There’s a baby-on-the-way for Jason Schwartzman!

The Rushmore star shared the happy news during a Wednesday visit to Jimmy Kimmel Live!, revealing that he and wife Brady Cunningham expect their first child in December.

Fatherhood is already having a big impact — in at least one obvious way. As a child, Schwartzman, 30, recalls being routinely embarrassed by his newborn baby photos, in which his own dad sported a sizable mustache.

“I would show my friends, ‘Look at my father’s mustache, how terrible is that?!'” he recalls with a laugh.

Now, the actor says, it’s his turn to repay the favor!

“I decided to grow out this mustache, so when we take photos — my boy or girl, whatever it is — they’ll be embarrassed,” he explains. “So I am now thinking of ways to embarrass my unborn child.”

Schwartzman and Cunningham, a fashion designer, wed in July 2009.

I must say I thought he was in disguise for a moment…it almost looks like it’s not his own face…anyway, congrats to the family!

M- He DOES almost look as though he’s wearing those disguise glasses with attatched nose and mustache that you can get at party stores and a few other places!🙂

Autumn on

LOL! What a reason to grow a moustache! Doing it just so itll embarass his future child someday! Talk about a great sense of humor and a way to bring back a retro style..lol! (I wonder how much Jason actually looks like his dad now, from that bygone era of the late 1970s – early 1980s?)

This is very sweet, like paying homage to his late father. Very cute, very silly.
