If you ask any medical professional about reproductive ability, they’re likely to advise against having children into your 50s. But it seems that not everyone listens to this advice. Since Rolling Stones singer Mick Jagger welcomed his eighth child at the age of 72, the crew at Fame10 were curious to know what other celebrities had children at an older age. Several rock stars, comedians, and actors have had children well into their 50s, 60s, and 70s, and we can’t imagine it’s an easy venture. Here’s our list of some of entertainment’s oldest celebrity dads.

16. George Clooney

George Clooney seemed destined to hold the title of Hollywood’s hottest bachelor forever with an aversion to settling down, but it all changed in an instant. After Clooney met Amal Alamuddin he knew he wanted to finally be that family man and on September 27, 2014, he became a married man. Almost three years later, only one month after his 56th birthday the actor became a father for the first time when he and Amal welcomed their twins Ella and Alexander on June 6, 2017.

15. Jeff Goldblum

Actor Jeff Goldblum has been married three times, but it took until his third marriage when he was in his 60s to finally become a father. “I never really particularly passionately wanted children,” Goldblum said in 2008, but in July 2015 when the actor was 62 years old he and his wife Emilie Livingston welcomed their first child son Charlie Ocean. Two years later they expanded their family when they welcomed their second son River Joe on April 7, 2017. Despite his previous statements about having children, Goldblum explained in 2016, “I never seriously considered [having children] until Emilie. I’m at a different place now. I was enthusiastic to marry her and try to have a baby.”
