Luckily for men, their age is usually not a determining factor for when they have children. Some celebrity guys choose to wait to have babies until later in life, while others became dads again when they were much older. A lot of fathers put off having kids because of their careers or because they hadn’t found “the one” yet, while others remarried after failed relationships only to welcome more kids with their new partners.
These famous dads have embarked on their fatherhood journey and have embraced being the dads to their little bundles of joy in their 40s, 50s, and some even in their 60s. These papas are showing that love and being present is all you need to be a good father. There’s no real timeline on when a person should become a parent, and these guys are proof of that.
