Child star Kim Fields (pictured) gave birth to her second child, a boy named Quincy Xavier, on Tuesday at an Atlanta medical facility, according to People Magazine.
Even though the former “Facts of Life” and “Living Single” star is 44 years old and has raised the brows of a few of her fans because of her decision to conceive at a later age, she tells People Magazine, “If I’m encouraging to anybody…it’s not like I’m the poster child for over 40 and pregnant.”
Motherhood among fortysomethings has become quite common, even though pushing childbirth to later in life can lessen fertility and/or risk disorders.
Although fertility doctors warn about the risks of pushing parenthood too late, there are plenty of reasons to wait, and in Fields’ case, she had experienced two miscarriages prior to giving birth to Quincy.
Fields has been married to Christopher Morgan since 2007, and they already have another son, 6-year-old Sebastian Alexander.
