by sundown. Thank you to all family and friends for your generous 红包s and blessings. The twins had a lot of fun meeting and getting to know their extended family. Here’s wishing everyone a prosperous and healthy Year of the 🐷 ahead! 💕 #mezzarantwins #reubenmichaeltan #maeganrileytan #randalltan #melodychen #mezzaranclan #chinesenewyear2019

When Fann gave birth to Zed, she was head over heels in love with him. The actress, who was 43 then, admitted that her son changed her life and when she found out she was pregnant, she couldn’t stop smiling. The kung-fu-fighting girl from Jackie Chan’s Shanghai Knights movie has become a different kind of tough with the arrival of the baby she’s been waiting for so long.
