Don’t give up hope. I had none, but then, like buses, two came along at once. Both my daughter and my daughter-in-law have had babies during lockdown. I think it’s best not to mention it, just bite your tongue and maybe they’ll come around to the idea themselves. It’s a big commitment and it’s not for everyone, but I have a couple of friends much younger than me who hadn’t planned to have children but suddenly had a change of heart, one at 38 and the other at 42, so you never know.
