Well, my great-granny had her last at 49, but she had eight more before that, so I think that changes things somewhat.
It also annoys me in a way, because leaving having a baby until 50+ is just not an option without difficult and often painful medical interventions for most women (and a donor egg). I don’t really have a problem with having or being an older parent, but normally if your Mom is 50 when you are born, you can be damn sure that she at least really, desperately wanted to have you.
In so many ways, it would have been better if they’d just got over the baby thing that season (3? 4?) when they were going to have a kid together through insemination.
That way they could have mostly Invisible-Emma’d the kid like on Friends and said kid would probably be about 20 now and we’d be spared all this garbage. Plus, if that had happened, the original ending would never have been what it was in the first place.
I thought that by bringing this show back they were trying to fix what once went wrong, Quantum Leap style, not make all the same mistakes all over again. Makes the whole thing such a waste of time.
