October 21, 2016  |  

Celebrity women are proving science wrong left and right as some of the entertainment biz’s leading ladies continue to have babies at 40 and beyond.



Audra McDonald is one of those women, having just given birth to a baby girl Wednesday, October 19 at 46. The Tony Award-winning actress shared the news of Sally James McDonald-Swenson’s arrival on Twitter Thursday morning.

In May, McDonald hilariously broke the news of her pregnancy, tweeting:

And the second time mother has shared other funny insights along the way, like this lesson of the day.

Audra’s Lesson of the day:

McDonald and husband Will Swenson married on October 6, 2012 and this is their first child together. McDonald also has an older daughter, Zoe, with ex-husband Peter Donovan whom she divorced in 2009. The oldest daughter is named after McDonad’s close friend, Australian actress Zoe Caldwell. We can’t wait to hear who bears little miss Sally’s namesake.

Congrats to Audra and Will on a healthy baby girl!
