Julianne Moore

It’s hard to believe Julianne Moore is in her 50s, but maybe it’s her young kids that keep her looking youthful. She gave birth to her second child at 41.

Kelly Preston

Tragedy struck John Travolta and Kelly Preston when their 16-year-old son, Jett, suddenly died in 2009. The family continues to heal, which has hopefully become easier since baby Benjamin came onto the scene. Kelly was 47 when she gave birth (in complete silence!) to the little guy.

Celine Dion

Although we didn’t know about it at the time, Celine Dion had a very hard time getting pregnant the second time around. On a very revealing episode of Oprah, Dion told the host she had suffered a miscarriage and experienced four unsuccessful IVF attempts. Eventually, however, Celine Dion was able to get pregnant and gave birth to twin boys at age 42.

Halle Berry

Halle Berry continues to prove she has it all. She is painstakingly beautiful, she holds an Academy Award and at 41 she had a baby with a gorgeous male model who is almost a decade younger than her!

Marcia Cross

When Desperate Housewives actress Marcia Cross gave birth at age 44 to twin girls, all did not go smoothly. “My eyesight started going, and I gained 12 pounds in one week. Both are symptoms of pre-eclampsia, a complication that is life-threatening for mother and baby.” Luckily, both mom and babies made it through the C-section delivery fine, but Cross has vowed not to have more children.

Geena Davis

This actress and Mensa genius didn’t have her first child until age 46 and then followed up with twins just two years later. Is there anything she can’t do?

Susan Sarandon

Susan was once told she was unable to have children, but she beat the odds and had three kids — two of them while in her 40s — with former partner Tim Robbins.

Brooke Shields

Maybe things do get better with age. Film siren Brooke Shields gave birth to her youngest daughter, Grier, at 41. And luckily, postpartum depression wasn’t an issue this time around like it was after the birth of her first daughter, Rowan, years earlier.

Nicole Kidman

Thank goodness for the movie Australia! During filming, Nicole Kidman became pregnant and gave birth for the first time at 41 to Sunday Rose. In 2010 Kidman became a biological mom for a second time, this time through surrogacy.

Salma Hayek

Actress Salma Hayek celebrated a lot of firsts in her 40s: first time to be engaged, first time to get married, and first time to have a baby (just not in that order). We imagine she’s enjoying her 40s quite well.
