Nicole Kidman Wants To Get Pregnant At 47 & These 7 Celebrities Could Give Her Advice

It's scientifically proven: More women are having babies later in life now than ever before. If there was ever an empowering fact, it's that one. Unlike many generations that preceded ours, we (for the most part) finally feel free to live our lives however we see fit, and then settle down and become moms if we decide to. As far as Nicole Kidman's concerned, that's what she's banking on. In a new interview with Australian radio's KIIS 106.5, Kidman revealed that she "hopes every month" she's pregnant — even though she feels like it's pretty unlikely that it'll happen, considering she's now 47.

Of course, Kidman of all people is well aware that later in life pregnancies aren't totally out of the realm of possibility — she gave birth to her youngest daughter, Faith Margaret, at 44, and Kidman said herself that her grandmother had her last baby at 49. Crazier things have happened.

And in the tradition of "old" moms in Hollywood, Kidman would be in pretty good company. There are quite a few other celebrities who chose to live life on their own schedule and had babies after 40 — and if you ask me, they're all amazing.

Tina Fey

Tina Fey was 41 when she had her second daughter, Penelope, in 2011 — and if she’s looking for a lovable 25-year-old to adopt at 44, I would be happy to oblige. Actually, should Fey ever decide to have more children, she’d basically be providing a public service, considering all of the hilarious stories she shares about them on a regular basis.

Gwen Stefani

For someone who shows no signs of slowing down her rocker days anytime soon, it’s not too surprising that Stefani had her third child with husband Gavin Rossdale at 43.

Halle Berry

Listen, Halle Berry is capable of a lot of things that most of us mere mortals are not, but her childbearing skills aren’t too much of a stretch. Berry welcomed her new baby boy in 2013 at the ripe old age of 47. Maybe she can offer up advice to Kidman?

Eva Mendes

I’d prefer to pull the wool over my own eyes and live in a world where Ryan Gosling isn’t taken, let alone a father, but when Gosling and Eva Mendes popped out their daughter, Esmeralda (who is sure to possess super human beauty in every possible way, thanks to her ridiculously good looking parents), Mendes was 40.

Christie Brinkley

I’m not 100 percent convinced that Christie Brinkley isn’t just a living science experiment in immortality, but on the off chance she isn’t, her story should give Kidman at least a little bit of hope. She didn’t give birth to her youngest daughter, Sailor, until she was 44 years old.

Kelly Preston

When Kelly Preston was 48, she welcomed baby Benjamin. Girl, go talk to Kidman. You guys have a lot to discuss.

Geena Davis

Geena Davis is an impressive woman for a lot of reasons, but she’s also a member of the 48 club. That year, she gave birth to twins. Twins. If Davis can do it, I have full faith that Kidman can, too.
