• Born:
A baby, to Steve Martin and his wife, Anne Stringfield. The New York Post reported Wednesday that the comedian became a first-time dad at age 67 sometime in December, and the couple has now confirmed their new parental status — but that’s all we’re getting out of them. Boy? Girl? Name? They’re not saying. Well, good for them, anyway. He and Stringfield, a former New Yorker writer, wed in 2007.
