BANG! NEWS – Jeff Goldblum worries about saying goodbye to his children “prematurely”, being an older dad.
Asked if he worries about being an older dad, he told The Times magazine, “I take them to karate class and they have swimming lessons at our house, and I drop them off at school. I see dads who are younger. I’m feeling good. I can do everything. But it’s not that it doesn’t occur to me. I would not want to say goodbye to them prematurely. There would be an extra reason to be disappointed to check out earlier than I hoped.”
Meanwhile, the 67-year-old actor – who has Charlie, four, and River, two, with his wife Emilie Livingston – previously revealed he is “glad” he waited until later in life to have kids.
He said, “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.”
