The number of babies born to women over the age of 50 has doubled in the last few years.

In fact a total of 154 babies were introduced to the world in 2012 compared to just 69 in 2008.

To celebrate this new age of mature female reproduction, News Shopper thought it fitting to compile its Top 10 list of Women Over 40.

With a good diet and regular exercise these senior celebs could be in with a shout of joining the over 50s yummy-mummy club very soon.

10. Julianne Moore, aged 53

Prolific in the 90s in films such as Body of Evidence and Boogie Nights, Moore has kept herself in incredible nick to the point where she is still considered for raunchy roles in her 50s.

9. Michaela Strachan, aged 47

She may be approaching 50 but this wholesome presenter has kept things Really Wild and still attracts a cult following of male admirers thanks to her sweet and innocent charm on BBC Springwatch.

Strachan, who began her career as Timmy Mallett’s sidekick, has forged a career out of wildlife presenting so knows her chiffchaffs from her willow warblers.

She is the only entry in News Shopper’s top 10 to have entered the World Gurning Competition.

Anyone in their late 20s/early 30s will remember the dreaded words “OK, straight to bed after the Generation Game” from their parents.

Of course part of the disappointment came from having to say goodbye to the lovely long-legged Rosemarie.

As this picture shows, Brucie’s loyal servant is still going strong.

Best known for her sexy role as Felicity Shagwell in Austin Powers, Graham is still a sex-siren who can mix it with the best.

3. Jennifer Aniston, aged 45

After 10 years of hopelessly terrible comedy films, 'Rachel from Friends' finally hit the spot with We’re The Millers.

In a scene which frustrated teenagers and dirty old men appreciated in equal measure, Aniston taught her ‘teenage son’ how to kiss and performed a raunchy lap dance to Mexican drug lords.

Recent years have seen the 45-year-old surpass love-rival Jolie in the 40-plus sex-siren race.
