It's wonderful for them given the tragic death of their son.  Wonder whether they had any help.

Oh I'm sure the scientologists had a hand in it! Help indeed!

I had two friends in school with mothers who had them in their mid 40's. It does happen naturally sometimes.

More power to them. I hope they're very happy.

Of course they had help! As if they could get pregnant without it. My bet is that the egg/s were donated.

I wish them all the luck & happiness in the world.

Not necessarily.  My Nanna was 47 when she had my Auntie, who is 22 years younger than my Dad.

My sister's sister in law was pregnant at 48.  She thought she had a tumour at first....luckily it turned into a beautiful baby girl!

It does happen naturally, but she could have had donated eggs.

My Nana was too embarrassed to go to her GP, she was half way when she finally took herself off to outpatients at the hospital. Initially, she thought it was menopause, then she thought it was a growth. THe "growth" is now a grandmother herself. original.gif

I think it's great news.

I have 2 friends who have had babies at age 47 and 48, both conceived naturally, and baby no. 3 and 4 for them.

While I don't think it impossible for her to be pregnant at 47, I do wonder if she actually is. I've heard of other celebrity announcements of 'expecting a new addition' or similar wording where it turns out they are going to adopt etc.

I think it is great news, they seem like a lovely family who have been through some very tough times and I hope the new baby brings them much joy.

Who cares if they had help or not! A baby is a baby!

Good on them.

I'm very happy for them. Help or not, they are having a much-wanted baby original.gif That's all that matters.

My theory is that it's frozen sperm from Ron L Hubbard.

But I'm happy for them.

Yes it's great that they are having another baby at 47/56 years - particularly in view of the trauma they have suffered - and yes it's great, whether they had assistance or not.  However - those of us 'older' women, who are hoping for a miracle, ARE interested in whether they had assistance. Just because 'REAL' stories of natural births in later 40's helps us to remain optimistic. (Not because we are trying to pry into their lives, or think they don't deserve it).

Woah 47... thats older than my mum haha.
Good luck to them. Guess John Travolta might be straight after all?

I am sure they had been trying for a baby before Jett died.

Yikes. I would not be happy to be having a baby at 47! But still, it sounds like they're thrilled original.gif.

Of course it can happen naturally at 47.  biggrin.gif

One of my great's had my great grandfather when she was 46. Considering this was many many years ago, I'd say that was completely natural.

I think it's great news.

I think they have distanced themselves from Scientology since Jett died.
