Jill Stanek: 40+y/o Celebrities and IVF Pregnancies

June 10, 2010

From Jill Stanek:

Three weeks ago 47-yr-old actress Kelly Preston and 56-yr-old actor husband John Travolta announced they were expecting a baby. (Twins denied.)

Then a week ago 42-yr-old singer Céline Dion announced she and 68-yr-old husband René Angélil were expecting twins.

Both pregnancies were reportedly conceived via in vitro fertilization.

(And if these things do come in 3s, keep an eye on 40-yr-old singer Mariah Carey, whose 29-yr-old singer Nick Cannon didn’t exactly quash rumors a few days ago that she’s pregnant as well.)

Congrats to all. We’re praying for healthy babies.

Even though we recently observed in 44-yr-old Michelle Duggar that women over 40 do conceive naturally, pregnancy past 40 isn’t the norm.

On May 31 OB/Gyn Dr. Jennifer Ashton described on CBS’s The Early Show the staggering preborn death toll to achieve a successful 40+ pregnancy…

We’re seeing this more and more among celebrities, and it appears that 40 would be the new 30 when you’re talking about pregnancy and fertility. Not exactly the case.
