Gwen Stefani may or may not be pregnant with her third child, which had us thinking about all the other celebrity mothers of the world who found themselves in the family way at 40 and up.

Within this list you will find all the stars who got pregnant after they found themselves over the hill, complete with their real ages. Yes, their real ages. Sorry ladies, no lying allowed.

It’s okay, you all still look great!

Nicole Kidman: Baby No. 1 at 40

Nicole Kidman gave birth to daughter Sunday Rose Kidman Urban (real name) with husband Keith Urban in 2008, their first, which they had through a natural birth. Kidman found her pregnancy to be a blessing considering she thought she would never be able to be a mother, which makes it even more magical.

Tina Fey: Baby No. 2 at 41

Funny lady Tina Fey gave birth to her second daughter, Penelope Athena Richmond, with composer husband Jeff Richmond, when she wsa 41. Unfortunately, it was a very stressful pregnancy and left Fey with woes about juggling work on her sitcom ’30 Rock’ and her desire to expand her family — all problems she worked through in her memoir ‘Bossypants.’

Salma Hayek: Baby No. 1 at 41

Salma Hayek welcomed daughter Valentina Paloma into the world in 2007 with fiance Francois-Henri Pinault, their first child together who would join Pinault’s two other children. Apparently Hayek announced the news to her friends and family via text message, which is pretty tech-savvy for a 41-year-old.

Madonna and her boyfriend at the time, director Guy Ritchie, gave birth to a son, Rocco John Ritchie in 2000, joining Madonna’s daughter Lourdes who was three at the time. When she announced her pregnancy, Madge joked that she was considering naming the kid Baby Jesus. We’re glad she went in a different direction.

Helena Bonham Carter: Baby No. 2 at 42

Tim Burton’s partner Helena Bonham Carter gave birth to their second child in 2007 which was an awesome early Christmas gift to the family. If you have a problem with HBC’s fluctuating bosom size in ‘Sweeney Todd,’ you have little Nell (named for all the Helens in the Carter family) to blame for that one.

Kelly Preston: Baby No. 3 at 47

Kelly Preston, wife of John Travolta tops our list with her birth in 2010 to the couple’s third child Benjamin Hunter Kaleo. They also have their daughter Ella Bleu, who was born in 2010, and their eldest son Jett, who sadly passed away at the age of 16 from a seizure in 2009. Since she gave birth well into her late 40s, many suspected Preston did not have a natural birth.
