"French women are having their children later than ever..."

Given this snippet it's likely they're mostly ethnic French. The concept of postponing child rearing until the mid-30s is a relatively recent development in Western society - a development/lifestyle the Islamic culture would likely reject.

If the statistics showed that French women were having children at an earlier age, then I might suspect it's purely a product of immigrated Muslims.

Not necessarily. Statistics can yield non-intuitive results.

It stands to reason that a Muslim woman having her, e.g., ninth child will be older even than a typical ethnic French woman having her first, thus skewing the statistics.
