The Celebrity Boomer Baby-Daddy Club
| July 9th, 2015
Life is short! As boomers, we know that time flies making it difficult to squeeze in everything on our to-do list, like back-packing through Thailand, jumping out of an airplane or even having a kid. That last one sounds a bit strange, but many boomer celebrities are waiting until much later in life to have children. Here, we list celebrity baby daddies. Jeff Goldblum just had his first son at the age of 62! Now take a look through to see who else has joined the club and how old they were when they heard the good news!
