Which over 60 actor just became a Dad for the first time on a very coincidental day?

He’s been in some of Hollywood’s biggest films but this is one real life role he has never had before – at the ripe age of 62. And the new bub was born on a very special day as well!

Jeff Goldblum is best known for starring in the Jurassic Park movies, and now is the proud father to Charlie Ocean Goldblum, born on the 4th of July.

Not only is the 4th of July a special day for Americans, it also is very coincidental considering Jeff starred in the first Independence Day flick, and is currently filming the sequel.

Over the years, Jeff has been the victim of a number of hoaxes that have incorrectly reported his death. Every time he has personally confirmed that he is alive and well.

He joins the ranks of other over 50 first time daddies, including Steve Martin, Woody Allen, David Letterman, Michael Douglas and Hugh Grant.
