If you’re a mom, you know that being told the more children you have, the slower you age, is one huge laugh! Some of the things that moms endure with children include sleepless nights, lack of a social life, and trying to balance work, family, and any .2 seconds of me-time that you can get. Well, a recent Simon Fraser University study says that apparently all of that equates to slow aging.

“Researchers suggest the number of children born to a woman influences the rate at which her body ages,” the study says, “Health sciences researchers found women who give birth to more surviving children exhibited longer telomeres.” This basically means ‘longer telomeres’ promotes longevity as they are associated with cell replication.

The study was based on the DNA strands in mothers. Despite this study, the head researcher says that they understand the results contradict life history theory, which is basically that giving life to more offspring can accelerate aging. To defend their study, they said that this slow-aging process could be due to estrogen, which increases in a woman’s body during pregnancy and acts as an antioxidant against telomere shortening.

Well…moms everywhere saw this study and all they could do was laugh. Managing Editor and Snapchat Discover Lead Producer Maria Guido even shared her response in an article…
