Celebrities are like fine wine: they get more potent with age. Steve Martin is a new dad at the age of 67, the New York Post reported. This is Martin's first time being a father. His wife, a 41-year-old actress named Anne Stringfield, actually had the baby back in December, but the news is just now coming to light, the Post claims. “They’ve had a baby, and how they kept it a secret nobody knows,” an anonymous source told the Post.

Martin married Stringfield in 2007, according to The Miami Herald
