Re: How old was Grandma when she became Grandma?

My mom was 48, almost 49.
My dad had just turned 49 four days earlier.

My partner's mom was 62.
My partner's dad had just turned 59 five days earlier.

My daughter is still the one and only grandchild for both sides.

My grandparents were 50 and 52 when I was born and 46 and 48 when their first grandchild was born.

ETA: I was 28 when DD was born, DP was 32.

46. She had me at 19 (a week or so shy of 20) and I was 26 when I gave birth to DS.

Re: How old was Grandma when she became Grandma?

My first son made my Mom a Grandmother for the first time. She was 53 (almost 54.) My Dad was 59.

My Mom had me at 26, and I had DS1 at 27.

My DAD was 37 when he had me! I don't know how old my grandma was, but I'm assuming she was in her mid-late 50s.

My mom was in her late 40s when I has Asher, and my dad was in his mid 50s.
