Steve Martin Jokes About Baby Daughter’s Name: “Conquistador Is a Statement”
Well, if Steve Martin did name his daughter Conquistador, they could just call her “Connie” for short. It wouldn’t be that weird. But chances are that's not quite what they're calling her.
The comedian and his wife Anne Stringfield welcomed a baby girl two months ago. Yep, Steve is a first-time dad at 67! He was on The Late Show with David Letterman on April 23 and said everything is "going great" with the new addition. Dave asked about the baby's name, and Steve kept things light.
"We've thought about the name quite a bit," Steve said (via Us Weekly). "Conquistador. What do you think? I didn't want to go with one of those Hollywood weird names. Conquistador is a statement." Oh, you! He also put a baby monitor on Dave's desk, saying the kid was back at the hotel "and I'm a responsible dad."
Always the jokester! And why not? It makes for good deflection. For all his goofing around, he's doing what so many celebs rarely do — keeping most of his private life private. Steve probably only went on The Late Show to promote his new album, which was also released on April 23. But now we're curious about the baby's real name!
