What do Halle Berry, Salma Hayek, Mariah Carey and I have in common? Let me tell you straight out, it’s got nothing to do with money because this Goddess is not rolling in the dough like them. No, what these ladies and I have in common besides being recognizable names (them more so than me…I’m not delusional) is actually more amazing than what is or isn’t in our bank accounts. We all became first time mothers in our 40s.
That’s right, while some of our friends are already or about to become grandparents, we are just getting our feet wet with this whole mommy thing. Either by choice or by circumstance, more women seem to be having their first child well into their 40s. While I can’t speak for Halle, Salma or Mariah, I would have loved to have become a mother much earlier in my life. But that wasn’t what was meant to be for me.
