Whoa daddy! It’s a happy time for Steve Martin, as the comedy god has recently become a father for the first time…at the age of 67! His wife Anne Stringfield apparently gave birth way back in December, and the pair have managed to keep their bundle a secret til now.
“They’ve had a baby, and how they kept it a secret nobody knows,” an insider told the New York Post. “Steve’s very private. They are thrilled. They worked hard to have the baby.” Despite starting to get up there in years, we have no doubt that the wild and crazy guy will be one hell of a wild and crazy dad!
But wait, there’s more! Fellow laugh riot/rival to his SNL hosting record Alec Baldwin also has some baby news. The artist forever known in our hearts as 30 Rock’s Jack Donaghy has taken the opposite route as Martin, and made a very public announcement that he and new wife Hilaria Thomas are expecting their first child as a couple. He went on Extra, where Hilaria is a correspondent, and the pair broke the news together.
“We’ve having a baby. [It] was a surprise, a wonderful surprise,” she gushed. And it really was a surprise. Apparently Baldwin didn’t even know she was taking a pregnancy test until he heard some bathroom yelling. “There’s a scream I heard, which is a scream normally reserved [for] if there’s a spider in the house. It really is the most amazing thing. I’m lucky.”
Alec will be turning 55 in April, be we have no doubt that he and buddy Steve will be some seriously great (and seriously) amazing dads. Just think of the play dates! Although they might be “getting up there,” age really is just a number. Plenty of dudes have done the dad thing late in life.
