March 26, 2010 - Actress Monica Bellucci - pregnant at 45 years old - has bared her bump a la Demi Moore for the second time on a magazine cover.

Monica told the Italian edition of Vanity Fair magazine that she decided to reveal all again to show that being a middle-aged mum is not a problem.

Monica said that she had not used medical treatment to fall pregnant.

Maybe it's because my paternal grandmother had a child at 47 years old, but I think I'm just lucky.

by Roy Sokol

-- Roy Sokol offers men a chance to be heard and women a rare opportunity to view the struggle with infertility from a male perspective.

Infertility and Adoption: A Husband and Father's Perspective brings to life the frustration, anger, humor, heartbreak, and sense of helplessness and a mental philosophy learned in Marine Corps training that helps in overcoming the psychological barriers.

While miracles in technology have brought joy to new families, those very advances have placed many couples into a spiraling cycle of hope and heartbreak.

One failed attempt may lead to another, but how do you give up when there is always another doctor, another procedure holding the possibility of your dream for a family?

Roy Sokol has captured the emotional turmoil he and his wife, Elizabeth, endured as they tried to conceive, the years their lives were put on hold, and the excruciating sense of loss and finally great happiness.

He writes too of the couple's journey through the bewildering world of adoption - a path to parenthood fraught with financial, legal, and emotional risks of its own.

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 our 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 there will be no more babies in our house.

    I love seeing stories like this one because it shows women that pregnancy over 40 isn't taboo or even all that uncommon. I had my first baby at age 45 with my own eggs and donor sperm. Blessings to Monica and her baby!
