not hostility. It's nice that they have enough money to do what they are doing.

Just a few on here making it "ugly". I wonder if the uglies is mostly a judgement about the Travoltas choice of Religion.
Welcome to America, freedom of Religion etc. (yes and freedom of speech (opinions) too)

Now, I am going to get my old rickety bones out of my rocker and take my wonderful young son to practice before I keel over and die.

44 year old man-regretting not having kids
so what? men don't have biological restrictions to having kids later. There are plenty of men in their 70s fathering biological kids just fine. The risks are much much much lower for men. Contrary to what some feminists proclaim here on citydata the risks for women in their late 30 is elevated and over 40 it is very high.

wait, I'm confused. I thought the issue was the idea that an older parent might die when the child was still young? supposedly, KP used frozen embryos harvested when she was in her 30's. if the issue is health related, than it may not even apply to KP. if the issue is parents dying while their child is still young, then men, according to the arguments here, have no business siring kids so late in age. obviously, no one really complains when older men have kids (b/c historically, men are seen as "virile" and manly if they can keep impregnating women well into their senior years)

it's not a double standard. It's called biology. I'm not advocating 70 yo men father kids but there are risks to a 44 yo mom that don't apply to a 44 yo dad. that's just the way it is. Before you get all hysterical and say "I thought it was about the parents dying" - it is about that too. In the Travolta/Preston case, dad is way older. 12 years older than 44. It's the combination of their ages that I have a problem with. If John and Kelly were both 44 I wouldn't have a big issue. But neither of them are.

I am not really worried about Kelly being pregnant at her age. They have the money for her to have the best medical care available. The frozen embryos were from when she was younger, so there is not so much the worry about as far as the embryos being from "old" eggs. They are older parents, so what? I would rather see an older couple that has the money and patience and parental wisdom, have a child, than some 15 year old in high school with no money, no way to care for their child, no knowledge about how to raise a child, no maturity, letting her parents raise the child or her do it from high school daycare.

I know right. To sit and say, btw, that baby isn't her's because, they adopted or donor eggs. Wow! If, the kid is in their home, loved and raised by them. Hello, it's their child.

The OP is judging people, because their methods of having children. Maybe, saying don't congratulate them, because it's not theirs.

That person needs to get a life!
