Need more choices in the lower age category like 14-16, 17-18, 19-21, 21-24. Not that I fall in that category but I think this poll will be front loaded

Who knows? I have illegitimate children all over the world. Every father's day the postal delivery of cards is like that scene at the end of Miracle on 34th Street.

The youngest age category is yet to receive a vote. Of course, school hasn't let out for the day...

I was 25, so apparently I can not vote.

I was 26. I feel like we're the youngest parents (by about 5 years) when we go to open school night.

Re: How old were you when you had your first kid?

I was 29 or 30. It hurts my head to try to figure out which.

I just turned 32. Or 33. Help. I was born in 1977 and my birthday was September 1st. 32, right?

My son will be 3 in October.

Ain't got none, don't want none (and I'm in the highest age category listed).

34, and it feels way too old. I feel like I need a nap more than she does.

I sympathize. Yesterday, my five-year-old son got up for school at 7AM, played outside during the recess breaks, ran around with his friends at the after-school child care for an hour, went to Soccer Tots and ran for an hour, took a break for dinner, wanted to go shopping (meaning running around the toy store) for an hour - then we went home.

At home, at 9PM, I insisted it was time for bed. He said, "Daddy, I'm not tired yet".

I'm thinking, "Dear God, I am ..."

Re: How old were you when you had your first kid?

My wife was 19 when I knocked her up. 20 when she gave birth. I was 22 and 23 respectively. I was about 8 months out of college and 6 months into our marriage when we got pregnant. I am fond of saying I knocked up a teenager.

Re: How old were you when you had your first kid?

I was 30 when my first was born, and I'll be 35 when my third is born. I think that will be the last one.

I dated a string of 3-straight 19-year-olds the year I was 35, does that count?

24. I don't think this poll will be as frontloaded as it could be because dvdtalk has more guys than women on it. Maybe I'm wrong, but I think there's probably a 5 year difference or so between the ages of men and women when they have their first child. My ex was 31.
