    I'd say it's probably the most common age!
    Yes, it is okay in my opinion.

    Of course! My hubby is 43, I'm 29 and we're trying for a baby (he has two already from a previous marriage). Age is just a number and you can be a great parent no matter how old/young you are. Why do you ask?

    The poor boy is only 32 missus that's younger than most men I know who become parents.

    If he became a dad now he'd only be 50 when the baby is 18 still young lol

    Men don't seem to grow up till they reach their 30's so I would say its would be a perfect age for him.... blimey just look at Rod Stewart, he gonna be a daddy again....

    I haven't heard that for men, but have heard it about women, but it was women in their forties not thirties.
