Steve Martin has fathered his very first child ... at the ripe age of 67-YEARS-OLD ... the actor has confirmed.

The "Pink Panther" star's 41-year-old wife Anne Stringfield gave birth to the kid back in December ... so says the New York Post.

Steve wouldn't be the first celebrity dad to father a kid in his 60s ... Rod Stewart did it (66 years old) ... so did Pablo Picasso (67) and Clint Eastwood (66).

And ... Charlie Chaplin had a kid when he was 73.

Congrats.

Congrats - I wish everyone could experience being a parent, if they want that, but at least the kid will know his dad for maybe 10 to 15 years if he is lucky.

Kudos to them for keeping it private. Hopefully that kid will have an awesome life to go along with his/her awesome father.

If "it" will still point & shoot, you've got a chance at being daddy.

I like him, But, really not very fair to the child, who will have a grampa for a. Dad in terms of energy. This strikes me as one of those things that Just because you CAN, doesn't mean you should!

Only a self centered Ahole becomes a dad at 67, he will have a 10 year old with a 77yo dad and will probably have to grieve over his loss at a young age

All these old queens having children in their 60's and 70's SO SELFISH. Mr. Tony Randall, father at what? 80?.......sickeningly selfish. Yeah, like we ever thought you were straight anyway!

Why in heavens name would you have a child at 67 years old? Very unlikely he'll see the child's 20th birthday. I see it as rather selfish on the part of the parents. Steve Martin is a funny guy, but he's more a Grandpa than a dad at his age. Poor kid.

Its not wise to father children at that age they have a higher tendency to get schizophrenia. I hope the baby is healthy and has a healthy life.

The NY Post does NOT say that Steve's wife gave birth. It just says they had a baby in December. There's no way they could have kept it a secret if she was pregnant. They used a surrogate mother (another woman carried the baby for them).

If sense were common everyone would have it.    

I'm happy for the parents, but don't any of these people give a thought to the child's future? Don't they think that one day the kid, as an adult, will want to share all the joys and drama in life that other people get to share with their parents? Anthony Quinn, Tony Randall, Marlon Brando, etc.
Jeez Louise! Please think before you procreate!
