OMG I have SUCH good news to share! Mel Gibson, 61, recently became a father for the ninth time when his girlfriend, Rosalind Ross, 26, gave birth to their son Lars Gerard on Friday, January 20. I would say Mazel tov but we know how Mel feels about the Jews.
It’s truly so inspiring when men in their 50s, 60s, 70s and beyond get to become dads! Men can do anything! While single, sad, desperate women in their 30s and 40s watch romantic comedies, eat Haagen-Dazs, pet their cats, visit sperm banks, and consider freezing their eggs for $10,000 and up, men can purchase a Cialis pill for $41.12 a pop – and soon it will be even cheaper when the generic version comes out later this year! Yahoo for men!
I cried tears of joy just over a month ago when our good friend Mick Jagger, 73 had kid # 8 with his 29-year-old ballerina piece, Melanie Hamrick.
And then last week
Dr. Ian Malcolm Jeff Goldblum, 64, announced that he was expecting a second child with his wife Emilie Livingston, 33.
Meanwhile in New York City a 38-year-old man swiped left on a gorgeous 35-year-old woman. “She probably wants kids like, tomorrow, before her eggs rot. Yuck!”
Other recent additions in the “Ye Olde Dad” club include:
- Kelsey Grammer, 61 when his son Auden James Ellis was born in November 2016. This was his third child with wife Kayte, 36, and seventh child overall.
- Alec Baldwin, 58 when his son Leonardo Angel Charles was born in September 2016. This was his third child with wife Hilaria, then 32, and fourth child overall.
- Billy Joel, 66 when his daughter Della Rose was born in August 2015. This was his first child with wife Alexis, then 33, and second child overall.
It’s so wonderful we’ve overcome so much ageism! Men old enough to be grandfathers and in some cases great-grandfathers (I’m talking to you, Anthony Quinn!) deserve to be fathers just like anyone else!
Oh, and did you hear about Janet Jackson? She just had her first kid at age 50. Ewww!
