Sooo, my wife and I are planing on trying to have a child(s) haha.. She's finishing up grad school and we're thinking about trying next year! Well that puts me at 47 yrs old if things work out!

I'm really excited about having another child.. I have a daughter and a grandson but always wanted another kid.. (my x didn't want anymore).

Sooo, it got me to wondering about you all here... any older new daddy's out there?

It sure will be a change but a welcomed one if/when it happens!!

Btw, did I mention my wife is 16 years my younger?

If it makes you feel better about the age thing, Rod Stewart just had another kid. He's 66 and his wife is 39.

I had two when I was younger. Couldn't imagine it now that I am close to 45. I admire your energy!

However, the younger counterpart is a big help!

Had my first child at 50! Wife was 45. The sleepless nights killed me but I wouldn't trade it for anything. Do it.

We started young and had four, the youngest of which is now almost 19. I'm 54. I love my kids and wouldn't trade any one of them for a million dollars, but I wouldn't give a plug nickel for another one.

We adopted our first daughter when I was 32 and wife was 33. Then, after three years, we started cranking out three biological daughters...one every two years. Youngest was born when I was 39 and wife was 40. And that was enough! I'll be 65 next birthday, and I'm looking forward to GRANDchildren! Hey, give 'em back when they're ornery!

I was two months away from 40 when my second child, my son Benjamin, was born. I'm now 56, and he kicks my ass.
