One of nature’s little jokes on humanity is that while women’s fertility years are limited, men’s generally aren’t. And since older celebrity guys often have much younger girlfriends and wives, that means lots of famous men become fathers at an age when most men would otherwise be grandfathers. Here are some of the best-known.


Mick Jagger

 
 

Between 1970 and 2000, the Rolling Stones frontman had seven kids with four women. The youngest child, son Lucas, was born in 1999 when Mick was 56.
