Steve Martin has been playing the role of dad in several films, including “Father of the Bride,” “Parenthood,” and evening famously portraying a father of twelve in “Cheaper by the Dozen.” So, it’s surprising that this actor didn’t welcome any children until he was 67. Martin and his wife, Anne Stringfield, welcomed their only child, a daughter, in December 2012.
However, Martin was too focused on his acting career to have kids. Opening up to AARP The Magazine in 2017, the comedian shared that he didn’t think he would have been a great father in his younger years. “I think if I’d had a child earlier, I would have been a lousy father because I would have misplaced my attention on my career,” he admitted.
Being a new dad in his late 60s has its advantages, too. Martin gets to prioritize his family after a successful career in Hollywood. “Oh, it’s fantastic,” the actor told Daily Telegraph (via Vanity Fair), adding, “You have all the time in the world. You’re all set and secure in life, and you’re not building your career, so you have a lot of time.”
