Steve Martins becomes a father (for the first time) at 67

by Rachel Ogbu


Hollywood funny man, Steve Martin, 67  and his 41-year-old wife, Anne Stringfield, just made public the birth of their baby.

The couple married in a surprise ceremony in 2007 but no additional details were given about the child.

However on Wednesday, The New York Post first reported the story:

The couple are said to have kept the pregnancy a secret, but were recently spotted near their home in Los Angeles with the newborn child, the paper said.

“They worked hard to have the baby,” an anonymous source was quoted as saying.

Martin has starred in comedies like Father Of The Bride and It’s Complicated. He is a former Saturday Night Live cast member and a novelist, musician and comedy writer.

“I played fathers so many times, it’s like being one,” Martin said in a 2003 interview when he was promoting the film “Cheaper by the Dozen,” about a family with 12 kids.
