Actor, comedian, art aficionado and notoriously private person, Steve Martin, 67, became a father in December. No word on the gender of the child but the baby mamma is his wife, Anne Stringfield, a 41 year-old Tina Fey lookalike and writer for The New Yorker. Isn't that so Steve Martin, to be attracted to a woman from The New Yorker? Stringfield and Martin apparently dated for three years before marrying in 2007. That's right, Steve Martin is not just a surprise dad, he's also a secret husband.
But just getting back to the Tina Fey thing for a moment. Now, we don't want to disrespect anyone here but it's a well-known fact that when Fey first lost weight when she was working on Saturday Night Live and Steve Martin was the guest host that he asked producer Lorne Michaels what her situation was. As in, I want to date that woman. As in, I am attracted to brunettes who wear glasses. As in - well, we hope you get the idea.
And who could forget the time they spent together on 30 Rock? Martin as eccentric billionaire slash criminal genius Gavin Volure, and Fey as the sexually awkward Liz Lemon who thought all her dreams had come true when she found out their physical intimacy was limited to him holding one of her boobs.
