Chloe Sevigny, 45, is expecting her first child with boyfriend Sinisa Mackovic

Chloe Sevigny shows some PDA with unidentified Boyfriend during an outing in New York, NY

Over the years, I’ve developed some feelings for and about Chloe Sevigny. I used to think she was kind of impossible, but my hate-respect grew into genuine respect over time, and at this point, I think I’m a Sevigny Stan? Do those people exist? I love that she exists – sort of a throwback to the ‘90s, the cool indie kid who grew up to still do weird projects and try her hand at directing and fashion designing. She still lives her life on her terms. And now Chloe Sevigny is going to experience something new: motherhood. At the age of 45.

Chloe Sevigny is about to go on the ride of her life … motherhood, ’cause she’s expecting her first baby!!! The “American Horror Story” star and her man, Sinisa Mackovic, were spotted out Monday in NYC showing PDA and looking really excited about their first child together. They held hands, kissed, laughed and Sinisa even rubbed her belly for good luck … or possibly because of love and stuff.

The Oscar-nominated actress — who just wrapped on the upcoming HBO mini-series, “We Are Who We Are” — is about 5 months into what is, technically, considered a geriatric pregnancy. For those not in the know, that sounds worse than it is. Doctors slap that label on most expectant moms over 35. Chloe’s 45, but that’s not nearly as risky as it used to be. Remember, Janet Jackson was 50 when she gave birth for the first time.

Chloe and proud papa-to-be Sinisa — the director of Karma Art Gallery in NYC — have been together for more than a year.

Isn’t it crazy that Chloe Sevigny kind of set up a TMZ photoshoot to announce her pregnancy? Look at the photos, below. That’s a set-up! The camera is so close. This pregnancy photoshoot comes on the heels of Michelle Williams’ pregnancy/engagement rollout last week, where Michelle went dramatically off-brand and did a set-up photoshoot with People Magazine. The Indie Girls Are Not Alright!!! Anyway, congrats to Chloe and Sinisa – I was not expecting this, and I’m genuinely happy for her.

    How wonderful for her!

  5. Birdie says:

    She doesn’t look 45 at all. Congrats!

  6. SM says:

    Happy for her. And if this guy is not married with kids and she did not get a quickie divorce to get on with this guys (make her reproductive choice with whomever she wants), then she is nothing like Michelle Williams.

  7. Lucy says:

    Congrats!! Very happy for her. I’ve always liked her as an actress and she seems like a hoot.

  8. aurora says:

    Aaaah, remember when she said something along the lines that she looked ageless because she didn’t have kids?
    Anyway, congratulations, I guess.

    • PlaidSheets says:

      Yes! I remember making some bonkers comments some years ago. I’m glad I’m not the only one.

    • Lady Baden-Baden says:

      I remember that too. On the other hand, people say all sorts of defensive things to hide painful feelings. Maybe she’s wanted a baby for a long time but it didn’t happen, so she made flippant comments about kids to pretend it was a choice and she was FINE. Or maybe it’s true – my mother always said Julie Christie looked so good because she didn’t have kids (my mother had 6 of ’em!). Plenty of others say the same about Helen Mirren.

    • tealily says:

      That’s a thing, though. I’m sure she wasn’t trying to be offensive. I’ve been told that before too and I would deeply love to have a child. But hey, if that doesn’t happen at least I still have my youthful glow and plenty of sleep!

    • perplexed says:

      I don’t think she was totally wrong though. Kids cause a lot of worry. If you’re without kids, you likely have less worries. I think even just being married could cause some additional stress. And stress can take its toll on the body.

      Obviously J-Lo and Halle Berry are ageless despite having kids but they’re anomalies who are vampires. I don’t think anything can age them. They might have enhancements to look younger but genetically they are powered to defy age, I think.

      Chloe Sevigny will probably age in the next 5 years though when her kid starts stressing her out. She’s not J-Lo.

      • Christina says:

        Halle has diabetes that her mother controlled with food when she was a child. She has always eaten a strict diet to control it. JLo uses the resources she has to eat well, and both of them work out intensely to keep in shape for work. For actresses, it s a job. We could all look like that if reasonably healthy and it was our job to work with trainers and personal chefs.

      • S says:

        No, we could not, “all look like that” … Genetics plays a HUGE part in looks, body shape and weight. If their beauty was common, it wouldn’t be so celebrated.

        This is in no way denying the hard work, sometimes unhealthy extreme effort and the privilege of wealth which affords both the time and assistance of chefs and personal trainers, as you identify, but also plastic surgeons, dermatologists, stylists and makeup artists.

        But you, or I, could do absolutely everything exactly Halle Berry or Jennifer Lopez does, and still not look like them. Because, well, we aren’t them.

    • Casey says:

      I’m kinda shocked …she always seemed to relish being childfree

      • olive says:

        Cameron Diaz also seemed to relish being childfree. sometimes people change their minds with age.

    • Cali says:

      She has never looked ageless, to who? The delusions are unreal

      • Tanguerita says:

        if anything, the opposite has always been the case – to me she always looks older and perpetually exhausted.

  9. lana86 says:

    BTW all these stories about stars having kids after 40 , in whatever way they manage to do it, can be so misleading for regular women. I mean lots of women assume they can postpone forever, cuz they don’t know how much money and resources it may require….also a younger guy with good hmmm…. quality may prove useful. Not many can afford.
    On the other hand, the planet is overpopulated, obviously… So, to each their own…

    • manda says:

      yes. as someone who waited too long and hoped it would just happen when I wanted it to, I was so so so so wrong about that

    • It’sjustblanche says:

      Not that it matters but she most like used an egg donor. The only issue with that is it’s misleading and potentially hurtful for other women.

      • Christina says:

        I wonder if she has used an egg donor, too. None of my business. If she just met the guy, would a guy agreed after the first date to father a kid? Maybe for money, but I want to believe the Chloe wouldn’t do that with someone she barely knows, so I’m inclined to think that maybe she just got lucky.

      • ChillyWilly says:

        Yes, or she could have frozen her eggs. Bottom line is all this fertility stuff is very expensive and many women can’t afford it.
        I’m happy for Chloe and I generally like her and her work, but this tacky Tmz shoot is off putting to me.

      • Jackie says:

        Ugh, all these comments. Yes, everyone knows the over 40 women who popped out kids effortlessly. My grandmother was one of them. No one is saying it’s impossible, just that it’s not overwhelmingly common. While I struggled with infertility, so many well meaning friends and family pointed to the 50 something pregnant celebrity to give me hope. I even had a very educated nurse friend offer to donate eggs to me when she was 44. No celebrity is obliged to tell us how she conceived but the majority of these women in their mid/late 40s are using IVF with donor eggs. There’s no reason to believe that celebrities have super reproductive powers that us regular folk don’t have. And while it’s true that freezing one’s eggs is a possibility, it’s not as good of an insurance policy as people seem to think. Egg donors are young and vetted and many of them proven and still that’s not a 100% guarantee. So a celebrity who freezes her eggs in her mid/late 30s is not going to statistically have the success with frozen eggs she’d have is she was in her early 20s. If you haven’t dealt with years of infertility and know the stats regarding freezing your own eggs vs using donor eggs, please stop with these ridiculous arguments. Yes, Chloe Sevigny could be pregnant naturally with her own biological child, statistically she is not.

    • Lady Keller says:

      I agree about how this normalizes advanced maternal age. I was lucky to get pregnant twice in my late 30s with no issues, but I have definitely seen women my age struggle. I was recently talking to a friend who is 42 and she mentioned how she was still hoping she had time to find the right guy so she would be able to start a family. I felt like such a dick when I politely burst her bubble by questioning how she was planning on getting pregnant. She figured since people like Cameron Diaz were having babies she’d have time as well. She was surprised when I told her these pregnancies very rarely happy by natural means.

      • Carobell says:

        So true, I think people are oblivious to the fact that fertility treatments are also extremely expensive and invasive with zero guarantees. What Cameron or Chloe can afford is not what most normal people with normal insurance can afford to pay. While I congratulate her, I also think it gives women false expectations and the reality for many women is 45 is too late.

      • Casey says:

        That’s the whole point, ‘by natural means’

        Freeze your eggs, ladies. A lot of women think about it beforehand. If you are putting 100% faith into getting pregnant naturally later, you’re an idiot. Freeze your eggs!

      • Minxx says:

        I agree. Celebrities rarely admit what it takes to have a baby at this age.

    • TQB says:

      I’m a regular woman who had a baby at 42. Am I misleading?

      • S says:

        Statistics aren’t a personal attack. The odds of becoming naturally pregnant for a women at 45 are near zero in any given month (a number so small that it’s effectively zero). That doesn’t mean it won’t happen in rare cases, just that for the overwhelming majority it will not.

        It’s kind of like how, yes, there are real, genuine lottery winners, but YOUR, personal odds of winning Powerball remain so close to nonexistent that you statistically have the same “odds” of winning even if you don’t buy a ticket.

      • minx says:

        I had my first at 39, second a week after I turned 47, with no fertility treatment. Just happened.

      • TQB says:

        @s i understand how statistics work, yes. My point to the OP was why is it “misleading” for a celebrity to be pregnant at 45? Whilst it is unusual and statistically unlikely, it does, in fact, happen. Are we supposed to put an asterisk on our announcements?

      • Casey says:


        There’s always the women on celebitchy that come out of the woodwork when stories like this pop up. They shake their fingers, “don’t be fooled!!!” Pretending it comes from a caring place, but it doesn’t. I guess they can’t grasp that a lot of women prep whether it’s freezing their eggs earlier, etc.

      • minx says:

        I would never give anybody reproductive advice, ever. I just bring up my kids when people say it’s nearly impossible to get pregnant over age 40 or whatever. Because it does happen.

    • Kristen says:

      While discussions about pregnancy and fertility should be more commonplace, it absolutely INSANE to suggest that Chloe S. owes anyone information about her pregnancy just because she is a celebrity. It’s her body and her baby and she has zero responsibility to tell anyone else how she got pregnant.

    • Casey says:

      Can’t believe I had to scroll this far to find the commenters like this! I don’t know if it’s bitterness or what, but there’s always ones that go YEA WELL THATS NOT REALISTIC LADIES IF YOU DONT HAVE KIDS BY 36 YOURE DOOMED!

      gtfo. I don’t know if you’re older and that’s why, but keep the pregnancy and fertility policing at home. There’s a tinge of internalized misogyny to it, too. Most girls I know froze or are freezing their eggs at 32, 33. Sorry it didn’t work out for you guys or you didn’t think ahead of time.

    • Ashla says:

      This is so silly. You think women just see these celebs and go, “see! I can do it too!”

      How insulting for you to think women don’t talk to medical professionals, do their research…but no, we see the pregnant lady celebs and it’s IRRESPONSBLE! Think of those easily impressionable women!

      You seriously think that celebrities shouldn’t reveal this stuff or it be in gossip whatever’s bc it’s ‘misleading’ – you’re acting as if women can’t separate the two worlds. And as if that world somehow should censor itself bc ‘think of the women who think this is normal!’ Good god, ITS CELEBRITIES. You really think they owe it to the world or to you or women to stay quiet? How ridiculous. And you think women are just gonna see that and be..fooled? You don’t consider all the women who go to MDs, research, everything – no, were so fragile & easily duped! Very sad. I hope your opinion evolves…

  10. JanetFerber says:

    I’ve been a Stan of hers for years. Love her in the black/white dress. Super-exciting news about a baby. Congrats to them both. I bought her perfume Little Flower and it is delightful. Just love it.

  11. CharliePenn says:

    I have been a Stan for a long long time! I love Chloe’s confidence, uniqueness, intelligence and humor. Every time she’s on screen I find her super engaging.
    Best wishes to her! She has a lot of resources to help with her health and well-being, 45 is an advanced maternal age but I believe with the right care and support it can be a smooth ride.

    • Christina says:

      She takes really good care of herself from what I can see. She has the best care that money can provide, and she seems generally stress free. I wish her a fun, loving, easy pregnancy. There is nothing better than a baby coming to a woman/family who is happy to welcome a baby. Her alternative, funky vibe will make it fun when she dresses the baby. I’m totally looking forward to the cuteness coming up.

  12. Christina says:

    Congrats to Chloe!

    Whenever it’s mentioned that this is Janet Jackson’s first pregnancy, I feel gaslighted. I remember being in junior high, MAYBE 9th grade, and seeing an issue of Jet magazine that announced that she and James Debarge had just welcomed a baby girl. It wasn’t an article; it was in a section that listed celebrity milestones/news in short sentences, and that was one of them. They were married and then divorced. It mattered to me because he was my favorite Debarge and my teen crush, and my friends and I were HUGE Debarge fans. In old Hollywood, you could hide an entire human, and the Jackson’s dad wasn’t going to let anything get in the way of their success. Everyone didn’t understand how crazy Joe Jackson was back then. I wish I’d of asked to keep that issue. No one ever talks about it, but the rumors are that the baby was raised by one of the lessor-known Jackson sisters as her own child. They deny, deny, deny. I should go to a library and search the microfiche archives, lol.

    • Joanna says:

      I heard that rumor too, back in the old old days! 🤔

    • Lady Baden-Baden says:

      This is fascinating! Tell me more!

      • Christina says:

        That’s all I got, Lady, except that I’m a year older than Janet. It doesn’t seem that long ago TO ME, but it was a looong time ago. It’s so weird to read about something in a magazine of record, because that was what Jet was for the Black Community in the United States, and then have the celeb blow up into a huge star who denies what you KNOW you read. I mean, I followed Janet and the Debarge family because I was a geeky fan, just like all of my girlfriends. When they got married, no one else may have cared, but to my little circle it was a BIG deal. We were akin to the kids who were contemporaries of Vanessa Hudgens and Zac Efron when they did High School Musical. Crazy Hollywood…

    • Bookworm says:

      I remember that being common knowledge too.

    • Sarah says:

      OMG, that’s crazy, I have never heard of Janet having another baby. But Joe Jackson totally would try a whole a** kid if it got in the way of Janet’s success.

      • Christina says:

        Prince William must have learned to control the press about Rose Hanbury from Joe Jackson 🤣

        Sorry, Kaiser, about threadjacking. I just couldn’t help myself.

    • deadnotsleeping says:

      I’d never heard this before and was curious. Debarge’s Wikipedia page says, “In 2016, DeBarge claimed on Growing Up Hip-Hop that he and Jackson have a daughter. [3] DeBarge’s mother Etterlene and his sister Bunny also believe Jackson had his child.” So crazy!

    • TQB says:

      I mean, they were MARRIED and no one fessed up to that, either, right? I don’t recall this but I totally believe it.

      • Christina says:

        They eloped, and Joe was upset. They may have already been pregnant when they eloped. It was represented in the limited press as them being too young. No one was checking for Janet except for her fans, which were few because she had acted as a child on Good Times and had one unsuccessful album at the time.

    • JulieCarr says:

      Yeah, I remember that being a completely open secret in the 80’s/early 90’s. Honestly back then it didn’t even really seem like they were trying to hide it, just move on from it.

    • elle says:

      OMG, you must!

      I didn’t realize Janet had a sister other than LaToya, but just saw that she also has an older sister named Rebbie.

  13. manda says:

    She is very good in Love & Friendship! It’s on amazon prime, it’s so good

  14. Whatnow says:

    Maybe she is having a “change of life baby”. I have several friends who had surprise babies in their mid-to-late forties because they had assumed they were done with everything and menopause was complete. You have to go 12 consecutive months without your period before you can be considered done.
    The one friend being 48 truly had no idea she was pregnant. Went to the doctor because she wasn’t feeling well and was run down and surprise surprise.

    • Christina says:

      My grandma became pregnant with my uncle at 48. Some women have fertile eggs well into their late forties. Nowadays, we assume that is must be artificial insemination, but healthy, clear-sailing fallopian tubes and one fertile egg will do the trick.

    • S says:

      It’s possible, and I 100% think that it’s no one’s business but her own how she got pregnant, though I do also agree with the commenter above who said all these celeb stories of pregnancy in their mid to late 40s gives lots of women the wrong impression that conception past 42-43 is easy and/or common, when it is not. It’s possible, but it’s usually expensive, exhausting and only sometimes successful even with all that.

      Most of those stories you hear about women who just naturally fell pregnant at 45 or higher are 1) stories because they are so rare. You don’t hear a lot of oft-repeated family tales about the ladies in the past who got pregnant at 25 or 35, because it’s super common. And, 2) Those stories are usually about women who already had lots, or at least several, kids. Remember, every pregnancy, in effect, “protects” your eggs, in the sense that you’re not ovulating during pregnancy, and often also for the few months after with exclusive breastfeeding. Meaning: Each child you have adds a year or so to your natural fertility span. So, your Great Aunt who got naturally pregnant at 47, but also already had 6 kids, is still unusual, which is why you’ve heard her story, but a lot less so than a women who’d never given birth falling pregnant at the same age. Obviously, it’s more medically complicated than all that, but you get the gist.

      Reproductive technology is a godsend for a lot of women. Those with fertility issues. Those who wanted to or had to wait for whatever reason. I’m not knocking it one bit. Heck, I wish more women were aware of it, and there was zero stigma around its use. Unfortunately, it’s still far too expensive for many regular people, but if you’ve got the funds to freeze your eggs, or more reliably but also more controversially, use them to make embryos and freeze those, in your 20s or early 30s, I would recommend that option to literally every women of means who has yet to have kids, even if you’re not even totally sure you want them. It’s one of the luxury of choices money can buy.

      I was lucky not to experience fertility issues, but I also know that’s exactly what it was: luck.

      • prettypersuasion says:

        That’s a fascinating point. Both my husband’s grandmother, my grandmother, and my great grandmother all had surprise babies in their late 40s (including a second set of twins for great grandma!! yikes). But they all also had had 4-6 children prior.

      • FHMom says:

        Interesting. My great grandmother had her 8th at 46 or 47. That makes sense to me.

    • Anna says:

      Yes, the “surprise” babies in late 40s and beyond are often because people figure they’re done with that but apparently when you’re in peri-menopause your body produces a shit-ton of estrogen like a last hurrah so you become super-fertile before it drops off into menopause. I’ve been warned by health professionals to be careful and not to assume that just because I’m in my late forties that it couldn’t happen.

  15. thaisajs says:

    I really wish celeb magazines would stop trying to normalize celebrity women having babies in their mid-to-late 40s. There is a reason they call it a geriatric pregnancy. By the time you hit 40, most women have, at most, a 5 percent chance of getting pregnant each month. And it goes down further with age. As some PPers have noted, it is totally possible to get pregnant naturally in your mid-to-late 40s and for everything to go well. But as a veteran of fertility struggles who managed to have one baby at 40 after more than a year of trying (with IUIs and IVF), it does bug me a bit when celeb magazines make it sound like it’s SO EASY to get pregnant that late. It’s really not. I worry about women (like me) who saw celebs like Nicole Kidman etc get pregnant in their 40s and think that I still had plenty of time. I really didn’t.

    Anyway, off the soapbox. I’m happy for her and glad she has a little one coming!

    • Christina says:

      Agreed. Everyone can’t conceive, especially later in life. My grandmother already had three kids when she conceived at 48.

    • KDE says:

      “ it does bug me a bit when celeb magazines make it sound like it’s SO EASY to get pregnant that late. It’s really not. I worry about women (like me) who saw celebs like Nicole Kidman etc get pregnant in their 40s and think that I still had plenty of time. I really didn’t.”

      If you look at those women & use it as an excuse to get pregnant later with ZERO thought about freezing eggs & The science/fertility…this is an individual issue…ppl that look to celebs and go ‘see!’ …let’s just say that’s not smart no matter your age. It isn’t about false advertising, it’s about being gullible enough to believe celebs do it, I can do it. Let’s stop pretending these examples and stories dupe women. They dupe the women who would look to celebs or magazines & see THAT as the example that it’s normal & widespread. If you’re able to be duped to begin with, it’s on the person. If you didn’t take steps earlier on bc NicoleKidman or Cameron Diaz or this girl…let’s be real, it wasn’t smart. Research, medical professionals, taking precautions earlier on in age…not celebs.

      People need to think for themselves & not look to anybody else as ‘proof’ & be ignorant enough to not take steps early on to make it possible down the line.

  16. Chaine says:

    Definitely a photo setup. I guess she got annoyed no one had noticed she was pregnant?

  17. Dizzy says:

    It’s possible but you can’t count on it. My friend had a natural pregnancy at 45. But I know my eggs were done by that time. Not everyone is the same.

  18. Lexilla says:

    “The indie girls are not alright.” HAHAHA. As a teen of the 90s I love that line. Don’t forget the twee indie girl instagramming her love with the cheesy home reno twin.

  19. tealily says:

    I love her and always have! She’s always done her own thing, and it’s always interesting.

  20. perplexed says:

    She probably thought she couldn’t have kids anymore and….whoops!

  21. Jenna says:

    Regarding ‘geriatric’ pregnancies… let’s remember that the issue with fertility over the age of 35 for a woman (or the ‘danger’ of having a ‘not perfect’ child, something people luckily now don’t mention anymore but that used to be one of the reasons to put pressure on women to get pregnant early) started being propagated only AFTER the pill was put on the market Aka when women’s sexuality couldn’t be controlled through the scare of unwanted pregnancies, pressure to ‘settle down’ early started being widespread by referring to ‘scientific’ data on fertility drop after 35.
    However, apparently the data used to draw the fertility curve is taken from 19th century statistics. 19th century, when life expectancy and health in the general population was wildly different to the post WWII years. And there are other issues with the ‘science’ of women’s fertility (yes, medicine is biased: for ex, many organs are widely understudied in women, and western medicine simply uses studies on male organs and physiology for women. The most well known case is that of cardiology.)
    This is all to say, let’s be mindful of putting too much emphasis on pregnant women’s age.

    • S says:

      My sister in OB/GYN, and what you’re saying is…Not accurate. There are lots of consistent, contemporary scientific studies about women’s fertility decreasing with age. In fact, plenty of studies have pointed to increased fertility struggles for otherwise healthy women due to a modern environmental and other factors . You’re correct that medical studies are often biased against women, but in the case of fertility studies, where there’s huge profit potential, it’s quite well, and consistently, studied.

      There’s nothing wrong with seeking reproductive assistance. And it’s nobody’s business on earth how, or if, you have a family. The problem comes when the flood of mid and late ’40s celeb pregnancies make it seem commonplace. It is not. And most–not all, but, statistically, most–are using assistance methods the are well beyond the means of even upper middle-class people.

      My sister sees women almost every day that believe post-40 pregnancy is, if not easy to make happen, at least highly doable, in part due to such glossy portrayals in the press. It’s completely true that Chloe Sevigny owes zero explanations to ANYONE as the how and why of her pregnancy. And it’s not even a little bit her fault if women see it and get the wrong idea about their own likelihood of following in her footsteps. At the same time, if society got to the place where women could be more open and honest about the struggle and expense of having children after 40, without criticism or it implicitly being seen as about their femininity or “value” as women, we’d all be much better off.

      • Minxx says:

        Thank you for injecting a bit of reason into this discussion. I agree with everything you said.

      • mono says:


        No offense S, but if you’re looking to the celeb women as somehow ‘proof’ it can be done, you’re an idiot. Most of us aren’t so glib, but the way you speak of it, it’s like it’s some sort of symptom of women. Stop blaming the celebrities – it’s plain ignorance & failure to take precautions ahead of time (FREEZE YOUR EGGS). If you just go thru your 30s thinking it’ll be no prob to get pregnant at 45 or whatever…stop pretending this is bc of later pregnancies somehow being ‘advertised’ by celebs or stories making ppl think HEY THAT CAN BE ME! You guys seem to think women don’t prepare, research – and don’t use celebs as proof of medical…anything..

        Also S, you’re kind of all over the comments with the fertility and body policing. You were Very wrong above when you said with the money trainers chefs we can’t have bodies like JLo etc. You may never have a face like them but you 100% can have a body like them. It’s East to say ‘nope! Never! Genetics!’ – it’s just an excuse, to pretend that body isn’t possible. Just like it’s an excuse that this exposure of older women getting pregnant somehow negatively impacts women & fools them into making bad choices. My, what a black and white world.

        I don’t know if it’s generational or regret Or resentment or what, but chill, we’re ok. You don’t have to think these kind of stories sway us to be well, stupid. Also, seriously – bodies like celebs ARE possible for EVERYONE if they had those constant resources. The genetics, metabolism, blahblah…excuses. No cherrypicking in science allowed.

      • monos says:


        you are comparing getting pregnant in your 40s to winning the lottery.

        That’s…not at all the same, even in the farthest comparison…at all. I hope you feel better.

      This is a really interesting perspective that I don’t hear brought up very often (if at all).
      Thanks for adding!
      Do you have any resources…for my own interest. I’m sure there’s stuff on pubmed but if you have anything let me know!

      It’s interesting how Nobody talks about male fertility decreasing with age. Men’s sperm starts becoming ‘worse’ and waaaay more downhill after 40 – the older a guy is the likelier the child will have problems, 99% developmental. Autism is a big one.

      But yea, it’s all about women. smh, some of the commenters on here are pretending to care…but there’s a much more selfish, sexist backstory behind the warnings.

        Yeah… I never knew this until I read an article highlighting this fact in the daily mail : } (guilty!) featuring older rock stars and such… and it’s important for women to know it’s POSSIBLE to get pregnant into late 40’s so that precaution can be taken, etc.

    Her brand (“I am too cool for everything.”), or, my perception of her brand, always kind of annoyed me, but she seems genuinely happy so I’m happy for her.

    I really wanted to comment that I love that black and white dress with the hoodie-esque pocket. Seriously. That dress can get it, I every color.

    Im guessing they are announcing it to do away with the speculation. Kind of like, “Yes, Im pregnant. Bye.”

    My aunt had her one and only at 51. Six decades ago, long before IVF. He was fine. Very unusual I know.

    I’m 38 and starting the IVF process after two miscarriages and then two years of infertility. I’m happy for Chloe and this gives me hope.

    I saw a recent photo of Chloe where she was practically spilling out of the top of her dress. At the time, I thought, “I don’t remember Chloe Sevigny being that busty.” With this news, it makes sense now.

    I got pregnant without intervention at 36. Technically geriatric but only just. Gave birth a month after 37. Sometimes life doesn’t happen exactly how you think and you don’t end up having a kid till later. These kinds of stories before I had my son did give me hope (also the fact that my Gramma had her one and only at 36 in 1952). I knew/know they are celebrities and have access to way more resources than me, but it still gave me hope. I didn’t expect it to be easy to conceive. We got lucky. Conceived in May, early miscarriage in June, conceived my son 2 weeks after the miscarriage. Hubby was 38 at the time.

    I didn’t even consider freezing eggs when I was younger – it wasn’t something my friends and I even had on our radar. Would have been smart though.

    I have a good friend in a 1 year old relationship. She just turned 37 and they want a kid or two, but I think want to be married first. Honestly she is just holding onto hope. She is intelligent, she knows nothing is guaranteed – but people getting pregnant later in life gives her hope too.
