August 26, 2011 -- They say children keep you young - and it's definitely the case for Arceli Keh.

America's oldest 'mom' is now 78 but still finds the energy to hang out at the mall with her teen daughter and sing Justin Bieber songs.

She draws the line at theme parks though.

Arceli was 63 when she had her baby Cynthia 14 years on and has revealed she has no regrets.

The infant weighed 6lbs 4oz and was conceived via IVF, 14 years after Arceli went through the menopause.

TODAY'S BOOK SUGGESTION:
Image: Fathers of a Certain Age: The Joys and Problems of Middle-Aged Fatherhood, by Martin Carnoy. Publisher: Fairview Press; 1st pbk. ed edition (May 6, 1997)Fathers of a Certain Age: The Joys and Problems of Middle-Aged Fatherhood
by Martin Carnoy

-- A father and son interview dozens of men in their 40s and 50s to discover why these men have decided to delay parenting or start over, and how they feel about fathering children in late middle age.

The result is a timely assessment of the challenges and rewards older fathers face, as seen through their own eyes and those of their wives and children.

Men are becoming fathers at 40, 50 or more, but there is very little information on what issues they will have to deal with or how to cope with the new life phase.

Lots of anecdotes of from families with either delayed or remarried fatherhood.

It offers glimpses of societal changes as we are all living longer and healthier and as a result, may have children later.

Discusses stepkids, May-December marriages, adoption, fathers-at-home, and more.

About Catherine: I am mom to three grown sons, two grandchildren and two rescue dogs. After years of raising my boys as a single mom, I remarried a wonderful man who had never had a child of his own. Unexpectedly, I found myself pregnant at 49!
Sadly we lost that precious baby at 8 weeks, and decided to try again. Five more losses, turned down for donor egg, foster care and adoption due to my age and losses - we have accepted that there will be no more babies in our house.
