    ^My ex was 48 when our child was born. He said it was nicer for him than when his other 2 kids were born. He felt more prepared to be a father, was more settled financially, and was overall more relaxed.

    ^^At any age, it probably mostly depends on whether the guy really wants the child(ren) or only agrees to make his wife happy.

    I think Alec wants to be a Dad again. Hopefully it will go well.

    I agree with Sluce. My son's dad was in his 40s when Snowflake came along. He was in his 20s with the other two and was working all the time. Even his wife/mother of other 2 says he's a better dad to Snowflake. Something to do with missing so much time with the other two really made him want to slow down and enjoy time with the boy.

    And LOL at the "could drop dead tomorrow" comment, Charmed. The babies that I carried... well, the father is almost 61 and has battled/battles prostate cancer. And he's enjoying chasing 4 little 18 month old girls around everyday as a SAHD!

    We were in our late 30's and over the financial hump when we had them. Also, had more flexibility with our schedules, and in-laws that had moved into town, too. And now live with us.

    For me, with age came maturity (not on this board, of course - but in real life), and the realization, the absolutely awe-inspiring realization, that you have the power to totally screw up a young person's childhood and even their long-term emotional well being if you aren't paying attention and putting effort into being a decent parent. I don't think I would have had that kind of epiphany, or the flexibility to do things the right way, if I had had children starting in my late 20's. Huge kudos to parents that can, and do, achieve that at a younger age, though.

    I am 47, with two adult children, and I can't imagine having another baby now. Nor do I want to. The very idea is exhausting. If I ever have an urge to play mommy again, I'll adopt a puppy.

    ^I'm almost 50 and can't imagine starting over again either but it's different for him. He didn't do the day to day raising of Ireland. And let's be honest - in most cases, it is more work for the mom. You an I have come out the other side and are getting to start a new chapter of our lives. Alec has just chisen a different novel so his chapter will be different. I don't like horror stories.

    I wonder if Hilaria has already got a taste of Alec's temper? Will she put up with him calling their kids "thoughtless little pigs" for misbehaving?

    seriously, if that's the worst your parents ever call you, consider yourself lucky. children are fucking infuriating sometimes, even more so when there's a nasty divorce and custody battle and your ex is a loony psycho bitch (kim basinger) who uses your kid as a pawn. i never uderstood what the big fucking deal was about the little pig comment.

    His daughter was a thoughtless little pig for not calling when she agreed and taking his calls as scheduled.

    She already apologised for not answering the phone fast enough.

    No. That's the voice of reason and logic. Listening makes for a happier life.
