The average age in 2020 of having a first child was 28.9yrs. In 2007/8 when you were born, the average uk age for a first-time mother was 27yrs.

So if you’re the oldest offspring, and born in the UK, your mother was marginally older than the average first-time mother at that time. If you have older siblings, then your parents’ ages draw closer to the average age for parenthood.

Current 18 year olds were born in 2002/2003 but this actually makes sense as a middle child I see this as average but this makes sense my only child friends parents were always a little younger than my parents

No not particularly. Fairly average really.

My parents were 34 & 35 when I was born (I'm an only child.) I remember when I was a kid, most of my peers had younger parents than I did.

Nowadays things have changed. More and more people in their 40s are having kids.

I had my kids at 21, 23, 25, & 29, but I wouldn't say that my youngest kid has an "older" mother at all.
