Steve Martin Welcomes His First Child at 67

There’s a first time for everything – and for Steve Martin that means becoming a father at the age of 67.

The actor/renowned banjo player and his 41-year-old wife, Anne Stringfield, are new parents, Martin's rep confirmed to omg! on Wednesday.

Page Six was first to report the baby news, noting the the child was born back in December.

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

Martin and Stringfield have a history of being hush-hush about big events in their lives. When they tied the knot in 2007, they invited 75 guests to a party at their Los Angeles home – and then surprised everyone by exchanging vows. Although it was quiet affair, it was certainly star-studded. “Saturday Night Live” honcho Lorne Michaels was his best man and guests included Tom Hanks, Diane Keaton, Eugene Levy, and Carl Reiner.

Stringfield is a writer and former staffer for The New Yorker magazine. She and Martin started dating a decade ago.

Martin may have been alluding to his new bundle of joy in a recent post on Twitter. When a fan asked if he would bear her children, the funnyman shot back, “Can’t stand ’em.” In another recent tweet, the new dad talked about being tired.

Martin has been spending less time on movie sets in recent years – his most recent flick, “The Big Year” came out in 2011, and “It’s Complicated” and “The Pink Panther 2” were released in 2009. His focus has been on making music and he’s releasing an album with folk/pop singer Edie Brickell in April.

We suspect he’s also working on some children’s songs… at least around the house.
