(Newser) – It's surprising enough that Steve Martin is a first-time dad at 67, but perhaps more surprising is that he and wife Anne Stringfield, 41, actually became parents in December and managed to keep it secret until now, the New York Post reports. In other celebrity baby news, Alec Baldwin is getting a second chance to not refer to a child of his as a pig. Yes, the actor is expecting a baby with new wife Hilaria Thomas Baldwin this summer, the couple announced in an interview with Extra (where Hilaria is apparently a "lifestyle correspondent").

The baby may not be a pig, but Baldwin did initially think it was a spider: "There’s a scream I heard, which is a scream normally reserved if there’s a spider in the house," he says. "So then I hear that scream again, but it was not a spider." Turns out his wife had taken a pregnancy test without telling him (she calls the pregnancy "a wonderful surprise") and was screaming with joy. Adds Baldwin, "We can joke all about it, but it's honestly the most amazing moment. If I really shared with you how I felt, I would probably burst out crying."
