Jeff Goldblum is now a dad! The 62-year-old welcomed a baby boy with wife Emilie Livingston Goldblum, 32, on Saturday, July 4. On Tuesday, the actor then took to his Facebook page to share the good news with his fans.

“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,” he wrote.

Independence Day now holds even more significance for Goldblum. Not only did he star in the 1996 blockbuster “Independence Day,” but he is also currently filming its sequel “Independence Day: Resurgence.”

Goldblum first announced his wife was expecting during an appearance on “The Late Show with David Letterman” back in January. At that time, he revealed the sex of his baby and a possible name.

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

Looks like only one of those names stuck, as the couple opted for a nature-inspired middle name instead.

Goldblum and his Canadian wife tied the knot in November 2014 in Los Angeles. This is their first child together.
