Italian actress Monica Bellucci is happy she waited till 40 to become a mother because she was not ready for her life to change until then. The "Passion of the Christ" star was 39 when she gave birth to her first child Deva, seven, and 45 when she had her second one, reported a website.
"I worried I wouldn't be ready to give myself. When the first one came, I thought I'd have another really quickly because I knew I didn't have much time left. I was lucky to get pregnant at 44. We didn't have to try for a long time. It was natural," Bellucci said.
