Jeff Goldblum, 66, Reveals Reason He Waited Until He’d Turned 60 To Have Children

Jeff Goldblum discusses why he chose not to have kids before he reached his 60s during an appearance on “The Jonathan Ross Show” Saturday.

The 66-year-old, who is married to Emilie Livingston, 35, shares Charlie Ocean, 3, and one-year-old River Joe with the Canadian dancer.

As Ross quizzes him on parenthood, Goldblum insists he was too “busy” and “self-involved” to become a father any sooner than he did.

The actor shares, “[Emilie] said, ‘Jeez, this is going so well, what if we had a baby?’ and I had flirted with the idea before and was glad that I hadn’t and had confirmed to myself that I wasn’t going to.

“It wasn’t until a year later when we went to my therapist and excavated and brought to the surface all of my considerations that I became clear and wildly enthusiastic about it,” he adds, according to the Daily Mail.

“I am glad I didn’t have kids until now, really. I don’t know that I was equipped and I was busy and probably more self-involved than I’m possibly capable of now. We’ll see. I do enjoy my kids now.”

Goldblum also looks back on his lengthy film career, which began 40 years ago.

“I look back on some things and think, I could have done better. I feel I am on the brink of my better and maybe best pretending and work.

“I wake up every day and thank my lucky stars and I am very actively grateful.”
