I was a first time mum at 38 & had my second at 40 – people said it would be hard but I'm hotter than mums in their 20s | The Sun

EVERYONE has different opinions when it comes to choosing the right time to have a baby. 

Some say it is better in your twenties, and others say wait until you are older and more prepared. 


According to experts, the best time to get pregnant is between your late twenties and early thirties. 

This age range is associated with the best outcomes for both you and your baby. 

However, one mum is fighting back and proving you don’t have to be a certain age to have children. 

Christine Bullock, who is now in her forties, has shared a video of herself on TikTok showing what motherhood looks like when you have a baby later on in life.

The caption on the video, which has been viewed over 22k times, read: “To all the ladies having babies or wanting babies later in life, I had a baby at 38 and another at 40 (and who knows if more are on the way). 

“I feel healthier now than in my 20’s or 30’s. 

“It’s the perfect time. You're (hopefully) wiser, stronger, and healthier.”

In the video she showed herself as “what people expect you to look like at 40 with a newborn” compared to what she really looks like.

Another added: “I honestly don’t know why people on this app expect women at 40 to look bad. I, too, had a baby 3m ago at 40 and look better than I did at 30.”

A third wrote: “Yes!!! Thank you for sharing this perspective. I feel like the only narrative you hear about moms (SIC) over 30 is that they’re tired and frumpy & it’s bs.”
