Parenthood comes at different times for different people, and for some it doesn’t come until later in life. Though Steve Martin was the famous ‘Father of the Bride’ in the classic hit movie, in real life he hadn’t actually experienced fatherhood. Martin may now be 67, but instead of becoming a grandfather, he has just become a father for the first time. At least, that is what the reports circulating are saying.
In an article dated, Wednesday, Feb. 13, Page Six of the NY Post reported that they have exclusively learned that Martin and wife Anne Stringfield, 41 welcomed a baby in December.
The couple has been spotted near their LA home with who is believed to be their new addition.
“They’ve had a baby, and how they kept it a secret nobody knows. Steve’s very private,” a source said.
“They are thrilled. They worked hard to have the baby,” the source added.
Martin isn’t the first to become a Dad at an older age. Rod Stewart and Clint Eastwood were 66. Charlie Chaplin was astoundingly 73.
At this point, there hasn’t been any comment from the family. However, who can blame them for wanting to keep their little one away from the paparazzi?
It is hard to determine which accomplishment deserves a bigger congratulations: The baby, or the fact that they were able to keep the pregnancy private in an ‘obsessed with the celebrity baby bump society?’
