Amanda Peet’s Baby Dilemma – How Old Is Too Old?

At a recent launch party for DumbDumb, Amanda Peet shared her thoughts on having another child with Us. The 38-year-old actress has a 3-year-old daughter, Frances, and gave birth to her second child, Molly, in April. She is now keen to try for one more, but her screenwriter husband, David Benioff, would like to wait three years. However, Amanda says "We'll be too old at that point."

It would seem that Peet - who has appeared in movies such as Something's Gotta Give and The Whole Ten Yards - is aware that her biological clock is ticking and must consider the risks of conceiving past the age of 40.

There are many precedents for celebrities becoming moms at an older age - Kelly Preston is pregnant at 47 and Céline Dion is expecting twins at 42. However, Halle Berry - who gave birth to daughter Nahla in 2008 at age 40 - warns "don't look at celebrities who are doing it and think, Oh, it's easy. It's really not."

Dr Alan B. Copperman of Mount Sinai Medical Center points out some of the problems. "At 40 there is only a 10 percent chance of conception and at 45, it's just 2 percent." Add to that the often needed fertility treatments, preterm labor, dangerously high blood pressure and diabetes, and you can understand Ms. Peet's concerns.

 

Amanda Peet Debuts Daughter Molly June!

It's our first glimpse of Molly June!

Amanda Peet
along with her husband David Benioff were spotted with their two daughters - Frankie, 3, and Molly, 5 weeks - strolling in downtown Manhattan on Sunday (May 23). The family-of-four did some quick shopping before heading back to their New York City apartment.

Amanda recently said that Frankie is adjusting well to big sisterhood.

It's been good, she's a little more moody than usual but it's not directed at the baby. It's more like, 'Frankie eat your broccoli,' and she starts screaming. She wants to have a baby in her belly and she wants to breastfeed."

 

Amanda Peet Gushes Over Her Girls

Actress Amanda Peet had a very good excuse for bailing on last month's scheduled visit to the Late Show with David Letterman - she was in labor!

The mom-of-two made up for her last minute absence by appearing on the talk show earlier this week, though she clearly had babies on the brain.

Struggling to recall the plot of her new film Please Give,, Amanda said, "I have a foggy brain right now... Oh my gosh. I have no business being here!"

She had plenty to say when talk turned to her girls, though. Revealing that her 3-year-old daughter Frances Pen is still adjusting to being a big sister to little Molly June, she explained, 'It's been good, she's a little more moody than usual but it's not directed at the baby. It's more like, 'Frankie eat your broccoli,' and she starts screaming. She wants to have a baby in her belly and she wants to breastfeed."

Amanda Peet Expecting Second Child!

Amanda Peet is expecting her second child with her husband of three years, screenwriter David Benioff, Us reports.

In 2007, the couple welcomed daughter Frances "Frankie" Pen, whom Peet named after her mother, Penny.

The 37-year-old 2012 star has been quite outspoken about childhood vaccines. "Frankly, I feel that parents who don't vaccinate their children are parasites." This controversial statement was later followed by a personal apology although she still strongly supports childhood immunizations.

Peet recently said it's important to take care of yourself in order to be a great parent:

You have to put your oxygen mask before you put on others’. It’s a good metaphor for parenting, but it’s really hard to do sometimes. A lot of women feel that if they’re exerting energy in different areas of their life or are really passionate about other things, it’s automatically detrimental to the child.”

Congratulations to the Peet-Benioff family!

 

Amanda Peet: It’s Important To Have A Sense Of Silliness

Amanda Peet, who currently stars in the blockbuster 2012, graces the December cover of Self magazine. The 37-year-old mother of one opens up about her 2-year-old daughter Frankie, her mission to get every child vaccinated by the age of 2, and her thoughts on body image in Hollywood.

On parenting her daughter Frankie: “You have to put your oxygen mask before you put on others’. It’s a good metaphor for parenting, but it’s really hard to do sometimes. A lot of women feel that if they’re exerting energy in different areas of their life or are really passionate about other things, it’s automatically detrimental to the child.”

On her work with Every Child By Two, a nonprofit group that strives to have all children vaccinated by age 2: "This is about children's health. This is about the future of our children's health. It's about what happens when you become complacent and you're not vigilant as a community. It's about the fact that I don't think parents feel like they're part of a community anymore. We all have to make."

 

Amanda Peet’s Daughter Saved Her From Doomsday Depression

In the new doomsday flick 2012 Amanda Peet plays a mom trying to save her kids from the end of the world. In reality, the 37-year-old actress says she has more immediate concerns - like "global warming and wars," and making sure her daughter Frances Pen, 2 1/2, stays on the right path.

"I have a daughter, and it helped to come to her after a day of filming one disaster after another because she was just wanting me to read The Cat and the Hat or whatever," Amanda tells Parade magazine. "That definitely kept me from getting too depressed. I'm trying not to think about what the world will be like when she grows up. I think more about when is she going to start drinking and wearing a g-string and how can I stop those things from happening."

Speaking of g-strings, Amanda also opened up about baring all on screen - and why she refuses to be a slave to the gym.

"I have an inner conflict. I'll be at the gym and I'll start thinking, 'What am I doing? I'm going to sag no matter what I do.' I've certainly taken my clothes off on camera, but you have body make-up and special lighting," she says. "I mean, someone with a figure like Jennifer Aniston has a trainer, a cook spinning out some version of the latest diet, and probably a stop at the tanning salon. Then teenage girls go, 'God, I wish I could look like that.' Maybe they wouldn't if they knew what it took.'"
