The risk of pregnancy complications is a lot higher after 40, but even getting pregnant can be very difficult, even when in vitro fertilization is involved. Pregnancies that started out with egg donations are also becoming increasingly common, but Hollywood stars don’t really talk about that.
Take a look at some of the biggest celebrities who got pregnant after 40, and find out if they decided to share any details about the experience or decided to keep everything private.
After giving birth to her daughter Nahla at the age of 41, Halle Berry simply explained that she waited a long time to become a mother, but didn’t mention any fertility treatments or complications. When getting pregnant again at 46, she insisted that the baby was conceived naturally and a complete surprise.
“I thought I was kind of past the point where this could be a reality for me. So, it’s been a big surprise and the most wonderful,” Berry told CNN.
