Jeff Goldblum did it at age 60 and John Stamos at age 54 — became first time dads at a very mature stage of their respective lives.
In the starting over in the parenting pool club is Mick Jagger who became a dad again to a newborn at 73 and Mel Gibson who welcomed a baby at age 60 and now 68-year old Richard Gere is set to jump into the fray and will become senior dad to a newborn when his new 34-year old wife Alejandra Silva delivers their first child together.
The couple started dating in 2014 and wed earlier this year in a private civil ceremony.
Goldblum and his then 34-year old dancer wife Emilie Livinston welcomed their second child last year, the same year that Jagger and his then 29-year old ballerina girlfriend Melanie Hamrick , around the same time 60-year old Mel Gibson announced that he is expecting a baby with his 26-year old girlfriend Rosalind Ross and after another Stones bandmate 68-year old Ronnie Wood and his 38-year old wife Sally welcomed twins in May 2016.
This will be Gere’s second child. He and ex-wife Carey Lowell share an 18-year-old son together. Silva has a 5-year-old son from her previous marriage. This is Gere’s third marriage.
Congratulations to 73-year old Rolling Stone founding band member Mick Jagger on the birth of his 8th child with his ballerina girlfriend Melanie Hamrick.
“Melanie Hamrick and Mick Jagger’s son was born today in New York and they are both delighted,” a rep for Jagger told New York Post‘s society column “Page Six” on December 8. “Mick was at the hospital for the arrival.”
The rep added that both Hamrick, who is more than 40 years Jagger’s junior, and the baby are “doing well,” and noted, “We request that the media respect their privacy at this time.”
The couple started dating in 2014 after Jagger’s partner of 13 years L’Wren Scott committed suicide in 2014.
Jagger is also a grandfather. He shares children with exes Marsha Hunt, Bianca Jagger, Jerry Hall and Luciana Gimenez Morad.
His children, Georgia, James, Jade, Elizabeth, Lucas, Karis and Gabriel, range in age from 17 to 45. The baby has a 45-year old half sibling in Kari! Wowza!
Jagger is also a granddad to five children and became a great-granddad in May 2014, when his granddaughter Assisi, daughter of Jade Jagger, gave birth to a baby girl.

Man…and we gave ex-NFL player Antonio Cromartie a tough time!
There’s something in the water with those fertile Stones! Fellow band member Ronnie Wood became a father again last month at age 68 when his wife Sally Humphreys had twin girls.
Check out my video of Jagger performing for the first time at the Grammy’s in LA’s Staple Center back in 2011! I successfully snuck a camera in and captured that great historic moment. 🙂
