When John Travolta and Kelly Preston announced their pregnancy this past week, many were wagging their tongues about Preston's "advanced age."

At 47, she is on the higher end of ages of new mommies and this week, questions are swirling about whether it was IVF, whether it is the "right thing" so soon after losing her son, but either way, she is hardly the first celebrity to fall preggo past 40.

Here are some of the hottest moms-to-be who were over 40:
