Actor Steve Martin has reportedly become a father for the first time at the age of 67.
The Father of the Bride star’s wife, Anne Stringfield, 41, gave birth to a baby in December and they have been spotted near their L.A. home with the bundle of joy.
“They’ve had a baby, and how they kept it a secret nobody knows,” a source told Page Six. “Steve’s very private They are thrilled. They worked hard to have the baby.”
Martin and Stringfield, a former editor for the New Yorker, got married back in 2007 in a surprise ceremony at their home in Los Angeles. The ceremony was officiated by Nebraska Senator Bob Kerrey.
Martin was previously married for eight years to actress Victoria Tennant up until 1994, Us Weekly reports.
He has spoke about his strained relationship with his own father, saying “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.”
He added, “In his death, my father . . . did something he could not do in life. He brought our family together.”
