How old was Grandma when she became Grandma?

Ok - when DH and I first got together and started talking marriage - my mom made this comment : "If you make me a grandma before I'm 40, I will kill you both." But what do ya know.... we're both still walking this earth! And my mother became a grandmother right after turning 38. My grandparents were young - as a matter a fact - they were 37 when I came along as the first grandchild. . . . So I'm just curious about everyone else's family & wat knot. . .

How old was Grandma when she became a Grandma?

My mom was also 37 when DD was born. That is what she gets for having me at 18. (I was only 19 when DD was born though).

DH's Mom was 43.
