In brief: Quite rare

It can happen but is rare.
It may affect people who have collagen disorder. Collagen helps bind tissues together and defines the structure of organs. In combination with smoking, which also interferes with healing, someone that age could develop an abdominal aortic aneurysm. A form of collagen disorder called marfan's syndrome can cause an aneurysm of the upper (thoracic) aorta near the heart.

Yes but quite rare.
There could be an unexpected inherited disorder of the vascular arterial wall such as marfan's disease. It would be uncommon and unexpected.
