My husband says he is too old at 45! I would have no chance in his 50s, so definitely not his 60s!

I think my biggest fear for these families is that we are seeing dads become older and older, will this mean a generation of young children growing up without their father figure?

What age do you think is too old to become a father?

  • None of us know when we die, young or old, healthy or sick. We can be very young on an old age or very old on a young age. Rather an older dad who is able to love and cherish a child, then a younger dad who abuses or neglects a child.

  • 50 is way too old to have a baby, let alone over that.

  • I do believe it is far too old and selfish to consider having a baby at such an older age. Some simply may not have the stamina or the energy to put into raising them. It isn’t fair on their wives or partners and when they pass away they will most certainly leave the child to grow up without a father figure, and I believe it is important to have a father and mother there which benefits and enhances the child’s upbringing. Sure they may have the money to pour into their children with no exception to cost like your average person, but money doesn’t guarantee a person long life, energy or good health. At some stage of our lives we all burn out, some faster than others. Children need to be brought up with young parents who have the energy and patience to give to them. Life has enough challenges and when a person it in their mid to late 70’s it is time to enjoy your grandchildren, not children.

  • At least these celeb dads are able to afford their new children and help to look after them.

  • A parent doesn’t have to be old to die. My husband died at 47, our children will finish growing up fatherless.
    It doesn’t matter what age the parent is, the child will still grieve the loss of their parent.

  • I hope Mel is still a very fit physically active by the time this child is wanting to share special school and other activites by the time he/she is looking for support at them.

  • It’s hard to say whether being an older dad is okay or not. Personally I would like the father to be a similar age to the mother.

  • 50s and 60s isn’t too old especially if your healthy, late 60s to 70s might be pushing it a bit. You don’t want your child to lose you while they’re too young to handle it. Not that it’s easy to handle ever but hard for children to cope with I think.

  • I wouldn’t be so happy to know I wouldn’t be around for my child when he grows up. But luckily the mothers are quite young. Congratulations to Kelsey Grammer for his new child. He’s such a gorgeous guy!! :-)

  • What on earth has this to do with anyone but the parents.though I’m sure they like the publicity sometimes its better to say nothing.
    Speaking of Jules Oliver how dare people comment on her size ,clothes or if she has got rid of her baby bump. Are we that naïve that we think our comments bother them?

  • The men are older but the wives are alot younger to care for their children!

  • My husband is in his 50’s and says no more. I think its a bit different for celebrities

  • Probably 60 years and older is a bit too old for me. Children need the love, security, guidance and protection of their parents. When you’re reaching an older age this can become hard.

  • I feel sorry for the kids they wont have much of a childhood and most likely they will have to deal with a loss of parent before they hit their 20s.
