This evening on "Piers Morgan Tonight," Dr. Mehmet Oz fills in for Piers Morgan as guest host, anchoring a special discussion on health in America.
Welcoming three all-star guests in the form of Madeleine Stowe, Lisa Loeb and Cyndi Lauper, Oz uses his platform to address issues of aging, reflection, and life cycle.
Speaking to the man who's an actual physician (even though he also plays one on TV,) Loeb reveals that even though many considered it risky, the experience of becoming a new mom again – at the age of 44 – was “pretty amazing.”
"People always ask me about my age and having kids at such a risky age. It’s funny,” said the author and musician, already mom of a 3-year-old daughter, Lyla Rose. “I was trying to get to the perfect place in my life when I had a partner, who's actually my husband, and was ready to have kids and I happened to be in my 40s.”
Although comfortably in her forties, Loeb scored a 37.9 in the real age test, which, according to Dr. Oz, is “a barometer of how you’re doing in life.”
Regardless of the given number, Loeb echoed the positive sentiment of many who age gracefully:
“I don't feel really old,” said the woman behind the iconic hit "Stay." "A lot of women in their thirties and forties talk to me and I think it's so important to find out what's going on with your body.”
