These 10 celebrity moms are proving that age really is just a number and have all given birth after the age of 40. They are defying their biological clocks and showing that fertility doesn’t end as quickly as you think. These Hollywood starlets are flaunting their baby bumps and proving that “midlife” mother can be fabulous:

Madonna may very well win “cool mother of the year” for her nonchalance on June 18. The 54-year old pop icon attended the after party for the Cinema Society screening of her documentary,¬†Madonna: The MDNA Tour,¬†last Tuesday with her kids, Rocco and Lourdes. According to an onlooker, Madonna didn’t seem at all frazzled when Lourdes started making out with her boyfriend, Homeland actor, Timothee Chalamet. A source told UsMagazine.com that the young lovebirds were dating but in a “loose sense.” “They are teenagers being teenagers so I guess you can call it that,” the source said.
How do you now when you’re trying to be too “cool” with your kids?

When you and your partner have a fight, do you blog, Tweet, change your status on Facebook and call all of your friends to let them know about it? If so, you might be endangering your relationship by sharing too much information with others.
As many celebrities (e.g., Kim Kardashian, Tom Cruise, Madonna) have discovered, it‚Äôs hard to nurture the tender bud of a healthy romance in the harsh glare of the public eye.
When surrounded by a celebrity culture and constantly looking at the world‚Äôs most beautiful or talented elite, it‚Äôs hard not to start wishing that two of your favourite celebrities were dating. No matter how perfect some couples seem, deep in our hearts we always know they could do better. Whether we think they‚Äôd make a great match or just want to see the children, here are five celebrity couples we wish existed:
Since Madonna split from film director Guy Ritchie in 2008, it hasn’t been easy being a single, working mother. ¬†The “Material Girl” hopes to inspire others in her situation with¬†her upcoming album MDNA, where she expresses the challenges of juggling life as a single parent. ¬†“I hope I’m a role model. ¬†I hope I give other girls a voice. . . someone to look up to and admire,” Madonna said, according to UsMagazine.com. ¬†“I keep rolling with the punches and trying to have integrity.” ¬†With this album, the pop singer hopes to inspire women and give them the strength to handle whatever struggles come their way.
What are some ramifications of being a single parent?
The truth is, a little PDA is part of any healthy relationship, and it‚Äôs no different for our favorite celebrity couples. ¬†But, when PDA goes from ‚Äúfrisky‚ÄĚ to all-out ‚Äúforeplay,‚ÄĚ couples should pull the curtains on the show and head indoors.¬† While some Hollywood duos try to keep their lip-locking to a minimum in public, these celebrity couples opted out of getting a room and gave their fans a VIP pass into their love life:
Guethary is now on the map.¬† The little French village with a population of 1,600 was the recent vacation spot for Madonna and her much-younger dancer boyfriend Brahim Zaibat last Tuesday for two weeks, according to People.¬† The couple was spotted Wednesday morning in matching exercise gear biking on the village’s cycling paths before meeting with her 14 year-old daughter Lourdes at a beach close to the village port.¬† Still, the biggest question remains to be answered is, why Guethary?¬† “We have three hotels, six small restaurants and no nightclub,” said a representative from the local tourist office. “We’re known for our three surfing beaches, but besides from that there’s nothing. Only reason she would come here for … is … is the quiet.”
What are some “out of the way” vacation spots good for couples?
Ever thrown a drink in a man’s face because he said something piggish?¬† I have (and highly recommend it).¬† However, while recently out to dinner with a male friend – let’s call him Master Key – I curbed my natural reflex and listened to what he had to say.¬† As we cocktailed, our conversation turned to how many¬†intimate partners were acceptable for men and women in this day and age.¬† Master Key crudely summed it up as follows:
“It’s a key/lock situation.¬† Well, a man is naturally the key.¬† The woman is the lock.¬† A key that opens many different locks is an amazing key. ¬†But a lock that is opened by many different keys isn’t worth anything at all.”
Cue my desire to give him a martini facial and poke his eyes out with the plastic olive skewer.
Yet despite my disgust for his sexist point of view, he has a point.¬† While women have been tirelessly shattering glass ceilings and income bracket double standards professionally, there‚Äôs one area where the double standard seems to persist, and that’s in dating.¬† Even as adult women, in the eyes of many men (and women, too), we‚Äôre still held to the binary categorization of “slut” or “nice girl.”¬† So what’s a gal like you to do with this infuriating double standard?¬† Take a cue from some of our celebrity friends and choose to own it, call it out, hide it or accept it.
What do medicine, meditation and Madonna all have in common? ¬†For author Wendy Shanker, they were all supposed to be cures for a rare autoimmune disease that struck her right when she was at the top of her game. ¬†Shanker, who had given advice to thousands of women in her hugely successful first book The Fat Girl‚Äôs Guide to Life, was now searching for someone to help her with the difficulties of dealing with a chronic illness.
