What do you think about having a baby in your late 60s? Will he be able to do all those fun things with the child when he is in his 70s?  He seems pretty physically active still, so hopefully this will be a joyus event for the couple.

I am pretty happy that I am done having kids, and could not imagine having one in my late 60s.

What do you think about this?

I was amazed, he portrays fatherhood so wonderfully that I just assumed he had kids! I'm concerned that he won't be around for this child as they grow, at least they have a mom that *should* be around. You just never know what can happen, but I guess you could say that about young parents as well. At least the child will be set financially.

I too thought he had had kids earlier and was just very private as others are or that his kids were so well behaved we didn't hear about them. I hope he lives a long time and keeps up his high energy level that he has shown in movies. Also that he is as great a dad in real life as he is on the screen. I think most kids would rather have a dad than money, but yeah at least they will be set financially for the future.
