Jeff Goldblum welcomes a son at 62

2015-07-08 15:07

Los Angeles - Jeff Goldblum has become a father for the first time.

The 62-year-old actor's wife Emilie Livingston Goldblum gave birth to their son Charlie Ocean Goldblum on Saturday, and announced the news on Instagram on Wednesday.

Jeff shared: "We're so excited to share the wonderful news of the birth of our son, Charlie Ocean Goldblum, born on the 4th of July. Independence Day."

The Independence Day actor first revealed he and his 32-year-old Olympic gymnast wife were going to be having a child during a January appearance on The Late Show with David Letterman.

At the time, he said: "She's three months pregnant. She told me the day before we got married."

But it seems the couple had a change of heart about their son's name as Emilie's pregnancy progressed.

He added: "It's a boy. We picked out a name, as a matter of fact. If it stays - this is our current thinking - [it'll be] Elliott Charlie."

Jeff and Emilie tied the knot in November last year in front of their family and friends at the Chateau Marmont in Los Angeles.

A source close to the actor - who was previously married to Patricia Gaul and Geena Davis - said at the time: "It was a night filled with love, music, and lots of laughs."

Meanwhile, Jeff previously revealed that he was "lucky" to be with Emilie.

He said: "I'm happy as a clam with her. I feel lucky, lucky, lucky."
