Should RHONY’s LuAnn de Lesseps Have a Baby With Jacques at Age 47?

On The Real Housewives of New York Season 5, Episode 3: "Boozy Brunch", LuAnn de Lesseps asked her teenage daughter Victoria how she would feel if LuAnn, at age 47, had a baby with current beau Jacques Azoulay. While it seemed a bit awkward for Victoria, it may have been just as awkward for us.

Rumors have been circling about LuAnn’s desire for another child long before this episode aired on June 18, but they were hard to take seriously until we actually heard LuAnn confirming them on TV.

On one hand, it’s truly exciting to see LuAnn so optimistic about the decision, admitting her age may make the process “not easy.” And if Jacques, who is 10 years younger than LuAnn, wants to have a baby with LuAnn, we’re happy for them as a couple. At the same time, 47 is a tricky age to start thinking about getting pregnant.

According to two doctors interviewed for a CNN story about late motherhood, “It's not that difficult to get pregnant in your late 40s or early 50s — as long as you have two things: someone else's eggs and at least $16,000 or so.”

We want to be happy for LuAnn, but tell us what you think in our poll below. Should LuAnn have a baby with Jacques?

The Real Housewives of New York airs Mondays at 9 p.m. ET/PT on Bravo.
