Kelly PrestonWhen the news broke that Halle Berry is pregnant with her second child at the ripe old age of 46, most of us reacted with something along the lines of, "Good luck, honey ... hope you're ready!"

Sure, we're happy for her and all, but it's pretty tough for a lot of women to imagine being pregnant (not to mention dealing with a newborn) well into their 40s. But even though Halle admits finding out she is pregnant was the biggest surprise of her life, everything does happen for a reason -- and age is only a number anyway, right?

That seems to be the philosophy of quite a few other women in Hollywood -- like Kelly Preston, for instance.

She and her husband John Travolta welcomed their third child, Benjamin, in November 2010 -- when Kelly was 48 years old. (She has Halle beat!)

Take a look at these photos to see seven more celebrities who got pregnant and had babies in their 40s.
