Campbell’s announcement is part of a growing trend. More women are choosing to have children later in life, whether naturally or by surrogacy, reports Marketwatch. Three years ago, Senator Tammy Duckworth, then aged 50, the Democratic senator from Illinois, gave birth to a baby girl. She was the first serving U.S. senator to have a baby.
“I’m hardly alone or unique as a working parent,” she said at the time.
Campbell told Evening Standard magazine back in May of 2017 that she has thought about becoming a mother but wasn’t in a rush to make it happen at a specific time.
“I think about having children all the time,” she said at the time. “But now with the way science is I think I can do it when I want.”
Campbell then told WSJ. Magazine in October 2019, as far as having kids went at that time, “Not yet — I’ll see what the universe brings me.”
