A Royal Late-in-Life Mom
I search out all things related to late-in-life motherhood--and I especially like to welcome another woman to the life as a mommy-come-lately!
Britain's royal family is part of the late-in-life motherhood trend. On Monday, December 17th, Prince Edward's wife, Sophie, 42, gave birth to a baby boy. Edward and Sophie, who are known as the Earl and Countess of Wessex, have a daughter who was born in November 2003. By my calculations, Sophie would have been 38--so she's a repeater mommy-come-lately.
Preview of a coming blog post: I'm tracking down a report titled Analysis of the Biological Clock Decision. The authors of the report supposedly have developed a mathematical model to help a woman determine the best time to have kids.
Oh, really?!?! We've reduced pregnancy/motherhood to a math equation?
