We often times think of motherhood as something that is only done by people who are in their early 20’s (if not even before that) but the fact of the matter is more and more women are giving birth to children later in life. This particular happening goes on in the regular world and it also goes on when talking about the hottest of hot celebrity moms. Check out just a few hot moms who have given birth after they turned 40.

Jane Krakowski

Jane Krakowski’s character on 30 Rock was always talking about getting fake pregnant in order to gain some attention. In real life, Jane Krakowski likely got pregnant and had her son, Bennett, at the age of 42 simply out of love.

Mariah Carey

Mariah Carey and Nick Cannon were already raising eyebrows when they married thanks to their 10-year age difference. Then Mariah gave birth to twins at the age of 41. Those twins were named Monroe, after Mariah’s hero, Marilyn Monroe, and Moroccan, after the Moroccan-style room in which Cannon reportedly proposed to Carey.

Salma Hayek

Hayek gave birth to her daughter Valentina Paloma Pinault at age 41 way back in 2007. We don’t know which is more surprising, that she gave birth at 41 or that she’s in her 40’s at all.

Celine Dion

Celine Dion believed in the “if at first you don’t succeed…” approach to having birth. After numerous in-vitro fertilization treatments, the singer gave birth to twins Eddy and Nelson at the age of 42 back in 2010.
