So I searched came up with nothing.

but

How old exactly was each Primarch before the Emperor stopped by to say:"Hey, you're my son, come with me, I have your Legion ready"

Therein lies the question, mainly 'when were each of the Primarchs discovered'? There are plenty of threads with this discussion if you search it... an incredibly long (13+ pages) thread even bounces back and forth with a relatively official list released by someone in GW. On the other hand, while we may have a list of who was discovered first, I don't remember seeing anything indicating something like, "Horus was found XX years after his disappearance from the Emperors secret gene lab." More like relative dates into the GC.

Given the nature of the warp its impossible to tell how long each primarch had been on their respective planets for before the Emperor found them. But if we are going off of the Black Library Horus Heresy Novels, then in Unremembered Empire it is said that the Lion is the oldest of the Primarchs due to him being 'First' to be created.

Its one of the reasons why Papa-Smurf looks up to and envies him.
