CINCINNATI - Ideally, the majority of Americans think that women should start having children by age 25.

Slate reports that  fifty-eight percent of the  more than 5,000 people surveyed by a new Gallup poll think women should have kids in their late teens or early twenties.

Only 43 percent of those surveyed think men should have children by age 25, though.

According to the poll, both men and women agree that women should start having babies young, while most women say the ideal age for men to have children is 26 or older.

You can take a look at the complete poll here.
