25. Sheryl Crow
Sheryl Crow was 44 when she adopted her first son, Wyatt, and 47 when she adopted her second, Levi. She decided to start her family on her own because she didn't want to waste time waiting for "the correct order" to fall into place. 

“At this point in my life, I am grounded and peaceful in knowing the order of things,” she told People. “There have been days where I think, ‘I suck as a mom; I can’t do anything right.’

“But at the end of the day, there’s nothing better than family. I’m so blessed.”
