Steve Martin A First-Time Dad At 67 [Report]

Steve Martin a first-time dad at 67

Steve Martin has become a first-time dad at the age of 67.

According to the New York Post, Martin and his wife Anne Stringfield, 41, welcomed their new addition in December.

“They’ve had a baby, and how they kept it a secret nobody knows,” a source told Page Six. “Steve’s very private.” The source added, “They are thrilled. They worked hard to have the baby.”

Martin and Stringfield, who is a writer and former staffer for The New Yorker, were married in 2007 after dating for three years. The ceremony took place at Martin’s Los Angeles home and was presided over by Nebraska Sen. Bob Kerrey. Saturday Night Live creator Lorne Michaels acted as best man, and guests included Tom Hanks and Father of the Bride co-star Diane Keaton, who were told they were attending a party.

Martin was previously married to actress Victoria Tennant from 1986 until 1994.

According to the Daily Mail, it was Stringfield who encouraged Martin to write his 2007 autobiography, Born Standing Up: A Comic’s Life. In the book, he writes about his relationship with his own father, who passed away in 1997 at the age of 83.

“My father’s attitude toward my show-business accomplishments was critical. After my first appearance on Saturday Night Live … he wrote a bad review of me in the newsletter of the Newport Board of Realtors where he was president,” Martin wrote. The elder Martin also said, “I think Saturday Night Live is the most horrible thing on television,” and said his son was “no Charlie Chaplin.”

However, in 2008, Martin wrote, “In his death, my father, Glenn Vernon Martin, did something he could not do in life. He brought our family together.”

A representative for Steve Martin declined to comment, and the actor had yet to confirm the news on Twitter.

    Congrats to him! My father became a father again at 52 and i am very happy he did otherwise i would not have my talented, smart and beautiful baby sister. Well, she is not a baby (she is in college) so it is all up to tht person.

    I think that is very selfish. At 67, his child will be mourning him before becoming a teenager.

    What a negative Nellie you are! I don't think its selfish at all. He now has time in his life to be a "real" dad, not just someone who has donated his sperm and goes off to do his own thing. I'm hoping and praying Steve lives well into his 90's! Therefore, at 87, his child would be 20 years old!

    not necesary,we don't know when Jesus will take him home,I Pray he lives until he's ninty,she will be of age and will have been with him for years. Only Jesus knows how long he will live,it was a Gift from God above, he knows wha he's doing, may GOD BLESS THEM BOTH..hAVE A WONDERFUL LIFE…

    Congratulations Steve and Anne on your new bundle of joy! Do I think 67 is too old? No, not this day and age. Will he look like the grandfather instead of the father? Maybe, but who cares. Steve Martin is in great shape and has a wife that will be there with him to raise this beautiful baby!

  7. Elaine Fontana

    Congratulations to both of you. 67 is not too old to become a father and the child will bring much happiness to your life. You are blessed with energy and good health, and you will have a number of years to enjoy the family. Many best wishes.

    I'm sorry but, although I am happy for Steve Martin, I can't help thinking but think of the double standard that exists here. How many reports have we all heard of women wanting to become mothers again or for the first time and give birth at 55, 62, or older and get ridiculed? I hear it all the time how the woman is selfish to having said child in such an advanced age she would not get to see her child grow up she could croak at any moment, or how "gross" it is. 67 is not old in my opinion as long as you're up for the task, I would just like support being given to both genders.

    Poorly written article. There is no mention of the baby's gender nor birth date. Does the child have a name or is Steve Martin so secretive that he hasn't told the child his /her name yet? Congratulations to the happy parents.

  10. Pam Gessler

    If he's fathered a child, he's obviously not too old to be a father! Good incentive to live a health lifestyle and pray to live a long life!

  11. Pam Gessler

    I never hear those comments, but you're right. No matter who is having the baby, they are blessed!

  14. Susan Sturdivan-Brownlee
