Dear Men 50+ Like Alec Baldwin and Al Pacino, It’s Not a Flex To Have Babies So Old
It is incredibly selfish, not to mention biologically not a great idea.
Listen up, old men! The antiquated notion that men can have babies until they die, needs to stop.
I have noticed recently, with the advent of science and desperate, young women gold diggers, men 50+ are starting or expanding their families.
So who are these rich men? The most famous men that come to mind are Alec Baldwin, Robert DeNiro, and Al Pacino. And I’m sure there are numerous more.
According to the article:
Al Pacino, 83, is welcoming a new baby with 29-year-old girlfriend Noor Alfallah, while 79-year-old Robert De Niro just introduced the world to his seventh child, his first with decades-younger partner Tiffany Chen. Pacino and De Niro may be able to have children, but their advanced age does make one wonder: do men have biological clocks that impact their fertility?
I won’t even get into the fact that he impregnated a 29-year-old. Or that he is 83. Or that this all screams gold digger. That is for a future article.
For me, men 50+ are pushing it when it comes to having children. And obviously for 50+ women too. But for them, it takes a surrogate, luck, or super-advanced medical intervention for that to happen.
If a man is 50, then by the time his kid reaches adulthood, 18–20, the man will be 70. With the average life span of men being 77 in America, their child will be a half orphan (assuming the mother is still alive) at age 27. Even if the father is in good health, there are many factors in this pandemic society like Long Covid which will also shorten life spans.
Not to mention, the child will most likely miss out on having grandparents. If we go by averages, a 50-year-old man’s parents (if they are both still alive) are probably at least 80 years old. The odds of that child knowing either grandparent are slim to none.
So not only does the child miss out on having an energetic, healthy father, they miss out on grandparents, aunts and uncles, etc.
