    Question a daughter of 5 year old

    Hi everyone!

    I wonder if anyone could help me figuring out the case below.
    Is that possible to say " I have a daughter of 5 year old" instead of saying "I have a 5 year old daughter"?

    Thanks in advance!

    You could say you have a daughter of five years (though it's not nearly as natural as "I have a five-year-old daughter" or "I have a daughter who's five [years old]") but not your suggestion.
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.
