This reminds me of diary-anniversary. You can can specify %d which
gives you the age.  This is independent of the diary-remind below:

%%(diary-remind '(diary-anniversary 1 7 1997) '(1 2 3 4 5 6 7)) Silvana's 
birthday (now %d years old)

I don't think there is something for months or even monthly difference
though.  But this function could give you hints how to implement this.
