I have the exact opposite experience; almost all of my friends, family - and myself - have a long-term relationship, get 1, 2 or 3 kids + a house AND a busybody of an accountant who keep harping about the unfortunate consequences of having kids + property and no marriage certificate if accidents should happen.
And THEN we all got married

Shouldn't be surprised if statistics would show that it is actually safer to be born by an 'older' mum - because of the focus on the mother's age and all the precautions that are automatically taken. I think I've heard that most of the children with Down's syndrome born today are born by younger mothers where tests are not automatically taken.

Oh I think it's wonderful news and I wish both the countess and her baby good health and happiness! There are more risks involved in pregnancy the older you are but she's in such great shape which is a huge mark in her favor. I don't know if they planned it or not and as far as her being pregnant at her own wedding who gives a monkey's?

I am ecstatic for her!

I think she has to be pregnant...the engagement and wedding seemed very hasty and Alexandra and Martin probably wanted to do the honourable thing...I think her daughter will be born in November 2007

So, does this rumor have any legitimacy or its just speculation to justify why a title, well off woman would marry a man 1/2 her age with little income to speak off?

Maybe because she loves him?

I gues that when i make that kinde of statemend i am going to bashed inher
My mother was the same age as Alexander when she had me. She just turned 61 (and trust me she looks 55) this past weekend and I'm going to be 21 in 2 months. And aside from back surgery in 2005 she is in excellent health. So I don't see how u can say its not fair to the child. Alexandra looks as though she is in good health and takes good care of herself. I mean yea
after 35 the pregancies are considered to be high risk but I'm sure if she's careful and follows her doctors orders everything will be fine with her.

Princess Mary is 35 and about to have her second child. When Christian is 20 Mary will be 53. And when her second child (hoping its a girl) is 20 Mary will be 55.

O/T ... does anybody have a clue as to why it fell apart with Joachim? Like, which side first felt incompatible? It must have fallen apart before Frederick and Mary married, that much is clear to me.

There is nothing wrong having a baby at the age of 42, I had my daughter at the age of 41 and I am happy as can be. Congratulations to both of them.

Only Joachim and Alexandra know the reasons for the divorce. Here is the thread with discussion about the divorce http://www.theroyalforums.com/forums...hlight=divorce

My boss' wife had her first child at age of 44 and the second last year at age of 48. You cannot call people in their 40s old. Alexandra is far from being old and she still can have children.

At age 43, no matter how beautiful, healthy, or titled the mother is, there is a 1 in 3 chance of early miscarriage and about a 1 in 40 chance of Down's syndrome.
If she is pregnant, I wish her all the luck in the world.

If she's expecting, then my heartfelt and warmest congrats! I hope she have a safe and smooth delivery.

She's no longer part of the royal family, she's a private citizen and she can do as she pleases. We shld be happy for her!

Princess Caroline of Hannover had her 4th child in her 42s and half and little Alexandra is a wonderful healthy girl.
The risk is higher if you have your first child late. but for Alexandra it would be her 3rd, so the risk is lower.
As regards Down syndrom, very reliable tests exist, you can be checked in the 4th month, its a situation under control. And Down could also arrive when woman is on her 35s, so at which age you should stop having children?

I wish Alexandra all the best, she is a very class lady.
And I wish for Felix ands Nikolai, a "little princess"

I thought they might be proud parents before 2007 was over! If Princess Caroline can do it and not raise a ruckus, then so can Countess Alexandra. Royalty are usually held up to higher standards than the rest of the population. I hope it's a girl (and I wish the title was hereditary, similar to the Duchess of Alba in Spain).

According to my genetics professor,
women older than 40 have 1% risk to give birth to a baby with Down's Syndrome.
But 70% of the Down's Syndrome babys were born by mothers younger than 35 or 30. (I can't remember exactly, but anyway younger mothers.)

The title "Countess of Frederikborg" is personal to Alexandra. It is not hereditary.
