Jeff Goldblum is beside himself with pride and joy upon hearing a very special word from his son. During a screening for the 20th anniversary edition release of Independence Day on Tuesday, the 63-year-old actor said that his 10-month-old son, Charlie hit a big milestone.
“We just flew back today from [Washington,] D.C. to New York, and he was on my lap the whole time,” Goldblum said. “We all went together, and he was sitting on me saying ‘Dada’ for the first time. He kept saying ‘Dada!'”
“I adore being a dad,” he added. “It’s fantastic.”
Goldblum became a first time father on July 4th 2015 at the age of 62. A weird coincidence as Charlie arrived while he was on leave from shooting the 1996 blockbuster’s upcoming sequel, Independence Day: Resurgence.
The star was given a one-week break from filming to fly from Albuquerque, New Mexico, to Los Angeles, where his wife, 33-year-old actress and aerialist Emilie Livingston, was set to give birth.
“That was definitely my most memorable Independence Day,” Goldblum laughed. “Emilie’s due date was fourth of July, but they said it could be two weeks either side.”
Isn’t Charlie the cutest thing you’ve ever seen!
