5 Celebrity Moms Over 40 Who Gave Birth

Halle Berry at "The Call" Premiere

Jaws hit the ground when word spread that 46-year-old Halle Berry is pregnant for a second time. Society tells us that the younger you are, the healthier the baby. However, in a recent interview, Berry challenged those opinions when asked about becoming a mother at such a mature age. “I’m a much better mother at 46 or 41 when I had her, then I would be at 25,” she said. “At that age, I was just a little baby just trying to figure it out, trying to figure out who I was, let alone having the responsibility of trying to help another little soul develop and grow. I’m so glad I waited.”

Berry isn’t the only one to follow the “baby over 40″ trend. Check out some of our favorite Hollywood mommies that waited a little longer.
