Rachel Zoe, Skyler


Rachel Zoe is once again the height of Hollywood fashion.

The 41-year-old mother of a 2-year-old son is pregnant with her second child—and the happy news puts her in the extremely stylish company of celebs who opted to get their baby-making on a bit later in life, be it for the first time or the second (or third).

Here are a dozen more stars who had babies at 40 and beyond:

Halle Berry, Nahla


1. Halle Berry: The Oscar winner was 41 when she welcomed daughter Nahla in 2008—and now she's expecting a son at 46 with fiancé Olivier Martinez, proving there's no such thing as being past one's prime when it comes to amour.

Madonna, David Banda, Mercy James

2. Madonna: The Material Girl was five days shy of her 42nd birthday when she welcomed son Rocco, her second child, in 2000. The tireless entertainer then adopted son David when she was 48 and added daughter Mercy to the fold two years later. Her second adoption was finalized in October 2009, when Madonna was a nifty 50.

John Travolta, Benjamin Travolta, Kelly Preston
