Jeff Goldblum Welcomes Son Charlie Ocean

07/07/2015 at 07:15 PM ET

Jeff Goldblum is a dad!

The actor is a first-time father after welcoming a baby boy with wife Emilie Livingston Goldblum, he announced Tuesday on his Facebook page.

“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,” Goldblum, who’s currently in production for Independence Day: Resurgence, wrote.

Goldblum, 62, first revealed he was going to be a dad during a January appearance on The Late Show with David Letterman.

“It’s a boy. We picked out a name, as a matter of fact,” the Portlandia star shared. “If it stays — this is our current thinking — [it’ll be] Elliott Charlie.”

(Looks like they decided to stick with one of the two!)

In February, the couple stepped out for the Oscars, where the contortionist and aerialist, 32, kept her baby belly under wraps in a black and cream-colored gown.

The Goldblums were married last November in Los Angeles.

I am a July 4th baby. It is the best day for a birthday! I always say, I was born because of a BANG! Congratulations.

Congratulations. Not sure of her age, but she looks really young. .

Love the name – congratulations!

He looks like the grandfather.😦

Free Speech on

Normally the large age difference would creep me out…but there’s something about this couple that just seems sincere. Too bad he’ll only get 20 good years with his kid but Jeff will make a great dad. These two seem like they’re in love and I hope their marriage lasts…which isn’t easy to happen in Hollyweird.

Jen DC on

Hey, little angry guy! Congratulations.

Catherine on

I agree with you, Free Speech. She is a lot younger than him but they seem very genuinely in love. And I think Jeff will be a good and really fun dad!

martina on

Awww, his wife is just adorable! So is the baby of course, lol. I wonder why Goldblum, who’s a known ladies man, waited for so long to start a family. But to each their own. Congrats to them! Love the name too.

Tia on

It looks like his great daughter had a baby and he came to welcome her.

Terri on

Kinda Creepy.

J on

I can’t believe she’s 32! It blows my mind that he’s 30 years older than her. Not that there’s anything wrong with that. I was just shocked… Anyway, congrats to them.

Eve on

Sweet family photo, but who the heck wears a suit for their child’s birth?

Wowsers on

Love how excited he is! Congrats.

JJ on

I love you Jeff I really do but that picture looks a granmpa hugging his daughter who just gave birth to his first grandchild. That does not look like a couple who just had a baby together it’s like a generational picture of a family.

Eve, if you look at the white board, the date is 7-6-15. Emilie and Charlie were probably discharged yesterday. Congratulations to the Goldblum family.

Ivy. on

Curious to know how much he weighed. That looks like a big baby!

Annie on

Congratulations Goldblum family!! The baby is adorable!!

Rivka on

Lovely photo. So glad Emilie isn’t afraid to show her post birth body. They look so happy, and the baby is a cutie, even for a newborn, hehe.🙂

Interesting on

Wow – 30 year age difference. That is extreme. If he had a job like Hugh Hefner, people would be screaming that he is a creeper. But since he’s handsome and funny Jeff Goldblum the actor it is A-OK. Kind of interesting.

Roll on

Look the face. He is about to cry LOL

ladyforjesus on

What a great guy. See the way he is cradling his baby and his wife. This guy is one in a million. Congratulations on the birth of this precious gift from the Lord God.

love on

Always loved Jeff! Never knew he never had kids, oh well: better late than never and about the age difference: it’s none of their business what anyone thinks about it:)

Lily on

Usually an age difference would bother me just a bit, but these two look wonderful together and love seems to be pouring out of this picture.

Lyanna on

It looks like a 3 generation shot.
