Given the younger age of the wife and the fact that he is still young enough that the child could conceivably reach the teen years by the time that we have as the average male life expectancy in the U.S, NLS, I don't find his age that insane. Sure it's a bit older than normal, but it's not as if he's collecting Social Security.
My question in all this IVF madness, is what is the deal with having a kid? I simply don't understand the pressing need to have a child SO bad to go through all this. Further, if you simply MUST have a child, but have a physical inability to do so, why not adopt? The fact that there is a multi-million or perhaps multi-billion dollar cottage industry to help people have kids is lost to me. I genuinely don't understand it.

NLS, a co-worker had a baby and he's 56, wife in mid 40's, baby boy doing fine and being doted on by 5 older kids.
Great outcome for the proud parents of Maycie. Congratulations on your blessed event.
