How does Lucy Liu (54) feel about having become a mother so late? The Charlie’s Angels actress welcomed her first baby into the world in 2015. Her son Rockwell Lloyd (7) was born with the help of a surrogate mother. Lucy was 46 years old at the time – today she is over 50 and her son is just seven. Had she planned offspring for a long time?

“I didn’t have a plan. […] I haven’t thought much about it. I didn’t do much research, I just pulled the trigger”the actress said about her decision to become a mother so late in an interview with The Cut. If she thinks too much about something, she doesn’t do it: “It’s better for me to feel something and just do it. A lot of people read books about raising children. I didn’t do any of that. I did told me, ‘When the kid comes, I’ll just find out.'”

In a previous interview with People had Lucy already revealed why she chose surrogacy at the time. “It just seemed like the right option to me because I was working and didn’t know when to stop”the New York native explained.
