    As if women trying to have babies in their mid-30s and beyond weren't already barraged by finger-wagging about risks and tests to the moon, now there's a new study fear-mongering "older moms" that their age may raise their child's risk of autism. Researchers from the Drexel University School of Public Health in Philadelphia and Karolinska Institute in Sweden created a new autism model that predicts older parents are more likely to have a child who develops an autism spectrum disorder than younger parents. Apparently, the model shows that autism risk grows steadily with fathers’ increasing age, but accelerates with mothers’ age after 30.

    Yep, 30! And here we were thinking all the risks that came with "advanced maternal age" weren't in play 'til 35 ...

    Well, as damning as it all sounds, women who fit the study's description shouldn't panic.

    I swore it would never happen to me because, since I am me, I am in control of such things. Well, that was a flawed theory because, somehow, I have managed to become that dad.

    You know, the one we all hate before having kids of our own. I abashedly submit to you the evidence:

    Johnny Depp can do no wrong by plenty of us who still consider him one of the sexiest men alive. But the 50-year-old actor, who is already father to 14-year-old Lily-Rose and 11-year-old Jack, recently addressed rumors about becoming a father for the third time with fiancee Amber Heard. It was all too perfect timing, considering that rumors are currently swirling about Amber expecting their first child together already. The source: A former flame of the actress, Mark Wystrach, spoke with InTouch and claimed, "She's pregnant already! I saw her three weeks ago. Amber and I dated years ago, but we are still close."

    But while Wystrach's claim remains to be confirmed, Johnny's comments on exactly how many more kids he wants to have were undoubtedly eyebrow-raising ...

    I'm in all kinds of awe of Jennifer Love Hewitt. I love how she talks about how she's in no rush to take the baby weight off and how there are better things for a new mom to worry about ... like when she and her husband Brian Hallisay are going to have family snuggle time with their 4-month-old daughter Autumn. It's also fantastic to hear that Brian is so supportive that Hewitt thinks he should be a doula.

    Yes. He's apparently that good. He's of the I wish all partners would be like him variety. Because we all know how much support we need. We know how hard it is to do this whole parenting thing alone ... or feeling alone. We all know how support actually helps us to be a better mom. This guy ... wow.

    There's a certain little pregnancy treatment Kristin Cavallari needs from her husband, Jay Cutler. No, it's not sciatica massages. It's not anti-nausea acupuncture. And it's not chocolate milkshakes delivered bedside at 3 a.m. I'll tell you what it is: It is sex. "Sex is funny when you're pregnant," Cavallari says in Fit Pregnancy. "Guys get weird about it." Uh-oh, Jay. You're "funny" about pregnancy sex? We sure hope not!

    The video this dad made of his wife's baby bump as it grew throughout her pregnancy blows all others like it out of the water. Not that it's a competition or anything. That said, if it were, this guy wins big. Tom Fletcher is the lead singer of the British band, McFly, and he put all those musical chops to good use in this video he made of his wife and then son titled 'From Bump to Buzz'. 

    Tom took photographs of his wife Giovanna every single day of the nine months that preceded the birth of their son, Buzz. Then, those photos ran as a time lapse opposite Tom serenading her with a new song entitled, 'Something New'. It is basically the sweetest thing I have ever seen in my adult life. And I have watched a lot of cat videos, you guys.

    When you're Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt, six children don't make you exhausted -- they inspire you to have even more children. Yep, if the rumors are to be believed, the Maleficent actress is planning to keep her promise to give Brad another baby by freezing her eggs before undergoing a preventative surgery to remove her ovaries. Angie reportedly knows it's important to Brad to have another child of his own and is open to creating another precious little life through IVF and a surrogate in the event that she has to have a hysterectomy. Is she the bravest woman in the world or out of her mind?

    “I think the ladies will be impressed by my style sense,” President Barack Obama confidently said at a Gap store, where he picked out sweaters for his daughters and a workout jacket for wife Michelle. I must say, Obama made some good choices, but he is the PRESIDENT of the United States; he is responsible for trying to make LOTS of good choices every single day. It's safe to say that he can be trusted in making fashion choices for his girls.

    But you know which man I don't trust to dress his daughter?

    Support. Essential for breastfeeding. And I'm not just talking about a great pillow to help baby be at the perfect angle. I mean support from your partner. Which is why this new campaign is so fantastic -- dads are breastfeeding!

    Well, they would if they could. Hector Cruz and his team are showing support in so many ways with "Project: Breastfeeding," helping to normalize breastfeeding so it's not seen as an obscene act. They are also bonding the family, showing dads how they can support and be educated. They have this campaign to share the knowledge of how to help fathers become a part of the whole process.

    Kudos to new dad and Florida native Zaheer Ali. He and his wife Indira just welcomed a beautiful baby girl -- their first -- into the family. But Ali isn't just to be applauded for the new addition, he has definitely earned a whole other set of props. Why? Because he's the one who delivered his daughter in the absence of a doctor or nurse.

    Sure, we have all heard those stories about folks who didn't make it to the hospital in time. But Ali and his wife's story is a little different -- they were in the hospital, ready and waiting. In fact, more than ready. They'd already met with a doctor who administered a drug to induce labor ... and then left them to see to another mom-to-be.
