What does ウン歳 mean?

6

I recently heard a woman describe herself as a 四十{よんじゅう}ウン歳{さい}. My guess is that it is the Japanese equivalent of "40-something", but I am not sure.

ウン in this context means 'something', so it would be forty-something.

ウン is used as a filler for unspecific mumbling on other occasions also - like here in "unnunkannun".
