Rabbeinu Bechayei (to Gen. 29:15) says that Rachel was five years old when Yaakov met her at the well. According to this, then, she was born when her future father-in-law (Yitzchak) was 132 years old (since he was 123 when Yaakov left home, and Yaakov arrived in Charan after studying in Ever's yeshivah for fourteen years).
