4. Susan Sarandon
Susan Sarandon had her three children later in life, where she gave birth to her first daughter, Eva Amurri, at 39, then had her son Jack Henry three years later at 42, and her last one, Miles Guthrie, at age 45.

Sarandon said that when she became pregnant each time, people tried to tell her that her career would topple because of it. She never believed it. "I had my first baby at 39 and my third at 45, and with each child, [people were] like, ‘Are you crazy? Don’t!'"

But for Sarandon, that was the perfect time for her to become pregnant. She told The Guardian that at that point she hit her stride in her career, and was able to take a couple of years off guilt and stress free to be with her littles. "Because I was old – 39 when I had my first and 45 when I had my third – and my profession had been demystified. I thought that being with my kids, at that time, was so much more interesting.”
