In Change of Heart, Husband Wants a Baby: Ask Noah
5. Allow her to go through a range of emotions and give her more than enough time to process her own thoughts and feelings. Be sensitive to her identity as a woman irrespective of your marriage, and understand the thought of motherhood at an advanced age can frighten any woman.
6. It is not unreasonable to change your mind. It is neither selfish nor sexist to voice this change to your wife. However, in order to not only protect your relationship, but also your own ego, be prepared for her to not want a child at this stage of life. She could be quite content with the life you've created together. She could be completely satisfied with your love, friends, family, her career, etc.
I would then suggest you learn how to be the best uncle ever to your new little niece/nephew! Either way, telling her what you feel is the wisest way to go! Be brave and trust the love you share with your spouse.

Have a profitable and peaceful week,
