A woman has a limited window of opportunity to become a mother the old fashioned way. No matter how late women are waiting to have babies, as soon as menopause hits, the odds of becoming pregnant vastly diminish. But men can continue to procreate until they are old and gray. As the BBC reports, "While a woman's ability to reproduce greatly reduces after a certain age, which explains why only 0.3% of mothers in 2011 were over the age of 45, men can go on creating children as long as they can have sex." And celebrity men, of all ages, sure keep themselves busy creating children! Men who happen to be rich and famous continue to become fathers in their 50s, 60s, and 70s. Recently, news broke that George Lucas became a father at the age of 69, which made us wonder about other "late bloomer" dads out there. Check out these other 7 dads who had babies in their later years. -By Sunny Chanel
